10 Then I saw another mighty angel u coming down from heaven, surrounded by a cloud, with a rainbow v over his head. w His face was like the sun, his legs x were like fiery pillars, y 2 and he had a little scroll opened in his hand. He put his right foot on the sea, his left on the land, 3 and he cried out with a loud voice like a roaring lion. When he cried out, the seven thunders spoke with their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write. Then I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Seal up what the seven thunders said, z and do not write it down!”
5 Then the angel that I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. 6 He swore an oath by the One who lives forever and ever, a who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it: “There will no longer be an interval of time, b 7 but in the days of the sound of the seventh angel, c when he will blow his trumpet, then God’s * hidden plan d will be completed, as He announced to His servants e the prophets.” f
9 So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take and eat it; it will be bitter in your stomach, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.” g
10 Then I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I ate it, my stomach became bitter. h 11 And I was told, i “You must prophesy again about j many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.” k
