Revelation of John 9
The Fifth Trumpet— the Bottomless Pit1 Then the a fifth angel sounded, and I saw a b star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the c key of the ▼
▼ Lit shaft of the abyss, e bottomless pit was given to him. 2 He opened the ▼
▼ V 1, note 1bottomless pit, and g smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and h the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke came i locusts ▼
▼ Lit intoupon the earth, and power was given them, as the k scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were told not to l hurt the m grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the n seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And ▼
▼ Lit it was given to themthey were not permitted to kill ▼
▼ Lit themanyone, but to torment for q five months; and their torment was like the torment of a r scorpion when it ▼
▼ Lit strikesstings a man. 6 And in those days t men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. 7 The ▼
▼ Lit likenesses, v appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8 They had hair like the hair of women, and their w teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the x sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. 10 They have tails like y scorpions, and stings; and in their z tails is their power to hurt men for aa five months. 11 They have as king over them, the angel of the ab abyss; his name in ac Hebrew is ▼
▼ I.e. destruction, ae Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name ▼
▼ I.e. destroyerApollyon. 12 ag The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.
The Sixth Trumpet— Army from the East13 Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard ▼
▼ Lit one voicea voice from the ▼
▼ Two early mss do not contain fourfour aj horns of the ak golden altar which is before God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the al four angels who are bound at the am great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were an released, so that they would kill a ao third of ▼ mankind. 16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was aq two hundred million; ar I heard the number of them. 17 And ▼
▼ Lit thus I sawthis is how I saw at in the vision the horses and those who sat on them: the riders had breastplates the color of fire and of hyacinth and of ▼ , av brimstone; and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and aw out of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and ▼ , ay brimstone. 18 A az third of ▼ mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the bb fire and the smoke and the ▼ brimstone which proceeded out of their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads, and with them they do harm. 20 The rest of ▼ mankind, who were not killed by these plagues be did not repent of bf the works of their hands, so as not to bg worship demons, and bh the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they bi did not repent of their murders nor of their bj sorceries nor of their bk immorality nor of their thefts.
