Revelation 8:2-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 And I saw the seven angels1 who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.2 3 Another angel,3 who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints,4 on the golden altar5 before the throne. 4 The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God6 from the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar,7 and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder,8 rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.9

The Trumpets

6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets10 prepared to sound them. 7 The first angel11 sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire12 mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third13 of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.14 8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain,15 all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third16 of the sea turned into blood,17 9 a third18 of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky19 on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water20-- 11 the name of the star is Wormwood.a A third21 of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.22 12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third23 of them turned dark.24 A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.25 13 As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair26 call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe27 to the inhabitants of the earth,28 because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!"
