Revelation of John 9

CHAPTER 9

Fifth Trumpet: Smoke and Locusts -- 1st Woe

1And the fifth angel trumped; and I saw a star [2from out of 3the 4heaven 1falling] unto the earth; and was given to him the key of the well of the abyss. 2And he opened the well of the abyss, and ascended smoke from out of the well, as smoke of a furnace burning. And [6were darkened 1the 2sun 3and 4the 5air] by the smoke of the well. 3And out of the smoke came forth locusts unto the earth; and [2was given 3to them 1authority], as [5have 6authority 1the 2scorpions 3of the 4earth]. 4And it was said to them that they should not injure the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; except for the men only, the ones who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads. 5And was given to them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented [2months 1five]; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, whenever it should smite a man. 6And in those days [2shall seek 1men] death, and in no way shall they find it; and they shall desire to die, and [2shall flee 3from 4them 1death]. 7And the representations of the locusts were likened to horses being prepared for war; and upon their heads as [2crowns 1golden], and their faces as faces of men. 8And they had hair as hair of women, and their teeth [2as 3lions 1were]. 9And they had chest plates as chest plates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound [2chariots 3of horses 1of many] running to war. 10And they have tails likened to scorpions, and stings, and in their tails [2authority 1having] to injure men [2months 1five]. 11They have a king over them -- the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek [2the name 1he has] Apollyon. 12The [2woe 1one] went forth, behold, comes still two woes after these.

Sixth Trumpet: Four Angels at the Euphrates -- 2nd Woe

13And the sixth angel trumped; and I heard [2voice 1one] from the four horns of the [2altar 1golden], of the one before God, 14saying to the sixth angel, the one having the trumpet, Loose the four angels being bound at the [2river 1great] Euphrates! 15And [4were loosened 1the 2four 3angels], the ones being prepared for the hour, and day, and month, and year, that they should kill the third of men. 16And the number of the military of the horses -- myriads of myriads; and I heard their number. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and the ones sitting down upon them, having chest plates of fiery color, and of blue, and sulphurous; and the heads of the horses were as heads of lions, and out of their mouths went forth fire, and smoke, and sulphur. 18From [2three 3plagues 1these] were killed the third of men, by the fire, and by the smoke, and of the sulphur going forth out of their mouths. 19For the authority of the horses [2in 3their mouth 1is] and in their tails; for their tails are likened to serpents, having heads; and by them they injure. 20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these calamities repented not from the works of their hands, that they should not do obeisance to the demons, and the idols -- the golden, and the silver, and the brass, and the stones, and the wooden, which neither [2to see 1are able], nor to hear, nor to walk. 21And they repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their harlotry, nor of their thefts.
