8 And again, I heard a voice from heaven speaking with me and saying: 'Go and receive the open book from the hand of the Angel who stands upon the sea and upon the land.'
9 And I went to the Angel, saying to him that he should give the book to me. And he said to me: 'Receive the book and consume it. And it shall cause bitterness in your stomach, but in your mouth it shall be sweet like honey.'
10 And I received the book from the hand of the Angel, and I consumed it. And it was sweet like honey in my mouth. And when I had consumed it, my stomach was made bitter.
11 And he said to me, 'It is necessary for you to prophesy again about many nations and peoples and languages and kings.'
