1 When the Lamb broke the aseventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw athe seven angels who stand before God, and seven btrumpets were given to them. 3 aAnother angel came and stood at the baltar, holding a cgolden censer; and much dincense was given to him, so that he might add it to the dprayers of all the saints on the egolden altar which was before the throne. 4 And athe smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer and afilled it with the fire of the altar, and bthrew it to the earth; and there followed cpeals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an dearthquake. 6 aAnd the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them. 7 The first sounded, and there came ahail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and ba third of the earth was burned up, and ba third of the ctrees were burned up, and all the green cgrass was burned up. 8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great amountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and ba third of the csea became blood, 9 and aa third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the bships were destroyed. 10 The third angel sounded, and a great star afell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a bthird of the rivers and on the csprings of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a athird of the waters became bwormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 The fourth angel sounded, and a athird of the bsun and a third of the bmoon and a athird of the bstars were struck, so that a athird of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a athird of it, and the night in the same way. 13 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in amidheaven, saying with a loud voice, "bWoe, woe, woe to cthose who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the dthree angels who are about to sound!"
