And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.
The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short."
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth--to every nation, tribe, language and people.
