Revelation 10

1 And I saw another strong angel descending out from the heaven wrapped with a cloud and the rainbow upon his head, and his face as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.

2 And having in his hand a little book open. And he placed his right foot upon the sea, and the left upon the earth.

3 And he cried with a great voice, just as a lion roars, and when he cried, the seven thunders spoke their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, and I heard a voice out from the heaven saying, “Seal which things the seven thunders spoke, and you might not write them.

5 And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea, and upon the earth, raised his right hand into the heaven,

6 and swore in the One living into the ages of the ages, Who created the heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that time will be no longer.

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he might be about to trumpet, and the mystery of God is completed, as He preached to His bondservants, the prophets.

8 And the voice which I heard out from the heaven again speaking with me and saying, “Go, take the opened book in the hand of the angel, the one standing upon the sea and upon the earth.”

9 And I went away toward the angel saying to him to give me the little book. And he said to me, “Take and devour it, and it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.”

10 And I took the little book out from the hand of the angel and devoured it, and it was in my mouth sweet as honey, and when I ate it, it made my stomach bitter.

11 And they say to me, “It is necessary for you to prophesy again upon many people and nations and tongues and kings.”
