Revelation 8:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 Another angel,1 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,2 on the golden altar3 before the throne. 4 The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God4 from the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar,5 and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder,6 rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.7

The Trumpets

6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets8 prepared to sound them. 7 The first angel9 sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire10 mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third11 of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.12 8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain,13 all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third14 of the sea turned into blood,15 9 a third16 of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky17 on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water18-- 11 the name of the star is Wormwood.a A third19 of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.20 12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third21 of them turned dark.22 A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.23 13 As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair24 call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe25 to the inhabitants of the earth,26 because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!"
