Revelation Chapter 8

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 8

1-5 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he could offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the blessings of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire from the altar, and cast it to the earth: and there were noises, thunderings, lightning, and an earthquake.

6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 The first angel sounded: And there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast to the earth. And the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

8-9 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood, and the third part of the living creatures which were in the sea died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10-11 And the third angel sounded: There fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were like a torch, and it fell on the third of the rivers, and on the fountains of water, and the name of the star is called Wormwood. The third part of the waters became wormwood, and many died from the water because it was made bitter.

12 And the fourth angel sounded, and a third part of the sun was struck, and a third part of the moon, and a third part of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened, and a third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

13 And I beheld and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe. Woe. Woe to the earth's inhabitants because other blasts from the trumpets of the three angels' are soon to sound.
