Revelation 8
Smith's Literal Translation 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 to them.

3And another angel came and was placed by the altar, having a golden censer; and many perfumes were given him, that he might give to the prayers of the holy upon the golden altar before the throne. 4And the smoke of the perfumes went up, with the prayers of the holy, from the angel's hand before God. 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it from the fire of the altar, and cast into the earth: and there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

The First Four Trumpets

6And the seven angels having the seven trumpets prepared themselves that they might sound the trumpets.

7And the first angel sounded the trumpet, and there were hail and fire mingled with blood, and it was cast into the earth: and a third of the trees were burned down, and all green grass was burned down.

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

10And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, burning as a torch, and it fell upon a third of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third of the waters is into wormwood; and many of men died of the waters, for they were rendered bitter.

12And the fourth angel sounded the trumpet, and the third of the sun was stricken, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars; that a third of them might be darkened, and the day shone not, a third of it, and the night likewise.

13And I saw, and heard one angel flying in the midst of heaven, saying with a great voice, Woe, woe, woe, to them dwelling upon earth from the rest of the voices of the trumpet of the three angels, about to sound the trumpet!
