Revelation 15:6-8 New English Translation (NET Bible)

and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, dressed in clean bright linen, wearing wide golden belts[a] around their chests. Then[b] one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath[c] of God who lives forever and ever, and the temple was filled with smoke from God’s glory and from his power. Thus[d] no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues from the seven angels were completed.


  1. Revelation 15:6 tn Or “wide golden sashes,” but these would not be diagonal, as some modern sashes are, but horizontal. The Greek term can refer to a wide band of cloth or leather worn on the outside of one’s clothing (L&N 6.178).
  2. Revelation 15:7 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the vision.
  3. Revelation 15:7 tn Or “anger.”
  4. Revelation 15:8 tn Grk “power, and no one.” A new sentence was started here in the translation. Here καί (kai) has been translated as “thus” to indicate the implied result of the temple being filled with smoke.
