The trumpet blast that in some religious beliefs is thought will wake the dead on Judgement Day.
- ‘Let the last trump sound when it will, I shall come forward with this work in my hand, to present myself before my Sovereign Judge, and proclaim aloud: ‘… I have bared my secret soul as Thou thyself hast seen it, Eternal Being.’’
- ‘‘When the angel Gabriel sounds the last trump of God,’ he boldly prophesied, ‘then, and not before, will slavery be abolished south of Mason and Dixon's line!’’
- ‘Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.’
