Revelation 8:3-4 [Latin: Apocalypsis 8:3-4]  – An Angel stood near the altar of the temple, having a golden censer in his hand: and there was given to him much incense and the smoke of the perfumes ascended before God.

Stetit Ángelus, juxta aram templi, habens thuríbulum áureum in manu sua: et data sunt ei incénsa multa et ascéndit fumus aromátum in conspéctu Dei.
