2 Then 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 Another angel, who had a gold incense container, came and stood at the altar. He was given a lot of incense to add to the prayers of all God's people and to offer it on the gold altar that stands 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 burning incense went up with the prayers of God's people from the hands of the angel standing before God. 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 took the incense container, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it on the earth. There were rumblings and peals of thunder, flashes of lightning, and an 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.
