4. The Outpouring of the Seven Bowls
a. The Last Seven Plagues
1 And I saw another asign in heaven, great and wonderful, bseven angels having 1seven cplagues, the last plagues; for in them the dfury of God was finished.
b. The Praise of the Late Overcomers
2 And I saw as it were a 1aglassy sea mingled with fire and 2bthose who come away victorious from the cbeast and from his dimage and from the enumber of his name 3standing on the glassy sea, having fharps of God.
3 And they sing the 1asong of Moses, the bslave of God, and the 2csong of the Lamb, saying, dGreat and ewonderful are Your 3works, fLord God the Almighty! gRighteous and true are Your 3hways, O iKing of the 4nations!
4 Who will not afear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are 1bholy; for call the nations will come and worship before You, for Your 2drighteous judgments have been manifested.
c. The Scene in Heaven
before the Outpouring of the Seven Bowls
5 And after these things I saw, and the 1atemple of the btabernacle of the 2testimony in heaven was opened,
6 And the seven angels who had the seven plagues acame out of the temple, 1clothed in clean bright blinen and cgirded around the breasts with golden girdles.
7 And one of the afour living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bbowls full of the fury of God, who clives forever and ever.
8 And the atemple was filled with bsmoke from the cglory of God and from His power, and 1dno one could enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
d. The First Bowl:
A Malignant Sore upon the Worshippers of Antichrist
1 And I heard a loud voice out of the atemple, saying to the bseven angels, Go and pour out the seven 1bowls of the cfury of God into the earth.
2 And the first went and poured out his bowl into the aearth; and there came to be an evil and malignant 1bsore upon the men who have the cmark of the beast and worship his image.
e. The Second Bowl:
The Sea Becoming Blood
3 And the second poured out his bowl into the asea, and it became bblood like that of a dead man; and 1every living soul that was in the sea died.
f. The Third Bowl:
The Rivers and Springs Becoming Blood
4 And the third poured out his bowl into the arivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel who had power over the waters saying, You are 1arighteous, 2bwho is and who was, the 1cHoly One, because You have djudged these things;
6 For they poured out the ablood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink; they are worthy of it.
7 And I heard the aaltar saying, 1Yes, bLord God the Almighty, 2ctrue and righteous are Your judgments.
g. The Fourth Bowl:
The Sun Burning Men with Fire
8 And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the asun; and it was given to it to burn men with fire.
9 And men were burned with great heat, and they ablasphemed the name of God, who has the authority over these plagues, and they did bnot repent so as to cgive Him glory.
h. The Fifth Bowl:
The Kingdom of Antichrist Becoming Darkened
10 And the fifth poured out his bowl upon the 1athrone of the beast; and his bkingdom became cdarkened; and they gnawed their tongues for pain
11 And ablasphemed the bGod of heaven for their pains and for their csores; and they did dnot repent of their works.
i. The Sixth Bowl:
The Euphrates Dried Up
12 And the 1sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river aEuphrates; and its water was bdried up that the way of the kings from the crising of the sun might be prepared.
j. The Vision Inserted
between the Sixth and Seventh Bowls:
The Gathering at Armageddon
13 And I saw, out of the mouth of the adragon and out of the mouth of the bbeast and out of the mouth of the cfalse prophet, three 1dunclean spirits as efrogs;
14 For they are aspirits of demons doing bsigns, which go forth to the kings of the cwhole inhabited earth to gather them to the dwar of the egreat day of God the Almighty.
15 (Behold, I 1come as a athief. Blessed is he who bwatches and keeps his cgarments that he may not walk dnaked and they see his shame.)
16 And they 1agathered them to the place which in Hebrew is called, 2Armageddon.
k. The Seventh Bowl:
The Greatest Earthquake and the Great Hail
17 And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air; and a loud voice came out of the 1atemple from the bthrone, saying, It is 2cdone.
18 And there were alightnings and voices and thunders; and there was a great 1bearthquake, such as had cnot been since man appeared on the earth, such an earthquake, so great.
19 And the 1agreat city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And 2bBabylon the Great was cremembered before God to give her the dcup of the 3wine of the fury of His wrath.
20 And every aisland fled, and the mountains were not found.
21 And great ahail, every stone about the weight of a 1talent, came down out of heaven upon men; and men 2bblasphemed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague of it is exceedingly great.
