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.

Revelation 15

Seven Angels With Seven Plagues

1I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed. And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:

“Great and marvelous are your deeds,
    Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
    King of the nations.[a]
Who will not fear you, Lord,
    and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
    and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.”[b]

After this I looked, and I saw in heaven the temple—that is, the tabernacle of the covenant law—and it was opened. Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and wore golden sashes around their chests. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
