Revelation chapter 16

Updated: Jul 7

Literal translation of the Greek:

Revelation 16

1 and I heard a great voice from the temple say to the seven messengers, go

down and pour out the bottles of the wrath of God onto the earth

2 and the first one departed and poured out his bottle upon the earth and bad

and hurtful sores(ulcers) came to mankind upon those who had the etched mark

of the beast and who adore(worship) his image(false god)

3 and the second messenger poured out his bottle into the sea and it became

blood as of a dead person and every living soul in the sea died

4 and the third messenger poured out his bottle into the rivers(streams, creeks)

and into the water springs and it became blood

5 and I heard the messenger of the water say, righteous is the Lord Who is and

was and is to come because these You judge

6 because the blood of the Holy One and the prophets blood was spilled, You give

them to drink as their reward

7 and I heard another from the altar saying, yes Lord God Almighty, true and

just is Your judgement

8 and the fourth messenger poured out his bottle upon the sun and gave it to

burn mankind in lightning(fire)

9 and it burned(scorched) mankind with great heat and they spoke evil

(blasphemed) of the Name of God Who has authority over the calamities

(plagues, disasters)and they did not repent(turn, rethink) nor give Him glory

10 and the fifth messenger poured out his bottle over the throne of the beast

and his kingdom became full of darkness and they chewed(gnawed) their tongues

from pain(anguish)

11 and spoke evil(blasphemed) of God in the heaven from their pain(anguish)

and from their sores(ulcers) and did not repent(turn, rethink) of their works

12 and the sixth messenger poured out his bottle upon the great river Euphrates

and dried up its water so as to prepare the way(road) for the kings that are away

from the east sun

13 and I saw from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and

from the mouth of the false prophet came three unclean spirits similar to a frog

14 because they are the spirits of demons(evil spirits) making signs(wonders) come from the king(ruler) of the earth and the whole world gathered unto them to the war that very day of the great God Almighty

15 see I come as a thief, blessed is the careful(observant) watcher(keeper,

guard) that clothe(cover) themselves so as to not go about naked and see their

shame(ugliness, wretchedness)

16 and gather them into the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon

17 and the seventh messenger poured out his bottle into the air and a great

voice came from the temple in heaven from the Throne saying, it has happened

(it has become)

18 and there were voices and thunder and lightning(bright shining) and a great

earthquake happened such as has never happened since mankind has been on

earth, like this great earthquake

19 and it happened that the great city (was divided, implied) into three parts and

the cities of the tribes(nations, gentiles) fell and Babylon the great was given to

be remembered before God and the cup of wine of the wrath of His anger

20 and all isles(islands) fled away and the mountains were not found

21 and great hail like a talent(1 silver talent = 45Kg, 1 gold talent = 91Kg) fell

from the heaven upon the men(mankind) and they spoke evil of men(mankind)

and God because of the calamity(plague, disaster) of the hail because great is its

calamity(plague, disaster) and violent

Textus Receptus Greek:

Revelation 16

1  και ηκουσα φωνης μεγαλης εκ του ναου λεγουσης τοις επτα αγγελοις

υπαγετε και εκχεατε τας φιαλας του θυμου του θεου εις την γην 

2  και απηλθεν ο πρωτος και εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου επι την γην και

εγενετο ελκος κακον και πονηρον εις τους ανθρωπους τους εχοντας το

χαραγμα του θηριου και τους τη εικονι αυτου προσκυνουντας 

3  και ο δευτερος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου εις την θαλασσαν και

εγενετο αιμα ως νεκρου και πασα ψυχη ζωσα απεθανεν εν τη θαλασση 

4  και ο τριτος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου εις τους ποταμους και εις

τας πηγας των υδατων και εγενετο αιμα 

5  και ηκουσα του αγγελου των υδατων λεγοντος δικαιος κυριε ει ο ων και ο

ην και ο εσομενος οτι ταυτα εκρινας 

6  οτι αιμα αγιων και προφητων εξεχεαν και αιμα αυτοις εδωκας πιειν αξιοι

γαρ εισιν 

7  και ηκουσα αλλου εκ του θυσιαστηριου λεγοντος ναι κυριε ο θεος ο

παντοκρατωρ αληθιναι και δικαιαι αι κρισεις σου 

8  και ο τεταρτος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου επι τον ηλιον και εδοθη

αυτω καυματισαι τους ανθρωπους εν πυρι 

9  και εκαυματισθησαν οι ανθρωποι καυμα μεγα και εβλασφημησαν το ονομα

του θεου του εχοντος εξουσιαν επι τας πληγας ταυτας και ου μετενοησαν

δουναι αυτω δοξαν 

10  και ο πεμπτος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου επι τον θρονον του

θηριου και εγενετο η βασιλεια αυτου εσκοτωμενη και εμασσωντο τας

γλωσσας αυτων εκ του πονου 

11  και εβλασφημησαν τον θεον του ουρανου εκ των πονων αυτων και εκ των

ελκων αυτων και ου μετενοησαν εκ των εργων αυτων 

12  και ο εκτος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου επι τον ποταμον τον μεγαν

τον ευφρατην και εξηρανθη το υδωρ αυτου ινα ετοιμασθη η οδος των

βασιλεων των απο ανατολων ηλιου 

13  και ειδον εκ του στοματος του δρακοντος και εκ του στοματος του θηριου

και εκ του στοματος του ψευδοπροφητου πνευματα τρια ακαθαρτα ομοια


14  εισιν γαρ πνευματα δαιμονων ποιουντα σημεια α εκπορευεται επι τους

βασιλεις της γης και της οικουμενης ολης συναγαγειν αυτους εις τον πολεμον

της ημερας εκεινης της μεγαλης του θεου του παντοκρατορος 

15  ιδου ερχομαι ως κλεπτης μακαριος ο γρηγορων και τηρων τα ιματια αυτου

ινα μη γυμνος περιπατη και βλεπωσιν την ασχημοσυνην αυτου 

16  και συνηγαγεν αυτους εις τον τοπον τον καλουμενον εβραιστι


17  και ο εβδομος αγγελος εξεχεεν την φιαλην αυτου εις τον αερα και εξηλθεν

φωνη μεγαλη απο του ναου του ουρανου απο του θρονου λεγουσα γεγονεν 

18  και εγενοντο φωναι και βρονται και αστραπαι και σεισμος εγενετο μεγας

οιος ουκ εγενετο αφ ου οι ανθρωποι εγενοντο επι της γης τηλικουτος σεισμος

ουτως μεγας 

19  και εγενετο η πολις η μεγαλη εις τρια μερη και αι πολεις των εθνων

επεσον και βαβυλων η μεγαλη εμνησθη ενωπιον του θεου δουναι αυτη το

ποτηριον του οινου του θυμου της οργης αυτου 

20  και πασα νησος εφυγεν και ορη ουχ ευρεθησαν 

21  και χαλαζα μεγαλη ως ταλαντιαια καταβαινει εκ του ουρανου επι τους

ανθρωπους και εβλασφημησαν οι ανθρωποι τον θεον εκ της πληγης της

χαλαζης οτι μεγαλη εστιν η πληγη αυτης σφοδρα
