Revelation 9 ©

1 At the sounding of the fifth angel a star falleth from heaven, to whom is given the key of the bottomless pit: 2 he opens the pit, and there come forth locusts like scorpions, who have power to hurt men for a time. 12 The first woe past. 13 At the sounding of the sixth angel four angels which were bound are loosed, and bring great plagues on the earth for a limited time.


AND athe fifth angel sounded, and I saw ba star fall from heaven unto the earth: and cto him was given the key of the dbottomless pit.


And he opened the bottomless pit; and ethere arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.


And there came out of the smoke flocusts upon the earth: gand unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.


And it was commanded them that they hshould not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but ionly those men which have not jthe seal of God in their foreheads.

j ch. 7.2.

kAnd to them it was given 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 striketh a man.


lAnd in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.


mAnd the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their nfaces were as the faces of men.


And they had ohair as the hair of women, and their pteeth were as the teeth of lions.


qAnd they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the rsound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.


And they had stails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.


And they had ta king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is uAbaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name 1Apollyon.


vOne woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.


wAnd the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a xvoice from ythe four horns of the golden altar which is before God,


Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose zthe four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.


aAnd the four angels were loosed, which were prepared 2for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the bthird part of men.


And the cnumber of the army of the horsemen were dtwo hundred thousand thousand: and eI heard the number of them.

e ch. 7.4.

And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of *jacinth, and brimstone: and fthe heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued gfire and smoke and *brimstone.


By these three was the third hpart of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the *brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

h v.15.

For their power is in their mouth, and in their itails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they jdo hurt.


And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues kyet repented not of lthe works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:


Neither repented they of mtheir murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
