1 And when He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer. And many incenses were given to him, so that he should offer [it] with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense [which came] with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God from the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast [it] into the earth. And voices and thunderings and lightnings and an earthquake occurred.
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 mixed with blood, and they were cast on the earth. And the third [part] of trees was burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
8 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.
9 And the third [part] of the creatures in the sea, those having souls, died; and the third [part] of the ships was destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and a great star burning like a lamp fell from the heaven, and it fell on the third [part] of the rivers and on the fountains of waters.
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood, and a third [part] of the waters became wormwood. And many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third [part] of the sun was stricken, 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 did not appear for a third [part] of it, and the night also.
13 And I saw and I heard one angel flying in mid-heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, from the rest of the voices of the trumpet of the three angels being about to sound!
