And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2 aAnd I saw the seven angels which stood before God; band to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another cangel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much dincense, that he should offer it with ethe prayers of all saints upon fthe golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And gthe smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and ithere were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, hand an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, jand there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast kupon the earth: and the third part lof trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt 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 mbecame blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: nand the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 oAnd 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 as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 13 And I beheld, pand heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, qWoe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
