2 Then I saw the seven angels who stand in the presence of God; seven trumpets were given to them.
3 Another angel, with a gold incense burner, came and stood at the altar. He was given a large amount of incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the gold altar in front of the throne.
4 The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up in the presence of God from the angel's hand.
5 The angel took the incense burner, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; there were thunders, rumblings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
