Revelation of John 8

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven, for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels, who stood before God; and to them were given, seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood by the altar; and he held a golden censer: and much incense was given him, so that he might offer, with the prayers of all the saints, upon the golden altar before the throne. And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints went up before God from the hand of the angel. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it upon the earth: and there were thunders, and lightnings, and voices, and an earthquake. And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound. And the first sounded; and there was hail, and fire, which were mingled with water: and these were thrown upon the earth; and a third part of the earth was burned up, and a third part of the trees were burned, and all green grass was burned. And the second angel sounded, and, as it were a great mountain burning with fire, was cast into the sea; and also a third part of the sea became blood. And a third part of all the creatures in the sea, that had life, died; and a third part of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell from heaven a star, burning like a lamp; and it fell upon a third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of water. 11 And the name of the star was called Wormwood; and a third part of the waters became wormwood; and many persons died from the waters, because they were bitter. 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and a third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so that the third part of them were dark, and they became dark; and the day did not give light for the third part of it, and the night in like manner. 13 And I saw and heard an eagle, which flew in the midst, and it had a tail of blood,
The Greek word is, . . . . . . . . . . ., in mid heaven; compounded of . . . . ., middle, and . . . . . . ., heaven. But the Syriac translator supposed it to be a compound of . . . . middle, . . . tail, and . . . . blood; and he rendered it accordingly.
while it said, with a loud voice: Woe, woe, to them who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining sounds of the trumpets of the three angels, who are to sound.
