Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the fifth angel trumpeted; and I saw, that a star had fallen down from heaven into earth; and the key of the pit of deepness was given to it. [And the fifth angel sang in trump; and I saw that a star had fallen down from heaven into earth; and the key of the pit of deepness 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 And it opened the pit of deepness [And he opened the pit of deepness], and a smoke of the pit ascended up, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun was darked, and the air, of the smoke of 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 And locusts went out of the smoke of the pit into earth [And of the smoke of the pit locusts went out into the earth]; and power was given to them, as scorpions of the earth 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 And it was commanded to them, that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only men, that have not the sign of God [that have not the mark of God] in 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 And it was given to them, that they should not slay them, but that they should be tormented five months; and the tormenting of them, as the tormenting of a scorpion, when he smiteth 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 And in those days men shall seek death, and they shall not find it; and they shall desire to die, and death shall 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 And the likeness of locusts be like horses made ready into battle [And the likeness of locusts be like to horses made ready to battle]; and on the heads of them as crowns like gold, and the faces of them as the faces of men. 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 And they had hairs, as the hairs of women; and the teeth of them were as the teeth of lions. 8 Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9 And they had habergeons, as iron habergeons, and the voice of their wings as the voice of chariots of many horses running to battle. 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 And they had tails like [to] scorpions, and pricks were in the tails of them; and the might of them was to harm men five months. 10 They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
11 And they had on [upon] them a king, the angel of deepness, to whom the name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but by Greek Apollyon, and by Latin he hath a name Exterminus, that is, Destroyer. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.
12 One woe is passed, and lo! yet come two woes. 12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.
13 After these things also the sixth angel trumpeted [After these things also the sixth angel sang in trump]; and I heard a voice from the four corners of the golden altar, that is before the eyes of 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 and said to the sixth angel that had a trumpet, Unbind thou four angels, that be bound in the great river Euphrates. [saying to the sixth angel that had a trump, Unbind the four angels, that be bound in the great flood Euphrates.] 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates."
15 And the four angels were unbound, which were ready into hour, and day, and month, and year, to slay the third part of men. 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 And the number of the host of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. 16 The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.
17 And so I saw horses in vision; and they that sat on them had fiery habergeons, and of jacinth, and of brimstone [and brimstone]. And the heads of the horses were as [the] heads of lions; and fire, and smoke, and brimstone, cometh forth of the mouth of them [and of the mouth of them fire came forth, and smoke and brimstone]. 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 Of these three plagues the third part of men was slain, of the fire, and of the smoke, and of the brimstone, that came out of the mouth of them. 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 the mouth of them, and in the tails of them; for the tails of them be like to serpents, having heads, and in 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 And the other men, that were not slain in these plagues, neither did penance of the works of their hands, that they worshipped not devils, and simulacra of gold, and of silver [and silver], and of brass, and of stone [and brass, and stone], and of tree, which neither be able to see [which neither may see], neither hear, neither wander; 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 and [they] did not penance of their manslayings, neither of their witchcrafts, neither of their fornication, neither of their thefts, were slain [neither of their fornication, neither of their thefts]. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.
