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.110
They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.211
They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss,3 whose name in Hebrew4 is Abaddon,5 and in Greek, Apollyon.a12
The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.613
The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the hornsb7 of the golden altar that is before God.814
It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels9 who are bound at the great river Euphrates."1015
And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released11 to kill a third12 of mankind.1316
The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.1417
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 mouths15 came fire, smoke and sulfur.1618
A third17 of mankind was killed18 by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur19 that came out of their mouths.
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.
