15 I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign:b seven angelsc with the seven last plaguesd—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed. 2 And I saw what looked like a sea of glasse glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victoriousf over the beastg and its imageh and over the number of its name.i They held harpsj given them by God 3 and sang the song of God’s servantk Mosesl and of the Lamb:m
“Great and marvelous are your deeds,n
Lord God Almighty.o
Just and true are your ways,p
King of the nations.a
4 Who will not fear you, Lord,q
and bring glory to your name?r
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship before you,s
5 After this I looked, and I saw in heaven the templeu—that is, the tabernacle of the covenant lawv—and it was opened.w 6 Out of the templex came the seven angels with the seven plagues.y They were dressed in clean, shining linenz and wore golden sashes around their chests.a 7 Then one of the four living creaturesb gave to the seven angelsc seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever.d 8 And the temple was filled with smokee from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the templef until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
