New International Version
6 Out of the temple(A) came the seven angels with the seven plagues.(B) They were dressed in clean, shining linen(C) and wore golden sashes around their chests.(D) 7 Then one of the four living creatures(E) gave to the seven angels(F) seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever.(G) 8 And the temple was filled with smoke(H) from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple(I) until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath
3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.(P)
“You are just in these judgments,(S) O Holy One,(T)
you who are and who were;(U)
6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,(V)
and you have given them blood to drink(W) as they deserve.”
7 And I heard the altar(X) respond:
8 The fourth angel(AA) poured out his bowl on the sun,(AB) and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.(AC) 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God,(AD) who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent(AE) and glorify him.(AF)
10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast,(AG) and its kingdom was plunged into darkness.(AH) People gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed(AI) the God of heaven(AJ) because of their pains and their sores,(AK) but they refused to repent of what they had done.(AL)
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates,(AM) and its water was dried up to prepare the way(AN) for the kings from the East.(AO) 13 Then I saw three impure spirits(AP) that looked like frogs;(AQ) they came out of the mouth of the dragon,(AR) out of the mouth of the beast(AS) and out of the mouth of the false prophet.(AT) 14 They are demonic spirits(AU) that perform signs,(AV) and they go out to the kings of the whole world,(AW) to gather them for the battle(AX) on the great day(AY) of God Almighty.
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air,(BF) and out of the temple(BG) came a loud voice(BH) from the throne, saying, “It is done!”(BI) 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder(BJ) and a severe earthquake.(BK) No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth,(BL) so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city(BM) split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered(BN) Babylon the Great(BO) and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath.(BP) 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found.(BQ) 21 From the sky huge hailstones,(BR) each weighing about a hundred pounds,[a] fell on people. And they cursed God(BS) on account of the plague of hail,(BT) because the plague was so terrible.

6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs 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.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
