The Seventh Seal--the Trumpets

1 When the Lamb broke the 1seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw 2the seven angels who stand before God, and seven 3trumpets were given to them. 3 4Another angel came and stood at the 5altar, holding a 6golden censer; and much 7incense was given to him, so that he might aadd it to the 8prayers of all the bsaints on the 9golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And 10the smoke of the incense, cwith the prayers of the dsaints, went up before God out of the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel etook the censer and 11filled it with the fire of the altar, and 12threw it to the earth; and there followed 13peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an 14earthquake. 6 15And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them. 7 The first sounded, and there came 16hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and 17a third of the earth was burned up, and 18a third of the 19trees were burned up, and all the green 20grass was burned up. 8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great 21mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and 22a third of the 23sea became blood, 9 and 24a third of the creatures which were in the sea fand had life, died; and a third of the 25ships were destroyed. 10 The third angel sounded, and a great star 26fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a 27third of the rivers and on the 28springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a 29third of the waters became 30wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 The fourth angel sounded, and a 31third of the 32sun and a third of the 33moon and a 34third of the 35stars were struck, so that a 36third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a 37third of it, and the night in the same way. 13 Then I looked, and I heard gan eagle flying in 38midheaven, saying with a loud voice, "39Woe, woe, woe to 40those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the 41three angels who are about to sound!"
