10 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. aAnd a rainbow was on bhis head, his face was like the sun, and chis feet like pillars of fire. 2 He had a little book open in his hand. dAnd he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, eseven thunders uttered their voices. 4 Now when the seven thunders 1uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying 2to me, f“Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.”
5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land graised up his 3hand to heaven 6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, hwho created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, ithat there should be delay no longer, 7 but jin the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
