v1 Then the *Lamb opened the last (seventh) *lock. And it was completely quiet in *heaven for about half an hour. v2 Then I saw the 7 *angels who stand in front of God. Someone gave them 7 *trumpets.
v3 Another *angel came then. He stood at the special table where people offered gifts to God. He had a gold cup to burn *incense. God gave him a lot of this *incense which makes a nice smell. He offered it to God, with the words that all Godís people prayed. He offered it all on the special gold table that was in front of the *throne. v4 The smoke from the *incense went up in front of God when the *angel offered it. It went up with what Godís people prayed. v5 Then the *angel took the cup and he filled it with fire from the special table. He threw the cup down on to the earth. Then there were loud noises and bright lights, like a very bad storm. And everything on the earth moved.
