The Seventh Seal

8When the Lamb broke open the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.G2532G3753G455G1442G4973G1096G4602G1722G3772G5613G2256 2Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and they were given seven trumpets.G2532G1492G2033G32G3739G2476G1799G2316G2532G846G1325G2033G4536 3Another angel, who had a gold incense container, came and stood at the altar. He was given a lot of incense to add to the prayers of all God's people and to offer it on the gold altar that stands before the throne.G2532G243G32G2064G2532G2476G1909G2379G2192G5552G3031G2532G1325G846G4183G2368G2443G1325G4335G3956G40G1909G5552G2379G3588G1799G2362 4The smoke of the burning incense went up with the prayers of God's people from the hands of the angel standing before God.G2532G2586G2368G4335G40G305G1799G2316G1537G32G5495 5Then the angel took the incense container, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it on the earth. There were rumblings and peals of thunder, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.G2532G32G2983G3031G2532G1072G846G1537G4442G2379G2532G906G1519G1093G2532G1096G5456G2532G1027G2532G796G2532G4578

The Trumpets

6Then the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.G2532G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G4536G2090G1438G2443G4537 7The first angel blew his trumpet. Hail and fire, mixed with blood, came pouring down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees, and every blade of green grass.G2532G4413G32G4537G2532G1096G5464G2532G4442G3396G129G2532G906G1519G1093G2532G5154G1186G2618G2532G3956G5515G5528G2618 8Then the second angel blew his trumpet. Something that looked like a huge mountain on fire was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea was turned into blood,G2532G1208G32G4537G2532G5613G3173G3735G2545G4442G906G1519G2281G2532G5154G2281G1096G129 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.G2532G5154G2938G3588G1722G2281G2192G5590G599G2532G5154G4143G1311 10Then the third angel blew his trumpet. A large star, burning like a torch, dropped from the sky and fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.G2532G5154G32G4537G2532G4098G3173G792G1537G3772G2545G5613G2985G2532G4098G1909G5154G4215G2532G1909G4077G5204 11(The name of the star is "Bitterness.") A third of the water turned bitter, and many people died from drinking the water, because it had turned bitter.G2532G3686G792G3004G894G2532G5154G5204G1096G1519G894G2532G4183G444G599G1537G5204G3754G4087 12Then the fourth angel blew his trumpet. A third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that their light lost a third of its brightness; there was no light during a third of the day and a third of the night also.G2532G5067G32G4537G2532G5154G2246G4141G2532G5154G4582G2532G5154G792G2443G5154G846G4654G2532G2250G5316G3361G5154G846G2532G3571G3668 13Then I looked, and I heard an eagle that was flying high in the air say in a loud voice, "O horror! horror! How horrible it will be for all who live on earth when the sound comes from the trumpets that the other three angels must blow!"G2532G1492G2532G191G1520G32G4072G1722G3321G3004G3173G5456G3759G3759G3759G2730G1909G1093G1537G3062G5456G4536G5140G32G3588G3195G4537
