New American Standard Version of the BibleAnd I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head, and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Put in your sickle and reap, because the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe." 16And He who sat on the cloud swung (or cast) His sickle over the earth; and the earth was reaped. 17And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18And another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Put in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe." 19And the angel swung his sickle to the earth, and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses' bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles.

Easy-to-Read Version of the BibleI looked and there before me was a white cloud. Sitting on the white cloud was One that looked like a Son of Man. He had a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15Then another angel came out of the temple. This angel called to the One who was sitting on the cloud, "Take your sickle and gather [from the earth]. The time to harvest has come. The fruit of the earth is ripe."  16So the One that was sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth. And the earth was harvested. 17Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven. This angel also had a sharp sickle.  18And then another angel came from the altar. This angel has power over the fire. This angel called to the angel with the sharp sickle. He said, "Take your sharp sickle and gather the bunches of grapes from the earth's vine. The earth's grapes are ripe." 19The angel swung his sickle over the earth. The angel gathered the earth's grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's anger. 20The grapes were squeezed in the winepress outside the city. Blood flowed out of the winepress. It rose as high as the heads of the horses for a distance of 200 miles. (ERV)
