and (A)the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and (B)no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.

The Seven Bowls of God's Wrath

16 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling (C)the seven angels, “Go and (D)pour out on the earth (E)the seven bowls of the wrath of God.”

So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful (F)sores came upon the people who bore (G)the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and (H)it became like the blood of a corpse, and (I)every living thing died that was in the sea.

The third angel poured out his bowl into (J)the rivers and the springs of water, and (K)they became blood. And I heard the angel in charge of the waters[a] say,

(L)“Just are you, (M)O Holy One, (N)who is and who was,
    for you brought these judgments.
For (O)they have shed the blood of (P)saints and prophets,
    and (Q)you have given them blood to drink.
It is what they deserve!”

And I heard (R)the altar saying,

“Yes, Lord God the Almighty,
    (S)true and just are your judgments!”

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people (T)with fire.
