Seven Angels with Seven Last Plagues
15 And I saw another great and marvelous sign in heaven: seven angels having seven plagues that are the last ones, because with them the wrath of God is completed. 2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had conquered the beast and his image and the number of his name were standing bya the glassy sea, holding harps from God. 3 And they were singing the song of Moses, the slave of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying:
“Great and marvelous are your works,
Lord God All-Powerful;
righteous and true are your ways,
King of the ages!b
and glorify your name?
For only you are holy,
because all the nationsc will come
and worship before you,
because your righteous deeds have been revealed.”
5 And after these things I looked, and the temple, the tent of the testimony in heaven, was opened, 6 and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out from the temple, dressed in clean, bright linen garments, and girded with golden belts around their* chests. 7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives ⌊forever and ever⌋d, 8 and the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
