Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from the sky fallen to the eretz. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him. 1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
2 He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a great furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit. 2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
3 Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the eretz, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the eretz have power. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.
4 They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the eretz, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men who don't have God's seal on their foreheads. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a man. 5 They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 In those days men will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them. 6 During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
7 The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war. On their heads were something like gold crowns, and their faces were like men's faces. 7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces.
8 They had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like those of lions. 8 Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9 They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron. The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle.
10 They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails is their power to harm men for five months. 10 They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
11 They have over them as king the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is "Avaddon," but in Yevanit, he has the name "Apollyon." 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.
12 The first woe is past. Behold, there are still two woes coming after this. 12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.
13 The sixth angel sounded. I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before God, 13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God.
14 saying to the sixth angel who had one shofar, "Free the four angels who are bound at the great river Perat." 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates."
15 The four angels were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year, so that they would kill one third of mankind. 15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind.
16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million. I heard the number of them. 16 The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.
17 Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of lions. Out of their mouths proceed fire, smoke, and sulfur. 17 The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur.
18 By these three plagues were one third of mankind killed: by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur, which proceeded out of their mouths. 18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came 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 harm. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury.
20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues, didn't repent of the works of their hands, that they wouldn't worship demons, and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk. 20 The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood--idols that cannot see or hear or walk.
21 They didn't repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their sexual immorality, nor of their thefts. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.
