8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence
in heaven about the space of half an hour.
8:2 And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and to them
were given seven trumpets.
8:3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a
golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he
should offer [it] with the prayers of all saints upon the
