启示录 8

揭开第七印

1羔羊揭开第七印时,天上寂静无声,约半小时。 然后,我看见站在上帝面前的七位天使领受了七支号角。

另一位天使手里拿着金香炉上前来,站在祭坛旁边。他接过了许多香,把香和众圣徒的祈祷一起献在宝座前的金坛上。 这香发出的烟,连同众圣徒的祷告从那天使的手中向上升,直达上帝面前。 天使又拿着香炉,盛满祭坛的火,将它倒在地上,于是有雷鸣、巨响、闪电和地震。

天使吹号

这时,那七位拿着号角的天使也预备要吹号。

第一位天使吹响号角的时候,冰雹和火搀杂着血从天上倾盆而下。地的三分之一、树木的三分之一和一切的青草都被烧毁了。

第二位天使吹号的时候,一座好像燃烧的大山被丢进海里。海洋的三分之一变成了血, 海中的活物死了三分之一,船只也被毁了三分之一。

10 第三位天使吹号的时候,有一颗好像火炬般燃烧着的巨星从天上坠落在三分之一的江河溪流和水泉里。 11 这颗星名叫“苦艾”,它使三分之一的水都变苦了,许多人因为喝了这种苦水而死去。

12 第四位天使吹号的时候,太阳、月亮和星辰的三分之一都受到重击,以致失去了光辉,于是日间的三分之一暗淡无光,夜间也是如此。 13 我又看见有一只鹰在半空中飞翔,听见它大声宣告:“有祸了!有祸了!世上的居民有祸了!还有三位天使要吹响号角。”

Revelation 8

The Lamb Breaks the Seventh Seal

1When the Lamb broke the seventh seal on the scroll,[a] there was silence throughout heaven for about half an hour. I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and they were given seven trumpets.

Then another angel with a gold incense burner came and stood at the altar. And a great amount of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people as an offering on the gold altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of God’s holy people, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out. Then the angel filled the incense burner with fire from the altar and threw it down upon the earth; and thunder crashed, lightning flashed, and there was a terrible earthquake.

The First Four Trumpets

Then the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow their mighty blasts.

The first angel blew his trumpet, and hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown down on the earth. One-third of the earth was set on fire, one-third of the trees were burned, and all the green grass was burned.

Then the second angel blew his trumpet, and a great mountain of fire was thrown into the sea. One-third of the water in the sea became blood, one-third of all things living in the sea died, and one-third of all the ships on the sea were destroyed.

10 Then the third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch. It fell on one-third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star was Bitterness.[b] It made one-third of the water bitter, and many people died from drinking the bitter water.

12 Then the fourth angel blew his trumpet, and one-third of the sun was struck, and one-third of the moon, and one-third of the stars, and they became dark. And one-third of the day was dark, and also one-third of the night.

13 Then I looked, and I heard a single eagle crying loudly as it flew through the air, “Terror, terror, terror to all who belong to this world because of what will happen when the last three angels blow their trumpets.”
