Vision of Seven Curses
1 Then I saw another portent in the heavens — a great and marvellous portent — seven angels with the seven last curses; because with them the wrath of God is ended.
2 Then I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mixed with fire; and, standing by this sea of glass, holding the harps of God, I saw those who had come victorious out of the conflict with the Beast and its image and the number that formed its name.
3 They are singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb —
“Great and marvellous are your deeds, Lord, our God, the Almighty. Righteous and true are your ways, eternal King.
4 Who will not honour and praise your name, Lord? You alone are holy! All nations will come and worship before you, for your judgments have become manifest.”
5 After this I saw that the inmost shrine of the tent of testimony in heaven was opened,
6 and out of it came the seven angels with the seven curses. They were adorned with precious stones, pure and bright, and had golden girdles round their breasts.
7 One of the four creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls, filled with the wrath of God who lives for ever and ever.
8 “The Temple was filled with smoke from the glory” and Majesty of God; and no one could enter the Temple, until the seven curses inflicted by the seven angels were at an end.
