Bible: Revelation 16:1-11
The Bowls of God’s Wrath
16:1 Then 1 I heard a loud voice from the temple declaring to the seven angels: “Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls containing God’s wrath.” 2 16:2 So 3 the first angel 4 went and poured out his bowl on the earth. Then 5 ugly and painful sores 6 appeared on the people 7 who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
“You are just 13 – the one who is and who was,
the Holy One – because you have passed these judgments, 14
16:6 because they poured out the blood of your saints and prophets,
16:8 Then 20 the fourth angel 21 poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to scorch people 22 with fire. 16:9 Thus 23 people 24 were scorched by the terrible heat, 25 yet 26 they blasphemed the name of God, who has ruling authority 27 over these plagues, and they would not repent and give him glory.
16:10 Then 28 the fifth angel 29 poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast so that 30 darkness covered his kingdom, 31 and people 32 began to bite 33 their tongues because 34 of their pain. 16:11 They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their sufferings 35 and because of their sores, 36 but nevertheless 37 they still refused to repent 38 of their deeds.
