Revelation 8
Godbey New Testament Par ▾ 

The Seventh Seal

1And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about half an hour. 2And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and seven trumpets were given unto them.

3And another angel came and stood before the altar, having a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, that he shall offer with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which is before the throne. 4And the smoke of the incense went up out of the hand of the angel, with the prayers of the saints, before God. 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it to the earth: and there were thunders, and voices, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

The First Four Trumpets

6And the seven angels, those having the seven trumpets, prepared themselves that they should sound.

7And the first sounded, and there were hail and fire mingled with blood, and cast to the earth: and the third of the earth was burnt up, and the third of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9and the third of the creatures which were in the sea, those having life, died; and the third part of the ships was destroyed.

10And the third angel sounded; and a great star, burning like a lamp, fell from the heaven, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters. 11And the name of the star is called Apsinth. And the third part of the waters became apsinth; and many of the men died from the waters, because they were bitter.

12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars, were smitten; and the third part of them was darkened, and the day did not shine the third part of it, and likewise the night.

13And I saw, and I heard one eagle flying in the midst of heaven, saying with a great voice; Woe, woe, woe, to those dwelling upon the earth, on account of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are about to sound.
