Not to mention the dire sanctions against derivative works of the

plagues that are written in this book:
  19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the
holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

this is clearly non-free material. Can we please
- remove those parts from the distribution
- send somebody to ask upstream to fix this license?

No.  This is an old text, so it is no (more) copyrightable.
Any restriction is (legally) void... PLONG!!
