A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.
Revelation 10:1 And I sawe an other myghtye angel come doune from heauen, clothed wyth a cloude, and the rayne bowe vpon hys heade. And hys face as it were the sunne, and hys fete as it were pyllars of fyre Revelation 10:2 and he had in hys hand a lyttel boke open, & he put hys ryghte fote vpon the sea, and hys lyfte fote on þe earth Revelation 10:3 And cryed wyth a loude voyce, as when a Lyon roreth. And when he had cried, seuen thonders spake their voyces. Revelation 10:4 And when the .vij. thonders had spoken their voyces, I was aboute to wryte. And I harde a voice from heauen saying vnto me, seale vp those thynges, which the .vij. thonders spake, and wryte them not. Revelation 10:5 And the angell whyche I sawe stand vpon the sea, and vpon the earth, lyfte vp hys hand to heauen,
He sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time.
Revelation 10:6 and swore by hym that lyueth for euer more, whiche created heauen, and the thynges that therin are, and the sea, and the thynges whyche therin are: that there shoulde be no longer tyme, Revelation 10:7 but in the dayes of the voyce of the seuenth aungel, when he shal begyn to blow, euen the mistery of God shalbe fynished as he preached by his seruauntes the prophetes. Revelation 10:8 And the voyce, whych I hard from heauen, spake vnto me agayne, and sayde, go and take the lytle boke, which is open in the hande of the angell, whyche standeth vpon the sea, and vpon the earth.
John is commanded to take and eat the book.
Revelation 10:9 And I went vnto the angell, and sayd to hym, geue me the lytel boke, and he sayde vnto me take it, and eate it vp, and it shall make thy belly bytter, but it shal be in thy mouth as swete as hony, Revelation 10:10 and I toke the lytle boke out of hys hand, and eate it vp, and it was in my mouth as swete as honye, and assone as I had eaten it, my bealy was bitter. Revelation 10:11 And he sayd vnto me: thou muste prophesye againe amonge the people, and nacyons, and tonges, and to many kynges.
