Revelation 10 ©

1 A mighty angel appeareth with a book open in his hand; 5 and sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time. 8 John is commanded to take and eat the book, and to prophesy.


AND I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, aclothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and bhis feet as pillars of fire:


And he had in his hand ca little book open: and he dset his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,


And ecried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, fseven thunders uttered their voices.

f ch. 8.5; 14.2; 15.1,7; 16.

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I gwas about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, hSeal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.


And the angel which I saw istand upon the sea and upon the earth jlifted up his hand to heaven,


And sware by him that kliveth for ever and ever, who lcreated heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that mthere should be time no longer:


But in nthe days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.


And othe voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and ptake the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.


And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, qTake it, and eat it up; and rit shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.


sAnd I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.


And he said unto me, Thou must tprophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
