Bible: Revelation 15

The Final Plagues

15:1 Then 1  I saw another great and astounding sign in heaven: seven angels who have seven final plagues 2  (they are final because in them God’s anger is completed).

15:2 Then 3  I saw something like a sea of glass 4  mixed with fire, and those who had conquered 5  the beast and his image and the number of his name. They were standing 6  by 7  the sea of glass, holding harps given to them by God. 8  15:3 They 9  sang the song of Moses the servant 10  of God and the song of the Lamb: 11 

“Great and astounding are your deeds,

Lord God, the All-Powerful! 12 

Just 13  and true are your ways,

King over the nations! 14 

15:4 Who will not fear you, O Lord,

and glorify 15  your name, because you alone are holy? 16 

All nations 17  will come and worship before you

for your righteous acts 18  have been revealed.”

15:5 After 19  these things I looked, and the temple (the tent 20  of the testimony) 21  was opened in heaven, 15:6 and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, dressed in clean bright linen, wearing wide golden belts 22  around their chests. 15:7 Then 23  one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath 24  of God who lives forever and ever, 15:8 and the temple was filled with smoke from God’s glory and from his power. Thus 25  no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues from the seven angels were completed.
