New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence throughout heaven for about half an hour. 1 When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and they were given seven trumpets. 2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 Then another angel with a gold incense burner came and stood at the altar. And a great quantity of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God's people, to be offered on the gold altar before the throne. 3 Another angel, 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, on the golden altar before the throne.
4 The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of the saints, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out. 4 The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel's hand.
5 Then the angel filled the incense burner with fire from the altar and threw it down upon the earth; and thunder crashed, lightning flashed, and there was a terrible earthquake. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
6 Then the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow their mighty blasts. 6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.
