A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.
Revelation 10:1 And I sawe another myghtie Angel come downe fro heaue, clothed with a cloude, and ye raynebowe vpon his head, and his face as it were the sunne, and his feete as it were pillers of fyre. Revelation 10:2 And he had in his hande a litle booke open, and he put his ryght foote vpon the sea, and his left foote on the earth: Revelation 10:3 And cryed with a loude voyce, as whe a Lion roreth: And when he had cryed, seuen thunders vttered their voyces. Revelation 10:4 And when the seuen thunders had vttered their voyces, I was about to write: and I hearde a voyce from heauen, saying vnto me: seale vp those thinges which the seuen thunders vttered, and write them not. Revelation 10:5 And the Angel which I sawe stande vpon the sea and vpon the earth, lyft vp his hande to heauen,
He sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time.
Revelation 10:6 And sware by hym that lyueth for euermore, which created heauen and the thynges that therin are, & the earth and the thinges that therin are, and the sea, and the thynges which therin are, that there shoulde be no longer tyme. Revelation 10:7 But in the dayes of the voyce of the seuenth Angel, when he shall begyn to blowe, euen the misterie of God shalbe finished, as he declared to his seruautes the prophetes. Revelation 10:8 And the voyce which I hearde from heauen, spake vnto me agayne, & sayde: Go, and take the litle booke which is open in the hande of the Angel, which standeth vpon the sea and vpon ye earth.
John is commanded to take and eat the book.
Revelation 10:9 And I went vnto the Angel, & sayde vnto hym, geue me the litle booke. And he sayde vnto me, take it and eate it vp, and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shalbe in thy mouth as sweete as hony. Revelation 10:10 And I toke the litle booke out of the Angels hande, and ate it vp, and it was in my mouth as sweete as hony: and assoone as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. Revelation 10:11 And he sayde vnto me, thou must prophesie agayne among the people, and nations, and tongues, & to many kinges.
