6th Bowl of WRATH
12 The 6th Angel poured out his BOWL
on the GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES,
and its WATER was DRIED UP
to PREPARE THE WAY for the KINGS FROM THE EAST.
13 Then I saw 3 EVIL SPIRITS that looked like FROGS;
they came out of the MOUTH of the DRAGON,
out of the MOUTH of the BEAST
and out of the MOUTH of the FALSE PROPHET.
14 They are SPIRITS OF DEMONS PERFORMING MIRACULOUS SIGNS,
and they GO OUT to the KINGS OF THE WHOLE WORLD,
to GATHER THEM for THE BATTLE
on THE GREAT DAY OF GOD ALMIGHTY.
15 "Behold, I come like a THIEF !
BLESSED is he who STAYS AWAKE and KEEPS HIS CLOTHES WITH HIM,
so that he may NOT GO NAKED and be SHAMEFULLY EXPOSED."
16 Then they GATHERED THE KINGS together
to the place that in Hebrew is called

11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a WHITE HORSE,whose rider is called FAITHFUL and TRUE.With JUSTICE he JUDGES and WAGES WAR.12 His EYES are like BLAZING FIRE, and on his HEAD are MANY CROWNS.He has a NAME written on him that no one knows but he himself.13 He is dressed in a ROBE DIPPED IN BLOOD,and his NAME is the WORD OF GOD.14 The ARMIES OF HEAVEN were FOLLOWING HIM,RIDING ON WHITE HORSES and dressed in FINE LINEN, WHITE and CLEAN.15 Coming out of his MOUTH is a SHARP SWORD with which to STRIKE DOWN THE NATIONS.“He will rule them with an IRON SCEPTER.”He treads the WINEPRESS OF THE FURY OF THE WRATH OF GOD ALMIGHTY.16 On his ROBE and on his THIGH he has this NAME WRITTEN:KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.17 And I saw an ANGEL standing in the SUN,who CRIED in a LOUD VOICE to all the BIRDS FLYING IN MIDAIR,“COME, GATHER TOGETHER FOR THE GREAT SUPPER OF GOD,18 so that you may EAT the FLESH of KINGS, GENERALS,and the MIGHTY, of HORSES and their RIDERS, and the FLESH OF ALL PEOPLE,FREE and SLAVE, GREAT and SMALL.”19 Then I saw the BEAST and the KINGS OF THE EARTH and THEIR ARMIES GATHERED TOGETHER TO WAGE WAR AGAINST THE RIDER ON THE HORSE AND HIS ARMY.20 But the BEAST was CAPTURED,and with it the FALSE PROPHET who had performed the signs on its behalf.With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.The 2 OF THEM were thrown alive into the FIERY LAKE OF BURNING SULFUR.21 The rest were killed with the SWORD coming out of the MOUTH of the RIDER ON THE HORSE,and all the BIRDS GORGED THEMSELVES on their FLESH.
3 “IN THOSE DAYS and AT THAT TIME,
when I RESTORE THE FORTUNES OF JUDAH and Jerusalem,
2 I will GATHER ALL NATIONS
and bring them down to the VALLEY OF JEHOSHAPHAT.
There I will put them on TRIAL
for WHAT THEY DID TO MY INHERITANCE, MY PEOPLE ISRAEL,
because they SCATTERED MY PEOPLE AMONG THE NATIONS
and DIVIDED UP MY LAND.
3 They CAST LOTS for MY PEOPLE
and TRADED BOYS FOR PROSTITUTES;
they SOLD GIRLS FOR WINE TO DRINK.
4 “Now what have you against me, Tyre and Sidon
and all you regions of Philistia?
Are you repaying me for something I have done?
If you are paying me back,
I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done.
5 For you took my silver and my gold and carried off my finest treasures to your temples.
6 You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks,
that you might send them far from their homeland.
7 “See, I am going to rouse them out of the places to which you sold them,
and I will return on your own heads what you have done.
8 I will sell your sons and daughters to the people of Judah,
and they will sell them to the Sabeans, a nation far away.”
The Lord has spoken.
9 PROCLAIM THIS AMONG THE NATIONS:
PREPARE FOR WAR!
Rouse the warriors!
Let all the fighting men draw near and attack.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords
and your pruning hooks into spears.
Let the weakling say,
“I am strong!”
11 Come quickly, all you nations from every side,
and assemble there.
Bring down your warriors, Lord!
12 “LET THE NATIONS BE ROUSED;
LET THEM ADVANCE INTO THE VALLEY OF JEHOSHAPHAT,
for there I WILL SIT TO JUDGE ALL THE NATIONS ON EVERY SIDE.
13 SWING THE SICKLE,
for the HARVEST IS RIPE.
Come, TRAMPLE THE GRAPES,
for the WINEPRESS IS FULL
and the VATS OVERFLOW—
so great is their wickedness!”
14 Multitudes, multitudes
in the valley of decision!
For the DAY OF THE LORD is near
in the valley of decision.
15 The SUN and MOON will be DARKENED,
and the STARS NO LONGER SHINE.
16 The LORD will ROAR from ZION
and THUNDER from JERUSALEM;
the earth and the heavens will TREMBLE.
But the Lord will be a REFUGE FOR HIS PEOPLE,
a STRONGHOLD for the people of Israel.
BLESSINGS for God’s People
17 “Then you will know that I, the Lord your God,
dwell in ZION, my HOLY HILL.
JERUSALEM WILL BE HOLY;
never again will foreigners invade her.
18 “In that day the MOUNTAINS will drip NEW WINE,
and the HILLS will FLOW WITH MILK;
all the RAVINES of Judah will run with WATER.
A FOUNTAIN will FLOW out of the LORD’S HOUSE
and will water the valley of acacias.
19 But EGYPT will be DESOLATE,
EDOM a DESERT WASTE,
because of VIOLENCE done to the people of Judah,
in whose land they SHED INNOCENT BLOOD.
20 Judah will be inhabited forever
and Jerusalem through all generations.
21 SHALL I LEAVE THEIR INNOCENT BLOOD UNAVENGED?
NO, I WILL NOT.”
THE LORD DWELLS IN ZION!
Seal 1, 3, 4, 6 & Trumpet 1, 2, 3 & Bowl 2, 3, 6 & 7 Combined Language!
2 …In WRATH remember mercy.
3 God came from Teman,
The Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah
HIS GLORY COVERED THE HEAVENS,
And the EARTH was FULL OF HIS PRAISE.
4 His BRIGHTNESS was like the LIGHT;
He had RAYS FLASHING from His HAND,
And there HIS POWER was hidden.
5 BEFORE HIM went PESTILENCE (Seal 4),
And FEVER followed at His FEET.
6 He STOOD and MEASURED THE EARTH;
He LOOKED and STARTLED THE NATIONS.
And the everlasting MOUNTAINS were scattered (Seal 6 & Bowl 7)
The perpetual HILLS BOWED.
His ways are everlasting.
7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction;
The curtains of the land of Midian trembled.
8 O Lord, were You displeased with the RIVERS (Trumpet 3 & Bowl 3),
Was Your ANGER against the RIVERS (Trumpet 3 & Bowl 3),
Was Your WRATH against the SEA (Trumpet 2 & Bowl 2),
That You RODE on Your HORSES (Seal 1 & Bowl 6)
Your CHARIOTS OF SALVATION?
9 Your BOW was made quite READY (Seal 1);
OATHS were SWORN over YOUR ARROWS (Seal 1). Selah
You DIVIDED the EARTH with RIVERS.
10 The MOUNTAINS saw You and TREMBLED (Seal 6 & Bowl 7);
The overflowing of the water passed by.
The DEEP uttered its VOICE,
And lifted its hands on high.
11 The SUN and MOON STOOD STILL in their habitation
(Seal 6 & Trumpet 4 & Bowl 4);
At the LIGHT OF YOUR ARROWS they went,
At the SHINING of Your GLITTERING SPEAR.
12 You marched through the land in INDIGNATION;
You TRAMPLED THE NATIONS in ANGER. (Bowl 6)
13 You went forth for the salvation of Your people,
For SALVATION with Your ANOINTED.
You struck the head from the house of the wicked,
By laying bare from foundation to neck. Selah
14 You thrust through with HIS OWN ARROWS
The head of his villages.
They came out like a whirlwind to scatter me;
Their rejoicing was like feasting on the poor in secret.
15 You walked through the sea with Your horses,
Through the heap of great waters.
16 When I HEARD, my BODY TREMBLED;
My LIPS QUIVERED at the VOICE;
ROTTENNESS ENTERED MY BONES;
And I trembled in myself,
That I might rest in THE DAY OF TROUBLE.
When he comes up to the people,
He will invade them with his troops.
17 Though the FIG TREE may NOT BLOSSOM,
NOR FRUIT be on the VINES (Trumpet 1, Seal 3, 4 & 7 Bowls);
Though the LABOR of the OLIVE may FAIL,
And the FIELDS YIELD NO FOOD (Trumpet 1, Seal 3, 4 & 7 Bowls);
Though the FLOCK may be CUT OFF from the fold,
And there be NO HERD in the STALLS—
18 YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19 The Lord God is my strength;
He will make my feet like deer’s feet,
And He will make me walk on my high hills.
Come near, you NATIONS, and LISTEN;
PAY ATTENTION, YOU PEOPLES!
Let The Earth Hear, and ALL THAT IS IN IT,
the WORLD, and ALL that COMES OUT OF IT!
2 THE LORD IS ANGRY WITH ALL NATIONS;
HIS WRATH IS ON ALL THEIR ARMIES.
He will TOTALLY DESTROY THEM,
he will give them over to SLAUGHTER.
3 Their SLAIN will be THROWN OUT,
their DEAD BODIES will STINK;
the MOUNTAINS will be SOAKED with their BLOOD.
4 All the STARS in the SKY will be DISSOLVED
and the HEAVENS ROLLED UP LIKE A SCROLL;
all the STARRY HOST WILL FALL
like withered leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
5 My SWORD has DRUNK its fill in the heavens;
see, it descends in judgment on Edom,
the people I have TOTALLY DESTROYED.
6 The SWORD OF THE LORD is BATHED IN BLOOD,
it is covered with fat—
the blood of lambs and goats,
fat from the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a SACRIFICE IN BOZRAH
and a GREAT SLAUGHTER in the land of Edom.
7 And the wild oxen will fall with them,
the bull calves and the great bulls.
Their LAND will be DRENCHED WITH BLOOD,
and the dust will be soaked with fat.
8 For the LORD has a DAY OF VENGEANCE,
A YEAR OF RETRIBUTION, to UPHOLD ZION’S CAUSE.
9 Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch,
her dust into BURNING SULFUR;
her land will become BLAZING PITCH!
10 It will not be quenched night or day;
its SMOKE will RISE FOREVER.
From generation to generation it will lie DESOLATE;
no one will ever pass through it again.
11 The DESERT OWL and SCREECH OWL will possess it;
the GREAT OWL and the RAVEN will nest there.
God will stretch out over Edom
the MEASURING LINE OF CHAOS
and the PLUMB LINE OF DESOLATION.
12 Her nobles will have nothing there to be called a kingdom,
all her princes will VANISH away.
13 THORNS will overrun her citadels,
NETTLES and BRAMBLES her strongholds.
She will become a HAUNT FOR JACKALS,
a home for OWLS.
14 DESERT CREATURES will meet with hyenas,
and WILD GOATS will bleat to each other;
there the NIGHT CREATURES will also lie down
and find for themselves places of rest.
15 The OWL will nest there and lay eggs,
she will hatch them, and care for her young
under the shadow of her wings;
there also the FALCONS will gather,
each with its mate.
16 LOOK IN THE SCROLL OF THE LORD AND READ:
None of these will be missing,
not one will lack her mate.
For it is his mouth that has given the order,
and HIS SPIRIT will GATHER THEM TOGETHER.
17 He allots their portions;
his hand distributes them by measure.
They will possess it forever
and dwell there from generation to generation.
27 See, the NAME OF THE LORD comes from afar,
with BURNING ANGER and DENSE CLOUDS OF SMOKE;
his LIPS are FULL OF WRATH,
and his TONGUE is a CONSUMING FIRE.
28 His BREATH is like a RUSHING TORRENT,
rising up to the neck.
HE SHAKES THE NATIONS in the sieve of DESTRUCTION;
he places in the jaws of the peoples
a bit that leads them astray.
29 And you will SING
as on the night you CELEBRATE a HOLY FESTIVAL;
your HEARTS will REJOICE
as when people playing pipes go up
to the MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD,
to the rock of Israel.
30 The LORD will CAUSE PEOPLE to HEAR HIS MAJESTIC VOICE
and will make them SEE HIS ARM COMING DOWN
with RAGING ANGER and CONSUMING FIRE,
with CLOUDBURST, THUNDERSTORM and HAIL.
31 The VOICE OF THE LORD will SHATTER ASSYRIA;
with his ROD he will STRIKE them down.
32 Every stroke the Lord lays on them
with HIS PUNISHING CLUB
will be to the MUSIC OF TIMBRELS and HARPS,
as he FIGHTS THEM IN BATTLE WITH THE BLOWS OF HIS ARM.
7 Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel,
that attack her and her fortress and besiege her,
will be as it is with a dream,
with a vision in the night—
8 as when a hungry person dreams of eating,
but awakens hungry still;
as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking,
but awakens faint and thirsty still.
So will it be with the hordes of all the nations
that fight against Mount Zion.
9 Be stunned and amazed,
blind yourselves and be sightless;
be drunk, but not from wine,
stagger, but not from beer.
10 The Lord has brought over you a deep sleep:
He has sealed your eyes (the prophets);
he has covered your heads (the seers).
8 Therefore wait for me,”
declares the Lord,
“for the day I will stand up to testify.
I have decided to assemble the nations,
to gather the kingdoms
and to pour out my wrath on them—
all my fierce anger.
The whole world will be consumed
by the fire of my jealous anger.
9 Then I will purify the lips of the peoples,
that all of them may call on the name of the Lord
and serve him shoulder to shoulder.
28 Do not be afraid, Jacob my servant,
for I am with you,” declares the Lord.
“Though I completely destroy all the nations
among which I scatter you,
I will not completely destroy you.
I will discipline you but only in due measure;
I will not let you go entirely unpunished.”
1 Why do the nations conspire
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 “I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will break them with a rod of iron;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah.
According to alamoth. A song.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.
1 GREAT IS THE LORD, and MOST WORTHY OF PRAISE,
in the CITY OF OUR GOD, HIS HOLY MOUNTAIN.
2 BEAUTIFUL in its LOFTINESS,
the JOY of the WHOLE EARTH,
like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion,
the CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
3 GOD IS IN HER CITADELS;
HE HAS SHOWN HIMSELF TO BE HER FORTRESS.
4 When the KINGS JOINED FORCES,
when they ADVANCED TOGETHER,
5 they saw her and were ASTOUNDED;
they FLED IN TERROR.
6 TREMBLING seized them there,
PAIN like that of a WOMAN IN LABOR.
7 You DESTROYED them like ships of Tarshish
SHATTERED by an east wind.
8 As we have heard, so we have seen
in THE CITY OF THE LORD ALMIGHTY, in the CITY OF OUR GOD:
GOD MAKES HER SECURE FOREVER.
9 WITHIN YOUR TEMPLE, O GOD,
we MEDITATE on YOUR UNFAILING LOVE.
10 Like YOUR NAME, YAHWEH, O GOD,
your PRAISE REACHES to the ENDS OF THE EARTH;
your right hand is filled with RIGHTEOUSNESS.
11 MOUNT ZION REJOICES,
the VILLAGES OF JUDAH are GLAD
because of your JUDGMENTS.
12 WALK ABOUT ZION, GO AROUND HER,
COUNT HER TOWERS,
13 CONSIDER WELL HER RAMPARTS,
VIEW HER CITADELS,
THAT YOU MAY TELL OF THEM
TO THE NEXT GENERATION.
14 FOR THIS GOD IS OUR GOD FOR EVER AND EVER;
HE WILL BE OUR GUIDE EVEN TO THE END.
The Song of Moses
15 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord,
and spoke, saying:
“I will SING TO THE LORD,
For He has TRIUMPHED GLORIOUSLY!
The HORSE and its RIDER
He has THROWN INTO THE SEA!
2 The LORD is my STRENGTH and SONG,
And He has become my SALVATION;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
3 The LORD is a MAN OF WAR;
YAHWEH is HIS NAME.
4 PHARAOH’S CHARIOTS and HIS ARMY HE HAS CAST INTO THE SEA;
His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.
5 The depths have covered them;
They sank to the bottom like a stone.
6 “Your right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power;
Your right hand, O Lord, has DASHED THE ENEMY IN PIECES.
7 And in the greatness of Your excellence
You have OVERTHROWN THOSE WHO ROSE AGAINST YOU;
You sent forth YOUR WRATH;
It CONSUMED them like STUBBLE.
8 And with the BLAST OF YOUR NOSTRILS
The waters were gathered together;
The floods stood upright like a heap;
The depths congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, ‘I will pursue,
I will overtake,
I will divide the spoil;
My desire shall be satisfied on them.
I will draw my sword,
My hand shall destroy them.’
10 You BLEW with Your WIND,
The SEA COVERED THEM;
They SANK like LEAD in the mighty waters.
11 “WHO IS LIKE YOU, O LORD, AMONG THE GODS?
WHO IS LIKE YOU, GLORIOUS IN HOLINESS,
FEARFUL IN PRAISES, DOING WONDERS?
12 You stretched out your right hand;
The EARTH SWALLOWED THEM.
13 You in Your MERCY have led forth
The PEOPLE whom You have REDEEMED;
You have GUIDED THEM in Your strength
To YOUR HOLY HABITATION.
14 “The people will HEAR and be AFRAID;
SORROW will take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Then the chiefs of Edom will be DISMAYED;
The mighty men of Moab,
TREMBLING will take hold of them;
All the inhabitants of Canaan will MELT AWAY.
16 FEAR and DREAD will fall on them;
By the GREATNESS OF YOUR ARM
They will be as still as a STONE,
TILL YOUR PEOPLE PASS OVER,
TILL THE PEOPLE PASS OVER
WHOM YOU HAVE PURCHASED.
17 You will BRING THEM in and PLANT THEM
In the MOUNTAIN OF YOUR INHERITANCE,
In the place, O Lord, which YOU HAVE MADE
For YOUR OWN DWELLING,
THE SANCTUARY, O Lord, which YOUR HANDS HAVE ESTABLISHED.
18 “THE LORD SHALL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER.”
19 For the horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea,
and the Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them.
But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
The Song Of Miriam
20 Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron,
took the TIMBREL in her hand;
and ALL the WOMEN went out after her with TIMBRELS and with DANCES.
21 And Miriam answered them:
“SING TO THE LORD,
For HE HAS TRIUMPHED GLORIOUSLY!
THE HORSE AND ITS RIDER
HE HAS THROWN INTO THE SEA!”
5 The Lord is at your right hand;
he will CRUSH KINGS on the DAY OF HIS WRATH.
6 He will JUDGE THE NATIONS, heaping up the dead
and CRUSHING THE RULERS OF THE WHOLE EARTH.
7 He will drink from a brook along the way,
and so he will lift his head high.
19 Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph;
LET THE NATIONS BE JUDGED in your presence.
20 Strike them with TERROR, Lord;
let the NATIONS know they are only MORTAL.
15 so he will SPRINKLE MANY NATIONS,
and KINGS WILL SHUT THEIR MOUTHS because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.
