Revelation 9:1-6 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 The fifth angel blew his trumpet; and I saw a Star which had fallen from Heaven to the earth; and to him was given the key of the depths of the bottomless pit, 2 and he opened the depths of the bottomless pit. And smoke came up out of the pit resembling the smoke of a vast furnace, so that the sun was darkened, and the air also, by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And from the midst of the smoke there came locusts on to the earth, and power was given to them resembling the power which earthly scorpions possess. 4 And they were forbidden to injure the herbage of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree. They were only to injure human beings--those who have not the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 Their mission was not to kill, but to cause awful agony for five months; and this agony was like that which a scorpion inflicts when it stings a man. 6 And at that time people will seek death, but will by no possibility find it, and will long to die, but death evades them.
