And I saw the seven angels1 who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.23
Another angel,3 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,4 on the golden altar5 before the throne.
The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God6 from the angel's hand.
Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar,7 and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder,8 rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.9
