And in thosedays8men will seekdeath and will not find it; they will long to die, and deathflees from them.

They hadbreastplateslikebreastplates of iron ; and the 11sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of manyhorsesrushing to battle.
They havetailslike12scorpions, and stings ; and in their 13tails is their power to hurtmen for 14fivemonths.
They have as kingover them, the angel of the 15abyss ; his name in 16Hebrew is f17Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the namegApollyon.
