1 When a He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 b And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, c and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with d the prayers of all the saints upon e the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And f the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And g there were noises, thunderings, h lightnings, i and an earthquake.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
