2a  Et vidi alterum Angelum ascendentem ab ortu solis, atque clamantem:
3  nolite nocere terrae et mari, neque arboribus quo ad usque signemus servos Dei
in frontibus eorum.
4a  et audivi vocem, signatorum dicentium,
12  Amen: Benedictio, claritas, sapientia et gratiarum… actio Deo nostro in saecula seculorum.

2a  And I saw another angel ascending from the east, and crying:
3  Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God
on their foreheads.
4a  And I heard the voice of them which were sealed, saying:
12  Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving… be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
