v1 Then I saw another great surprise in *heaven. I saw 7 *angels with 7 troubles. They are the last troubles. And God will stop being angry when they have finished. v2 I saw what seemed to be a glass sea with fire in it. I also saw people who were standing at the edge of the glass sea. Those people had beaten the strange animal and its false god, and the number that means its name. They held *harps, to make music. God had given them these *harps. v3 And they sang the song of Moses, Godís servant, and the *Lambís song. They sang:
Ď*Lord God with all authority,
what you do is great and powerful!
You are King of all countries at all times.
Everything that you do is completely fair and honest.
v4 Everyone will *serve and obey you, *Lord.
They will show how great your name is.
Only you are completely good and clean.
People from every country have seen what you do.
So they will come and *worship you.
You always do what is right.í
v5 After this I looked and Godís house in *heaven was open. That house is like Godís tent, where he lived among his people Israel. v6 The 7 *angels with the 7 troubles came out of Godís house. They were wearing clean clothes that were shining. And they had gold belts round the top half of their bodies. v7 Then one of the 4 *beings that were alive gave 7 gold cups to the 7 *angels. The cups were full because God was very angry. He is the God who will always be alive. v8 And Godís house became full of smoke because God is so great and so powerful. Nobody could go into Godís house until the 7 troubles finished. The *angels were bringing those last 7 troubles.
