The Fifth Trumpet--the Bottomless Pit

1 Then the 1fifth angel sounded, and I saw a 2star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the 3key of the a4bottomless pit was given to him. 2 He opened the bbottomless pit, and 5smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and 6the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke came 7locusts cupon the earth, and power was given them, as the 8scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were told not to 9hurt the 10grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the 11seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And dthey were not permitted to kill eanyone, but to torment for 12five months; and their torment was like the torment of a 13scorpion when it fstings a man. 6 And in those days 14men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. 7 The g15appearance 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 16teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the 17sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. 10 They have tails like 18scorpions, and stings; and in their 19tails is their power to hurt men for 20five months. 11 They have as king over them, the angel of the 21abyss; his name in 22Hebrew is h23Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name iApollyon. 12 24The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.
