King James VersionRevelation8


1 And when he had opened the sev­enth seal, there was si­lence in heav­en about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the sev­en an­gels which stood be­fore God; and to them were giv­en sev­en trum­pets. 3 And an­oth­er an­gel came and stood at the al­tar, hav­ing a gold­en censer; and there was giv­en unto him much in­cense, that he should of­fer it with the prayers of all saints upon the gold­en al­tar which was be­fore the throne. 4 And the 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 there were voic­es, and thun­der­ings, and light­nings, and an earth­quake. 6 And the sev­en an­gels which had the sev­en trum­pets pre­pared them­selves to sound. 7 The first an­gel sound­ed, and there fol­lowed hail and fire min­gled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of 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 be­came 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: and the third part of the wa­ters be­came worm­wood; and many men died of the wa­ters, be­cause they were made bit­ter. 12 And 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, and heard an an­gel fly­ing through the midst of heav­en, say­ing with a loud voice, Woe, 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!
