Knijga O Kristu

Otkrivenje 15

Mojsijeva i Jaganjčeva pjesma

1Ugledam zatim na nebu još velikih i čudesnih znakova. Sedam je anđela držalo sedam posljednjih zala kojima se navršuje Božji gnjev.

Preda mnom je bilo nešto poput mora od prozirca, pomiješano s ognjem. Na njemu su stajali oni koji su pobijedili Zvijer i njezin kip i broj njezina imena, s Božjim citrama u ruci.

Svi su pjevali pjesmu Božjega sluge Mojsija i Jaganjca:
    'Velika su i čudesna tvoja djela,
            Gospodine Bože Svemogući!
    Tvoji su putovi pravedni i istiniti,
            Kralju naroda!
    Tko da se tebe ne boji, Gospodine,
            tko da ne proslavlja tvoje ime?
    Jer ti si jedini svet.
    Svi će narodi doći
            i tebi se pokloniti
            jer su se očitovala tvoja pravedna djela.'

Sedam čaša Božjega gnjeva

Opazim zatim da je otvoren hram u nebu, Šator Božjega svjedočanstva.

Sedam anđela sa sedam zala iziđe iz hrama. Bili su odjeveni u blistavobijeli lan, sa zlatnim pojasima oko prsiju.

Jedno od četiriju bića pruži sedmorici anđela zlatne posude pune gnjeva Boga koji živi u vijeke vjekova.

Hram se napuni dimom Božje slave i njegove snage, tako da nitko nije mogao ući u njega dok se ne dovrši sedam zala sedmorice anđela.

The Message

Revelation 15

The Song of Moses, the Song of the Lamb

1I saw another Sign in Heaven, huge and breathtaking: seven Angels with seven disasters. These are the final disasters, the wrap-up of God’s wrath.

2-4 I saw something like a sea made of glass, the glass all shot through with fire. Carrying harps of God, triumphant over the Beast, its image, and the number of its name, the saved ones stood on the sea of glass. They sang the Song of Moses, servant of God; they sang the Song of the Lamb:

Mighty your acts and marvelous,
    O God, the Sovereign-Strong!
Righteous your ways and true,
    King of the nations!
Who can fail to fear you, God,
    give glory to your Name?
Because you and you only are holy,
    all nations will come and worship you,
    because they see your judgments are right.

5-8 Then I saw the doors of the Temple, the Tent of Witness in Heaven, open wide. The Seven Angels carrying the seven disasters came out of the Temple. They were dressed in clean, bright linen and wore gold vests. One of the Four Animals handed the Seven Angels seven gold bowls, brimming with the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. Smoke from God’s glory and power poured out of the Temple. No one was permitted to enter the Temple until the seven disasters of the Seven Angels were finished.
