1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and seven trumpets were given to them.
3 And another angel came, and stood before the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he might present it with the prayers of all the saints, upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the perfumes went up, with the prayers of the saints, from the hand of the angel, before God.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it upon the earth; and there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound.
7 And the first sounded; and there hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast down upon the earth; and a third part of the trees was burnt up, and all the herbage was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded; and it was as if a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea;
9 and a third part of the creatures which had life in the sea, died; and a third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded; and there fell from heaven a great star, blazing like a torch; and fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters:
11 and the name of the star was called Wormwood, and a third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were become bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded; and the 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 was darkened, and the day was obscured for a third part, and the night also.
13 And I beheld, and heard one of the angels flying in the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to those who dwell upon the earth, for the remaining sounds of the trumpets of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
