A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.
Revelation 10:1 And I saw another myghtye angell come downe from heauen clothed wt a cloude, & the raynebowe vpon his heed. And his face as it were the sunne, & his fete as it were pyllars of fyre, Revelation 10:2 and he had in his hande a lytell boke open, and he put his ryght fote vpon þe see, & his lyfe fote on the erth. Revelation 10:3 And cryed wyth a lowde voyce, as when a lyon roreth. And when he had cryed, seuen thonders spake their voyces. Revelation 10:4 And when þe .vii. thondres had spoken their voyces, I was about to wryte. And I herde a voyce from heauen, sayinge vnto me: seale vp those thynges whych the .vii. thondres spake, & wryte them not. Revelation 10:5 And þe Angell which I sawe stonde vpon the see, & vpon the erth, lyfte vp his hande to heuen,
He sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time.
Revelation 10:6 and sware by him that lyueth for euer more, wich created heauen, & the thynges that therin are and the see, & the thynges which therin are: þt there shulde be no lenger tyme Revelation 10:7 but in the dayes of the voyce of the seuenth Angell, when he shall begyn to blowe: euen the mystery of God shalbe fynysshed, as he preached by his seruauntes þe prophetes. Revelation 10:8 And þe voyce which I herde from heuen, spake vnto me agayne, & sayd: go & take the lytle boke which is open in the hande of þe angell which standeth vpon þe see, & vpon þe erth.
John is commanded to take and eat the book.
Revelation 10:9 And I went vnto the angell, & sayde to him: geue me the lytle boke, and he sayde vnto me: take it, & eate it vp, & it shall make thy belly bytter, but it shalbe in thy mouthe as swete as hony. Revelation 10:10 And I toke þe lytle boke out of his hande, & eate it vp, & it was in my mouth as swete as hony: and as sone as I had eaten it, my belly was bytter. Revelation 10:11 And he sayde vnto me: þu must prophesy agayne amonge the people, and nacyons, and tonges, and to many kynges.
