Revelation of John 9

And the fifth angel sounded; and I saw a star, which fell from heaven upon the earth. And there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss. And he opened the pit of the abyss; and smoke issued from the pit, like the smoke of a furnace that is in blast; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke, came locusts upon the earth: and power was given them, like that which scorpions have on the earth. And it was commanded them, that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any herb, nor any tree; but only the persons, who had not the seal of God upon their foreheads. And it was given them, that they should not kill them, but should torment them five months: and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it striketh a person. And in those days, men will desire death, and will not find it; and they will long to die, and death will fly from them. And the appearance of the locusts was this; they were like the appearance of horses prepared for battle; and on their heads, was, as it were a coronet, resembling gold; and their faces were like the faces of men. And they had hair, like the hair of women: and their teeth were like those of lions. And they had breastplates, like breastplates of iron: and the sound of their wings, was like the sound of the chariots of many horses rushing into battle. 10 And they had tails like those of scorpions, and stings; and with their tails they had the power of hurting men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, the angel of the abyss; and his name, in Hebrew, is Abaddon; and in Greek, his name is Apollyon. 12 One woe is past; lo, there come yet two woes after them. 13 And the sixth angel sounded; and I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which was before God, 14 that said to the sixth angel having a trumpet: Loose the four angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed; who are prepared, for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the warrior horsemen was two myriads of myriads: and I heard their number. 17 And while I looked on the horses in the vision, and on them who sat on them I saw that the breastplates were of fire, and of jacinth, and of sulphur. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and from their mouths issued fire, and smoke, and sulphur. 18 And by these three plagues, a third part of the men were slain; namely, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the sulphur, which issued from their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses was in; their mouth, and in their tails; for their tails were like serpents, having heads to strike with. 20 And the residue of men who were not slain by these plagues, repented not of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and idols of gold, and of silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which cannot see, nor hear. 21 And they repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their whoredom, nor of their thefts.
