Revelations: Chapter 8

2: And I saw… angels which stood before God..

3: And another angel came…. he … offer[ed] prayers [for] all saints…

4: … [T]he prayers of the saints, ascended up before God…

5: And the angel … cast [blessings] into the earth**

6: And the… angels… prepared themselves to sound.**

7: The first angel sounded, and there followed [blessings] cast upon the earth…**

8: And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great [blessing was] cast…**

10: And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great [blessing] from heaven**

12 And the fourth angel sounded, and … the sun, … the moon, and the… stars [were blessed]**

13 And I beheld… an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, [Bless, bless, bless]**

**This verse is altered very much from the original. The word “blessings” is not found in the text or germane to the text. However, casting blessings are of the nature of angels.
