The first angel1 sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire2 mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third3 of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.48
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain,5 all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third6 of the sea turned into blood,79
a third8 of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky9 on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water10--
the name of the star is Wormwood.a A third11 of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.1212
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 third13 of them turned dark.14 A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.1513
As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair16 call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe17 to the inhabitants of the earth,18 because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!"
