Revelation Chapter 16

Rev 16:1 I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God into the land.

Rev 16:2 So the first went, and poured out his bowl into the land; and there fell loathsome and malignant sores on the men who had the mark of the wild beast, and on those who worshiped his image.

Rev 16:3 Then the second poured out his bowl into the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man; and every living soul died in the sea.

Rev 16:4 And the third poured out his bowl into the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

Rev 16:5 Then I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, O Lord who is and was, because You have so judged these.

Rev 16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink; for they deserve it!

Rev 16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.

Rev 16:8 So the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to scorch men with fire.

Rev 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, Who holds the authority over these calamities; yet they did not repent to give Him glory.

Rev 16:10 Then the fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the wild beast; and his dominion was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Rev 16:11 and blasphemed the God of the heavens because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.

Rev 16:12 So the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river Euphrates; and the waters themselves dried up, that the way of the kings of the rising of the sun might be prepared.

Rev 16:13 For I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of demons, doing signs, who go out to the rulers of the land and the Roman world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Rev 16:15 Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he that is watching, and keeping his garments, unless he is walking naked, and they are seeing his indecency.

Rev 16:16 So he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew, Armageddon.

Rev 16:17 And the seventh poured out his bowl into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple from the throne, saying, it is done!

Rev 16:18 So there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the land, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

Rev 16:19 Then the great city was divided into three parts, and the city of the people fell; and great Babylon was remembered before God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

Rev 16:20 For every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell on men a great hail out of the heavens, every stone about the weight of a talent; and men blasphemed God because of the calamity of the hail; for the calamity of it was intensely significant.
