Joel 2:4-11

4 a  Their appearance is like the appearance of horses,
and like war horses they run.
5 b  As with the rumbling of chariots,
they leap on the tops of the mountains,
like the crackling of c  a flame of fire
devouring the stubble,
d  like a powerful army
drawn up for battle.
6 Before them peoples are in anguish;
e  all faces grow pale.
7Like warriors they charge;
like soldiers they scale the wall.
They march each on his way;
they do not swerve from their paths.
8They do not jostle one another;
f  each marches in his path;
they burst through the weapons
and are not halted.
9 g  They leap upon the city,
they run upon the walls,
h  they climb up into the houses,
i  they enter through the windows j  like a thief.
10 k  The earth quakes before them;
the heavens tremble.
l  The sun and the moon are darkened,
and the stars withdraw their shining.
11 m  The  Lord utters his voice
before n  his army,
for his camp is exceedingly great;
o  he who executes his word is powerful.
p  For the day of the  Lord is q  great and very awesome;
r  who can endure it?

Revelation of John 9:7-19

7 s  In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: t  on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were u  like human faces, 8their hair like women’s hair, and v  their teeth like lions’ teeth; 9they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was w  like the noise of many chariots with x  horses rushing into battle. 10They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people y  for five months is in their tails. 11They have z  as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is aa  Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.
 Abaddon means destruction;  Apollyon means destroyer

12 ac  The first woe has passed; behold, two woes are still to come.

13Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from ad  the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release ae  the four angels who are bound at af  the great river Euphrates.” 15So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released ag  to kill a third of mankind. 16The number of ah  mounted troops was ai  twice ten thousand times ten thousand; aj  I heard their number. 17And this is how I saw the horses in my vision and those who rode them: they wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire
Greek hyacinth
and of sulfur, and the heads of the horses were al  like lionsheads, and fire and smoke and sulfur came out of their mouths.
18By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths. 19For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.
