Revelation 15

1 And I saw in heaven [a] sign great and marvelous, seven angels having the last seven plagues, for in them is completed the anger of God. 2 And I saw [something] like [a] glassy sea mixed with fire, and those having gained victory over the beast and over his image and over the number of his name, standing on the glassy sea, having [the] harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the slave of God and the song of the lamb, saying:
Great and marvelous [are] your works,
O Lord God almighty,
Just and true [are] your ways,
O king of the nations.
4 Who shall not fear [you],
O Lord, and glorify your name.
For [you] only [are] approved,
For all the nations will come and worship before you,
For your just-deeds have been manifested.

5 And after these [things] I looked, and behold the temple of the Tent1 of the witness in heaven was opened, 6 and the seven angels having the seven plagues went out from the temple, clothed with clean shining linen and girded around their breast with living gold. 7 And one of the four zoe-living2 [creatures] gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the anger of the God living to the eons of eons. 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

2from ZOE "ZOH-ay" (ζωη)—Life 'collectively', interdependent, interconnected. Although it means 'life' in the conventional sense (for example: Matt.9:18, Matt.27:63, Luke.2:36, Acts.25:24, Rom.7:2, 2Cor.1:8, 1Thes.4:17, 1Tim.5:10, Rev.19:20), Jesus uses ZOE exclusively of 'life eternal' (with the possible exceptions of Luke.15:13, Luke.16:25). The other N.T. writers use ZOE in both senses—temporal and eternal, generally clear from the context. The Father is the 'zoe-living God' (see Matt.16:16). The Septuagint (LXX) in Gen.2:7 has "...[God] breathed into his nostrils the breath of zoe-life, and the man became a zoe-living psyche-life" (and see 1Cor.15:45); and Gen.3:20 (LXX) "And Adam called his wife's name ZOE, because she was the mother of all zoe-living." Contrast PSYCHE (ψυχη): an individual manifestation of life/consciousness. See John.12:25 where both ZOE and PSYCHE occur. Greek also has the word BIOS (βιoς ) for 'life' in the sense of biological processes.
