1. The seuenth seal being opened, there appeare Angels with trompets: 6. and when an other
Angel powred out fire taken from the altar, vpon the earth, there follow diuers tempestes. 7.
In like manner, whiles foure Angels of the seuen sound their trompets, there fal sundrie plagues.
1. AND when he had opened the seuenth seal, there was made silence in heauen, as it were half an houre.
2. And I saw seuen Angels standing in the sight of God: and there were giuen to them seuen trompets.
3. And another Angel came and stood before the altar, hauing a golden censar: and there were giuen to him many incenses that he should giue of the praiers of al Saints vpon the altar of gold, which is before the throne of God.
4. And the smoke of the incenses of the praiers of the Saints ascended from the hand of the Angel before God.
5. And the Angel tooke the censar, & filled it of the fire of the altar, and cast it on the great earth-quake.
6. And the seuen Angels which had the seuen trompets, prepared themselues to sound with the trompet.
7. And the first Angel sounded with the trompet, and there was made haile and fire, mingled in bloud, and it was cast on the earth, and the third part of the earth was burnt, & the third part of trees was burnt, and al green graffe was burnt.
8. And the second Angel sounded with the trumpet: and as it were a great mountaine burning with fire, was cast into the sea, & the third part of the sea was made bloud:
9. and the third part of those creatures died, which had liues in the sea, and the third part of the ships perished.
10. And the third Angel sounded with the trompet, and a great starre fel from heauen, burning as it were a torch, and it fel on the third part of the flouds, and on the fountaines of waters:
11. and the name of the starre is called worme-wood. And the third part of the waters was made into worme-wood: and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12. And the fourth Angel sounded with the trumpet, and the third part of the sunne was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the starres, so that the third part of them darkned, and of the day there shined not the third part, and of the night in like manner,
13. And I looked, and heard the voice of one egle flying through the middes of heauen, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabiters on the earth: because of the rest of the voices of the three Angels which were to sound with the trompet.
