  1. Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire.
  2. …And he set his right foot on the sea, and his left foot on the land,
  3. and called out with a loud voice, like a lion roaring.
