Revelation 9 (Third Millennium Bible)

1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth; and to him was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth; and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 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 those men who have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for battle; and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots with many horses running to battle. 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stingers in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue his name is Apollyon. 12 One woe is past; and behold, there come two more woes hereafter. 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which stands before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates." 15 And the four angels were loosed, who had been prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, to slay a third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of horsemen was two hundred thousand thousand, and I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and they that sat on them had breastplates of fire and of jacinth and brimstone; and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions, and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was a third part of men killed by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails were like unto serpents and had heads, and with them they cause hurt. 20 And the rest of the men, who were not killed by these plagues, yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold and silver, and brass and stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
