8 And when he+ opened the seventh seal,+ a silence occurred in heaven for about a half hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels+ that stand before God, and seven trumpets were given them. 3 And another angel arrived and stood at the altar,+ having a golden incense vessel; and a large quantity of incense+ was given him to offer it with the prayers of all the holy ones upon the golden altar that was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense ascended from the hand of the angel with the prayers+ of the holy ones before God. 5 But right away the angel took the incense vessel, and he filled it with some of the fire+ of the altar and hurled it to the earth.+ And thunders+ occurred and voices and lightnings+ and an earthquake.+ 6 And the seven angels with the seven+ trumpets+ prepared to blow them. 7 And the first one blew his trumpet. And there occurred a hail and fire+ mingled with blood, and it was hurled to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned+ up, and a third of the trees was burned up, and all the green vegetation+ was burned up. 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 of the sea became blood;+ 9 and a third of the creatures that are in the sea which have souls* died,+ and a third of the boats were wrecked. 10 And the third angel blew his trumpet. And a great star burning as a lamp fell from heaven,+ and it fell upon a third of the rivers and upon the fountains of waters.+ 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood.* And a third of the waters turned into wormwood, and many of the men* died from the waters, because these had been made bitter.+ 12 And the fourth angel blew his trumpet. 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 might be darkened+ and the day might not have illumination for a third+ of it, and the night likewise. 13 And I saw, and I heard an eagle+ flying in midheaven*+ say with a loud voice: “Woe, woe, woe+ to those dwelling on the earth because of the rest of the trumpet blasts of the three angels who are about to blow their trumpets!”+
