Revelation 10:9-10

Context
10:9 So 1  I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He 2  said to me, “Take the scroll 3  and eat it. It 4  will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.” 10:10 So 5  I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it, and it did taste 6  as sweet as honey in my mouth, but 7  when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.
