15 And I saw in heaven another mighty pageant showing things to come: Seven angels were assigned to carry down to earth the seven last plagues—and then at last God’s anger will be finished.

Spread out before me was what seemed to be an ocean of fire and glass, and on it stood all those who had been victorious over the Evil Creature and his statue and his mark and number. All were holding harps of God, 3-4 and they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:

“Great and marvelous

Are your doings,

Lord God Almighty.

Just and true

Are your ways,

O King of Ages.[a]

Who shall not fear,

O Lord,

And glorify your Name?

For you alone are holy.

All nations will come

And worship before you,

For your righteous deeds

Have been disclosed.”

Then I looked and saw that the Holy of Holies of the temple in heaven was thrown wide open!

The seven angels who were assigned to pour out the seven plagues then came from the temple, clothed in spotlessly white linen, with golden belts across their chests. And one of the four Living Beings handed each of them a golden flask filled with the terrible wrath of the Living God who lives forever and forever. The temple was filled with smoke from his glory and power; and no one could enter until the seven angels had completed pouring out the seven plagues.
