NASB — Revelation 10 — KJV

The Angel and the Little Book

1 I saw another astrong angel bcoming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and the crainbow was upon his head, and dhis face was like the sun, and his efeet like pillars of fire; 2 and he had in his hand a alittle book which was open. He placed bhis right foot on the sea and his left on the land; 3 and he cried out with a loud voice, aas when a lion roars; and when he had cried out, the bseven peals of thunder Iuttered their voices. 4 When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, aI was about to write; and I bheard a voice from heaven saying, “cSeal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them.” 5 Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land alifted up his right hand to heaven, 6 aand swore by bHim who lives forever and ever, cWHO CREATED HEAVEN AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE EARTH AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE SEA AND THE THINGS IN IT, that dthere will be delay no longer, 7 but in the days of the voice of the aseventh angel, when he is about to sound, then bthe mystery of God is finished, as He Ipreached to His servants the prophets.

A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.

1 ¶ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow [was] upon his head, and his face [was] as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and [his] left [foot] on the earth, 3 And cried with a loud voice, as [when] a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. 5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
