1 And when he opened the seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven, about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given them.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer, and a great quantity of incense was given him to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar, which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose up from the hand of the angel into the presence of God.
5 Then the angel took the censer, and he filled it with fire from the altar, and poured it upon the earth; and there followed thunders and voices and lightnings and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow their trumpets.
7 And the first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and it fell upon the earth; and the third part of the earth was burned up, and the third part of the trees, and all the green grass.
8 And the second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was hurled into the sea; and a third part of the sea became blood;
9 and a third part of the living creatures in the sea died, and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel blew his trumpet, and there fell from heaven a great star, blazing like a torch. It fell upon a third of the rivers and upon the springs. (The name of the star is called Wormwood.)
11 A third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel blew his trumpet, and the third part of the sun was blasted, and a third part of the moon, and a third part of the stars; so that the third part of them should be darkened, and for a third part of the day there was no light, and at night it was the same.
13 And I looked and I heard a solitary eagle flying in mid-heaven, and crying with a loud voice, "Woe, woe, woe for all who live on the earth, Because of the rest of the trumpet-blasts That the three angels are about to blow!"
