9 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw aa star bfall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given cthe key of dthe bottomless pit. 2 And he opened dthe bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of ea great furnace; and fthe sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke glocusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as hthe scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them ithat they should not hurt kthe grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not lthe seal of God in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented mfive months: and their torment was as the torment of ha scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days nshall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And othe shapes of gthe locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were pcrowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces qof men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and rtheir teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was sas the sound of chariots of many horses running tto battle. 10 And they had tails like unto hscorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men mfive months. 11 And they had ua king over them, which is athe angel of dthe bottomless pit, whose name vin the Hebrew tongue is wAbaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name ||xApollyon. 12 yOne woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from zthe four horns of athe golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose bthe four angels which are bound in cthe great river Euphrates. 15 And bthe four angels were loosed, which were prepared ||for dan hour, and efa day, and ga month, and fa year, for to slay ffthe third part of men. 16 And hthe number of the army iof the horsemen were htwo hundred thousand thousand: kand I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and lof jacinth, and brimstone: and mthe heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued nfire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, nby the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet nnrepented not of othe works of their hands, that they should not worship pdevils, and qidols rsof gold, and rssilver, and sbrass, and sstone, and sof wood: rswhich neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their tmurders, nor of their tusorceries, nor of their tvfornication, nor of their thefts.
