Revelation 8

1 And when he opened the seventh seal, silence came to pass in heaven for [about] [an] half-hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 And another angel came and stood upon the altar having [a] golden censer, and to him was given much incense, in order that he give [it] with the prayer of all the holy [ones] upon the golden altar before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense with the prayer of the holy [ones] went up before God out of the hand of the angel, 5 and the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw [it] upon the land, and there came to pass thunders and sounds and lightnings and [an] earthquake. 6 And the seven angels having the seven trumpets trumpets prepared themselves to trumpet. 7 And the first trumpeted, and there came to pass hail and fire mingled with blood and they were thrown upon the land, and a third of the trees were burnt-up, and every green grass was burnt-up. 8 And the second angel trumpeted, and as [it were a] great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and killed a third of the creatures in the sea, those having psyche-lives1 , and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel trumpeted, and there fell from heaven [a] great star burning as [a] lamp, and it fell upon a third of the rivers and upon the wells of water. 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel trumpeted, and a third of the sun was smitten, and a third of the moon and a third of the stars, in order that a third of them be darkened, and the day did not shine a third of it, and the night likewise. 13 And I saw, and I heard one of the eagles flying in the mid-heaven saying with [a] loud voice: Woe, woe, woe [to] those dwelling upon the land because of the rest of the voices of the trumpets of the three angels [about] to be trumpeting.
