Revelation Chapter 8

Rev 8:1 When He had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in the heavens about a half hour.

Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

Rev 8:3 Another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incenses, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.

Rev 8:4 For the smoke of the incenses, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the hand of the angel.

Rev 8:5 And the angel took the censer, and loaded it with fire from the altar, and hurled it into the land; and there were voices, and thundering, and lightning, and an earthquake.

Rev 8:6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves for trumpeting.

Rev 8:7 The first angel trumpeted, and there came hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were hurled on the land; and the third part of the land was burnt up, a third of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Rev 8:8 And the second angel trumpeted, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was hurled into the sea; and the third part of the sea became blood;

Rev 8:9 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.

Rev 8:10 Then the third angel trumpeted, and there fell a great star from the heavens, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and on the fountains of waters;

Rev 8:11 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.

Rev 8:12 And the fourth angel trumpeted, 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.

Rev 8:13 So I beheld, and heard an eagle flying through the mid-heavens, saying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe, to those that dwell upon the land because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the other three angels, which are about to be trumpeting!
