This first woe is placed within a repetition of woes. It is proclaimed with a sense of sadness, almost like
a sympathetic sorrow; but, there is an emphasis, a declaration of condemnation, with the sense of divine
judgment of the evil upon the disbelieving world.
Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice,
"Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three
angels who are about to sound!" (Rev 8:13)
Up until to the fifth trumpet, God's wrath of judgment was not focused on causing physical
injury upon human beings; now the last three trumpets will bring torment and death upon all of mankind on earth.
