Chapter 8Revelation of John

8

1 And when he opened the seventh :seal, silence was in the heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels that stand before :God; and seven trumpets were given them. 3 And another angel came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer; and much †incense was given him that he should †add it to the prayers of all the saints upon the golden :altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense for the prayers of the saints went up before :God out of the angel’s hand. 5 And the angel took the censer; and filled it from the fire of the altar, and cast it unto the earth: and thunders came, and voices, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 6 And the seven angels that had the seven trumps prepared themselves to trump.
 
7 And the first trumped, and there was hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast unto the earth: and the third of the earth was burnt up, and the third of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8 And the second angel trumped, and as if a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third of the sea became blood; 9 and the third of the creatures which were in the sea died, they that had †souls; and the third of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel trumped, and a great star fell from the heaven, burning as a torch, and fell upon the third of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters; 11 and the name of the star is called :Wormwood: and the third of the waters became wormwood; and many :men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel trumped, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third of the moon, and the third of the stars; that the third of them should be darkened, and the day should not shine for the third of it, and the night likewise.
 
13 And I saw, and I heard one eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a great voice, Woe, woe, woe, for the earth-dweller by reason of the remaining voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to trump.
