jAnd the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.


And the angel took the censer, kand filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it 2into the earth: land there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.


And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.


The first angel sounded, and there followed mhail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: nand the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.


And the second angel sounded, oand as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;


And pthe third part of the *creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.


And the third angel sounded, and there qfell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rrivers, and upon the fountains of waters;


And the name of the star is called sWormwood: and the third part of the waters became *wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.


And the fourth angel sounded, tand the third part of uthe 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.


And I beheld, and heard van angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, wWoe, 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!
