1Then the 1fifthangelsounded, and I saw a 2star from heaven which had fallen to the earth ; and the 3key of the a4bottomlesspit was given to him.
He opened the bbottomlesspit, and 5smokewent up out of the pit, like the smoke of a greatfurnace ; and 6the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.
3Then out of the smokecame7locustscupon the earth, and power was given them, as the 8scorpions of the earthhavepower.
They were told not to 9hurt the 10grass of the earth, noranygreenthing, noranytree, but only the menwho do not have the 11seal of God on their foreheads.
And dthey were not permitted to killeanyone, but to torment for 12fivemonths ; and their torment was like the torment of a 13scorpionwhen it fstings a man.
And in thosedays14men will seekdeath and will not find it; they will long to die, and deathflees from them.
