15 Then I saw another great and awe-inspiring signM in heaven:ah seven angels with the seven last plagues; for with them God’s wrath will be completed.ai 2 I also saw something like a sea of glassa mixed with fire, and those who had won the victory over the beast, its image,A and the number of its name, were standing on the sea of glass with harps from God.b 3 They sang the song of God’s servant Mosesc and the song of the Lamb:
Great and awe-inspiring are your works,
Lord God, the Almighty;
just and trued are your ways,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.f
All the nations will come
and worship before youg
because your righteous acts
have been revealed.
5 After this I looked, and the heavenly temple—the tabernacle of testimonyh—was opened.i 6 Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues, dressed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes wrapped around their chests. 7 One of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.j 8 Then the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power,k and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
