Revelation of John 9

And the fifth angel sounded; and I saw a star having fallen from the heaven to the earth; and the key of the pit of the abyss was given to him. And he opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke came out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened from the smoke of the pit. And locusts came out of the smoke into the earth: and power was given unto them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was said to them that they shall not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; only the men who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads. And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he may strike a man. And in those days men will seek death, and will not find it; and they will desire to die, and death flies from them. And the shapes of the locusts are like horses having been made ready for war; and upon their heads as it were crowns like gold, and their faces are like the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses rushing to war. 10 And they have tails like scorpions, and stings: and their power is in their tails, to hurt men five months: 11 and they have over them a king, the angel of the bottomless pit, to him the name is Abaddon in Hebrew, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon. 12 One Woe is past; behold two Woes come yet after these things. 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard one voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel the one having the trumpet, Loose the four angels which have been bound at the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, that they should slay the third part of the men. 16 And the number of the armies of the cavalry was two myriads of myriads: I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those sitting on them, having breastplates as of fire, and of hyacinth, and of brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as of the heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceeds fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 And from these three plagues the third of the men were slain, from the fire, and from the smoke, and from the brimstone, coming out of their mouth. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails are like serpents, having heads, and with them they do hurt. 20 And the rest of the men who were not slain by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood; which are neither able to see, nor to hear, nor to walk: 21 and they did not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
