The Angel with the Small Scroll. 1 *Then I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven wrapped in a cloud, with a halo around his head; his face was like the sun and his feet were like pillars of fire.2 *In his hand he held a small scroll that had been opened. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 r Ps 29, 3–9; Jer 25, 30; Am 3, 8 . and then he cried out in a loud voice as a lion roars. When he cried out, the seven thunders raised their voices, too.4When the seven thunders had spoken, I was about to write it down; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have spoken, but do not write it down.” 5Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven6 s Dt 32, 40; Dn 12, 7 / Ez 12, 28 . *and swore by the one who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and earth and sea and all that is in them, “There shall be no more delay. 7 t Am 3, 7 . *At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets.”

8Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.” 9 *So I went up to the angel and told him to give me the small scroll. He said to me, “Take and swallow it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will taste as sweet as honey.” 10 u Ez 3, 1–3 . I took the small scroll from the angel’s hand and swallowed it. In my mouth it was like sweet honey, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. 11 * Then someone said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.”
