Revelation 8:7-9

Context

8:7 The 1  first angel blew his trumpet, and there was hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was thrown at the earth so that 2  a third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8:8 Then 3  the second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain of burning fire was thrown into the sea. A 4  third of the sea became blood, 8:9 and a third of the creatures 5  living in the sea died, and a third of the ships were completely destroyed. 6 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so that” because what follows has the logical force of a result clause.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the vision.

4 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

5 tn Or “a third of the living creatures in the sea”; Grk “the third of the creatures which were in the sea, the ones having life.”

6 tn On the term translated “completely destroyed,” L&N 20.40 states, “to cause the complete destruction of someone or something – ‘to destroy utterly.’ τὸ τρίτον τῶν πλοίων διεφθάρησαν ‘a third of the ships were completely destroyed’ Re 8:9.”
