Week 33 of the Year, Cycle II, Friday
I took the book and swallowed it.
I, John, heard the voice I had heard from heaven speaking to me again. “Go,” it said “and take that open scroll out of the hand of the angel standing on sea and land.” I went to the angel and asked him to give me the small scroll, and he said, “Take it and eat it; it will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will taste as sweet as honey.” So I took it out of the angel’s hand, and swallowed it; it was as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach turned sour. Then I was told, “You are to prophesy again, this time about many different nations and countries and languages and emperors.”
V. The word of the Lord. R. Thanks be to God.
