Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the sanctuary saying to the seven messengers, 'Go away, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God to the earth;'
The angels pour out their vials full of wrath.
Revelation 16:2 and the first did go away, and did pour out his vial upon the land, and there came a sorebad and grievousto men, those having the mark of the beast, and those bowing to his image. Revelation 16:3 And the second messenger did pour out his vial to the sea, and there came blood as of [one] dead, and every living soul died in the sea. Revelation 16:4 And the third messenger did pour out his vial to the rivers, and to the fountains of the waters, and there came blood, Revelation 16:5 and I heard the messenger of the waters, saying, 'righteous, O Lord, art Thou, who art, and who wast, and who shalt be, because these things Thou didst judge,
The plagues that follow thereupon.
Revelation 16:6 because blood of saints and prophets they did pour out, and blood to them Thou didst give to drink, for they are worthy;' Revelation 16:7 and I heard another out of the altar, saying, 'Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous [are] Thy judgments.' Revelation 16:8 And the fourth messenger did pour out his vial upon the sun, and there was given to him to scorch men with fire, Revelation 16:9 and men were scorched with great heat, and they did speak evil of the name of God, who hath authority over these plagues, and they did not reformto give to Him glory. Revelation 16:10 And the fifth messenger did pour out his vial upon the throne of the beast, and his kingdom did become darkened, and they were gnawing their tongues from the pain, Revelation 16:11 and they did speak evil of the God of the heaven, from their pains, and from their sores, and they did not reform from their works. Revelation 16:12 And the sixth messenger did pour out his vial upon the great river, the Euphrates, and dried up was its water, that the way of the kings who are from the rising of the sun may be made ready; Revelation 16:13 and I saw [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, three unclean spirits like frogs Revelation 16:14 for they are spirits of demons, doing signswhich go forth unto the kings of the earth, and of the whole world, to bring them together to the battle of that great day of God the Almighty;
Christ cometh as a thief. Blessed are they that watch.
Revelation 16:15 'lo, I do come as a thief; happy [is] he who is watching, and keeping his garments, that he may not walk naked, and they may see his unseemliness,' Revelation 16:16 and they did bring them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Armageddon. Revelation 16:17 And the seventh messenger did pour out his vial to the air, and there came forth a great voice from the sanctuary of the heaven, from the throne, saying, 'It hath come!' Revelation 16:18 and there came voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and a great earthquake came, such as came not since men came upon the earth, so mighty an earthquakeso great! Revelation 16:19 And it camethe great cityinto three parts, and the cities of the nations did fall, and Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the wrath of His anger, Revelation 16:20 and every island did flee away, and mountains were not found, Revelation 16:21 and great hail (as of talent weight) doth come down out of the heaven upon men, and men did speak evil of God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague is very great.
