Hitgalut 16 – התגלות טז


1And I heard a great voice saying to the seven Malakhim, “Go your ways and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of Elohim upon the earth.”  2And the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth; and there came a severe and malignant sore upon the men who had the mark of the beast and upon those who worshipped his image.  3Then the second Malakh poured out his bowl upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man, and every living soul died in the sea.  4And the third Malakh poured out his bowl upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.  5Then I heard the Malakh who has charge over waters say, “You are a Tzadik, O Kadosh One, who is, and was, because You have condemned them.  6For they have shed the blood of the K’doshim and Nevi’im, and You have given them blood to drink; for they deserve it.”  7And I heard another out of the Mizbe’akh say, “Yes, O  יהוה  Elohim Okhez HaKol, true and righteous are Your judgments.”

8And the fourth Malakh poured out his bowl upon the sun; and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.  9And men were scorched by intense heat, and they blasphemed the Name of Elohim, who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent to give Him glory.  10And the fifth Malakh poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast of prey; and his kingdom was darkened; and men gnawed their tongues from pain 11and blasphemed the Elohim of heaven because of their wounds and sores, and did not repent of their deeds.

12Then the sixth Malakh poured out his bowl upon the great river Perat; and its waters dried up, that the way of the king of the East might be prepared.  13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out  of  the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast of prey, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  14For they are the demon spirits, who work miracles which go forth to the kings of the whole world, to gather them to the battle on HaYom HaGadol of the Okhez HaKol.  15“And behold, I come as a thief.  Blessed is he who watches and keeps his garments, lest he must walk naked and they see his shame.”  16And he gathered them together in a place which in Ivrit is called ‘Har Megidon’.

17Then the seventh Malakh poured out his bowl into the air; and there came a great voice out of the Heikhal from the throne, saying, “It is done.”  18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, the like of which had never happened since man was upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.  19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell; and great Bavel came in remembrance before Elohim, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.  20And every island fled away, and the mountains could not be found.  21And great hail, about the size of a talent, fell out of heaven upon men; and men blasphemed Elohim because of the plague of the hail; for the destructive force of the hail was exceedingly great.
