Revelation 9

1 And the fifth angel trumpeted, and I saw a star out from the heaven fallen into the earth, and the key of the well of the abyss was given to him.

2 And he opened the well of the abyss, and smoke ascended out from the well as smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened out from the smoke of the well.

3 And out from the smoke came locusts into the earth, and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth have authority.

4 And it was said to them in order that they will not harm the grass of the earth, nor every green thing nor every tree, except the men who do not have the seal of God upon the foreheads.

5 And it was given to them in order that they might not kill them, but in order that they will be tortured five months, and their torture as torture of a scorpion whenever it might sting a man.

6 And in those days men will seek death and will absolutely not find it, and they will desire to die, and death flees away from them.

7 And the likenesses of the locusts are similar to horses prepared into war, and upon their heads as crowns similar to gold, and their faces as faces of men.

8 And they were having hair as hair of women, and their teeth were as teeth of lions.

9 And they were having breastplates as iron breastplates, and the sound of their wings as the sound of chariots, of many horses running into war.

10 And they have tails similar to scorpions, and stingers, and in their tails their authority to harm men five months.

11 They have a king over them, the angel of the abyss, the Hebrew name for him is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has a name, Apollyon.

12 The one woe went away, behold, two woes are still to come after these things.

13 And the sixth angel trumpeted, and I heard one voice out from the [[four]] horns of the golden altar, the one before God,

14 saying to the sixth angel, the one having the trumpet, “Loose the four angels, the ones bound over at the great river Euphrates.”

15 And the four angels were loosed, the ones prepared into the hour and day and month and year, in order that they might kill the third of men.

16 And the number of the armies of the horsemen was twenty thousands of ten thousands, I heard the number of them.

17 And so I saw the horses in the appearance, and the ones sitting upon them, having fiery and hyacinth and sulfurous colored breastplates, and the heads of the horses as heads of lions, and out from their mouths go out fire and smoke and sulfur.

18 Away from these three plagues were killed the third of the men, out from the fire and the smoke and the sulfur going out from their mouths.

19 For the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are similar to serpents, having heads, and in them they do harm.

20 And the rest of the men who were not killed in these plagues, did not even repent out from the works of their hands, in order that they will not bow down to the demons and the gold and the silver and the brass and the stone and the wood idols, which things are neither able to see nor to hear nor to walk.

21 And they did not repent out from their murders nor out from their drugs nor out from their prostitution nor out from their thefts.
