The sixth angel blew his trumpet (Rev 9:13)

“The sixth angel

Blew his trumpet.

I heard

A voice

From the four horns

Of the golden altar

Before God.”

Καὶ ὁ ἕκτος ἄγγελος ἐσάλπισεν· καὶ ἤκουσα φωνὴν μίαν ἐκ τῶν τεσσάρων κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τοῦ χρυσοῦ τοῦ ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ,

John said, “The sixth angel (Καὶ ὁ ἕκτος ἄγγελος) blew his trumpet (ἐσάλπισεν).  I heard (καὶ ἤκουσα) one voice (φωνὴν μίαν) from the four horns (ἐκ τῶν τεσσάρων κεράτων) of the golden altar (τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τοῦ χρυσοῦ) before God (τοῦ ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ).”  John indicated that he heard the sixth angel blow his trumpet.  At the same time, he heard one voice come from the four horns of the heavenly golden altar that was in front of the throne of God.  The four horns were on the four corners of the altar, just like the Jerusalem Temple altar.  Once again, a voice rang out.  Have you ever seen the four horns on an altar?
