1 Then I saw another great and mar velous sign in the heavens: seven angels brought seven plagues which are the last, for with these the wrath of God will end. 2 There was a sea of crystal mingled with fire, and the conquerors of the beast, of its name and the mark of its name stood by it.
2 They had been given the celestial harps 3 and they sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb:
3 Great and marvelous are your works,
3 O Lord,
3 God and Master of the universe.
3 Justice and truth guide your steps,
3 O King of the nations.
4 Lord, who will not give honor and glory to your Name?
4 For you alone are holy.
4 All the nations will come and bow before you,
4 for they have now seen your judgments.
The seven cups
5 Then the sanctuary of the Tent of Divine Declarations was opened, 6 and the seven angels bringing the seven plagues came out of the Sanctuary, clothed in pure and bright linen, with their waists girded with golden belts. 7 One of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden cups full of the wrath of God who lives for ever and ever. 8 Then the sanctuary was filled with smoke that wraps Godís glory and power, so that no one could enter until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
