Revelation 8:1-13

And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven [for] about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

And the smoke of the incense went up before God with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel. And the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire from the altar and threw [it] to the earth, and there were thunders and sounds and lightnings and an earthquake. And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves in order to blow them. And the first blew the trumpet, and there was hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was thrown to the earth, and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. And the second angel blew the trumpet, and [something] like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures in the sea--the ones which had life--died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. And the third angel blew the trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. And the name of the star was called Wormwood, and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the waters because they were made bitter.

And out of the smoke locusts came to the earth, and power was given to them like the scorpions of the earth have power. read more.
And it was told to them that they should not damage the grass of the earth or any green [plant] or any tree, except those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And it was granted to them that they should not kill them, but that they would be tormented five months, and their torment [is] like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a person. And in those days people will seek death and will never find it, and they will long to die, and death will flee from them. And the appearance of the locusts [was] like horses prepared for battle, and on their heads [were something] like crowns similar in appearance to gold, and their faces [were] like men's faces, and they had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like [the teeth] of lions, and they had breastplates like iron breastplates, and the sound of their wings [was] like the sound of many {horse-drawn chariots} running into battle. And they have tails similar in appearance to scorpions, and stings, and their power to injure people [for] five months [is] in their tails. They have [as] king over them the angel of the abyss, {whose name} in Hebrew [is] Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon. The first woe has passed. Behold, two woes are still coming after these [things]. And the sixth angel blew the trumpet, and I heard one voice from the horns of the golden altar [that is] before God saying to the sixth angel, the one who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who have been bound at the great river Euphrates!" And the four angels who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year were released, in order that they should kill a third of humanity. And the number of the troops of the cavalry [was] {two hundred million}; I heard the number of them. And in this way I saw the horses in the vision, and those seated on them, who had fiery [red] and hyacinth-colored and sulphurous [yellow] breastplates, and the heads of the horses [were] like the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and sulphur. By these three plagues a third of humanity was killed--by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur that came out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails [are] similar in appearance to snakes, having heads, and with them they cause injury. And the rest of humanity who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, {in order not to worship} the demons and the gold and silver and bronze and stone and wooden idols, which are able neither to see nor to hear nor to walk, and they did not repent of their murders or of their magic spells or of their sexual immorality or of their thefts.

Revelation 10:1-7

And I saw another powerful angel descending from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, and a rainbow over his head, and his face [was] like the sun, and his feet [were] like pillars of fire, and holding in his hand a little scroll that was opened. And he put his right foot on the sea and his left on the land. And he cried out with a loud voice like a lion roars, and when he cried out, the seven thunders sounded their own voices. read more.
And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, and I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Seal up [the things] which the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them!" And the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by the one who lives {forever and ever}, who created heaven and the [things] in it, and the earth and the [things] in it, and the sea and the [things] in it, "There will be no more delay! But in the days of the sound of the seventh angel, whenever he is about to blow the trumpet, then the mystery of God is completed, as he announced to his own slaves the prophets."

Revelation 11:15-19

And the seventh angel blew the trumpet, and there was a loud voice in heaven saying, "The kingdom of the world has become [the kingdom] of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign {forever and ever}." And the twenty-four elders [who are] seated on their thrones before God fell down on their faces and worshiped God, saying, "We give thanks to you, Lord God All-Powerful, the one who is and the one who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. read more.
And the nations were angry, and your wrath has come, and the time for the dead to be judged, and to give their reward to your slaves the prophets and to the saints and to the ones who fear your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth."
