Revelation of John 8

The Seventh Seal— the Trumpets

1When the Lamb broke the a  seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2And I saw b  the seven angels who stand before God, and seven c  trumpets were given to them.

3 d  Another angel came and stood at the e  altar, holding a f  golden censer; and much g  incense was given to him, so that he might
Lit give
add it to the i  prayers of all the
Or holy ones
saints on the k  golden altar which was before the throne.
4And l  the smoke of the incense,
Or for
with the prayers of the
V 3, note 2
saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.
5Then the angel
Lit has taken
took the censer and p  filled it with the fire of the altar, and q  threw it to the earth; and there followed r  peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an s  earthquake.

6 t  And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them.

7The first sounded, and there came u  hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and v  a third of the earth was burned up, and w  a third of the x  trees were burned up, and all the green y  grass was burned up.

8The second angel sounded, and something like a great z  mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and aa  a third of the ab  sea became blood, 9and ac  a third of the creatures which were in the sea
Lit the ones having
and had life, died; and a third of the ae  ships were destroyed.

10The third angel sounded, and a great star af  fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a ag  third of the rivers and on the ah  springs of waters. 11The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a ai  third of the waters became aj  wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

12The fourth angel sounded, and a ak  third of the al  sun and a third of the am  moon and a an  third of the ao  stars were struck, so that a ap  third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a aq  third of it, and the night in the same way.

13Then I looked, and I heard
Lit one eagle
an eagle flying in as  midheaven, saying with a loud voice at  Woe, woe, woe to au  those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the av  three angels who are about to sound!”
