6 Then I saw another angel flying in midair,
and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those
who live on the earth — to every nation, tribe,
language, and people.
7 He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and
give him glory because the hour of his judgment has come.
Worship him who made the heavens,
the earth, the sea, and
the springs of water.”
8 A second angel followed and said,
“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,
which made all the nations drink the
maddening wine of her adulteries.”
9 A third angel followed them and said in a
loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image
and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand,
10 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury,
which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath.
He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence
of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for
those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone
who receives the mark of his name.”
12 This calls for patient endurance on the part
of the saints who obey God’s commandments
and remain faithful to Jesus.
