6 Then I saw another angel m flying in the midst of heaven, n having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth - o to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people - 7 saying with a loud voice, p "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; q and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."
8 And another angel followed, saying, r "Babylon 1 is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because s she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, t "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his u mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 "he himself v shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is w poured out full strength into x the cup of His indignation. y He shall be tormented with z fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 "And a the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."
12 b Here is the 2 patience of the saints; c here 3 are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying 4 to me, "Write: d 'Blessed are the dead e who die in the Lord from now on.' " "Yes," says the Spirit, f "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow g them."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
