1. The seventh seal comprehends all the seven trumpets.

These may be divided into the four, which prepare the way for the revelation of the man of sin; and the three, which comprehend the whole history of the Apostasy in its dominant state both in the East and in the West, and which are styled woe-trumpets. The silence at the opening of the seventh scal indicates the anxious expectation of the troubles about to be pro

duced by the sounding of the trumpets. p. 3. II. By the sounding of the four first trumpets, he, that letted or

prevented the revelation of the man of sin, is taken out

the first trumpet, the northern nations, under Alaric, Radagaisys, and Attila, overrun the Human empire, preparatory to the subversion of its Western third part,

2. At the sounding of the second, Genseric king of the Vane

dalo assaults the Western Empire from the south, and
