Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet. I heard a voice coming from the four corners of the gold altar standing 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 The voice said to the sixth angel, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great Euphrates River!" 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 released; for this very hour of this very day of this very month and year they had been kept ready to kill a third of all the human race. 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 I was told the number of the mounted troops: it was two hundred million. 16 The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.
17 And in my vision I saw the horses and their riders: they had breastplates red as fire, blue as sapphire, and yellow as sulfur. The horses' heads were like lions' heads, and from their mouths came out 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 A third of the human race was killed by those three plagues: the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur coming out of the horses' 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 also in their tails. Their tails are like snakes with heads, and they use them to hurt people. 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 the human race, all those who had not been killed by these plagues, did not turn away from what they themselves had made. They did not stop worshiping demons, nor the idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see, hear, or 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 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic, their sexual immorality, or their stealing. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.
