|<< Revelation 9 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And the fifth sounded, and I saw a star that fell from the sky to The Earth, and the key of the pit of The Abyss was given to it.
And smoke came up from the pit like the smoke of a great furnace which was heated, and the Sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.
And from the smoke, locusts went out over The Earth, and power was given to them which the scorpions of The Earth have.
And it was told them not to harm the grass of The Earth, neither any greenery, nor the trees, but only the people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
And it was given to them not to kill them, but that they would suffer pain for five months, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it attacks a man.
And in those days people will seek death and will not find it, and they will long to die and death will flee from them.
7And the form of the locusts was like the form of horses prepared for battle, and upon their heads as crowns of the likeness of gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
8And they had hair like hair of women and their teeth were like those of lions.
9And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron and the sound of their wings was like the sound of the chariots of many horses running to battle.
10And they had tails like scorpions and a sting in their tails, and their authority is to hurt people for five months.
11And there is a King over them, the Angel of The Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Avadu, and in Aramaic his name is Shara.
12One woe is gone; behold, again two woes are coming.
13After these things, the sixth Angel sounded, and I heard one voice from the four horns of the altar of gold, which is before God,
14Which said to the sixth Angel that had a trumpet: “Loose the four Angels imprisoned at the great river Euphrates.”
15And those four Angels were released who were prepared for an hour and for a day and for a month and for a year, to kill a third of the children of men.
16And the number of the army of the horsemen was two-ten thousand ten thousands, and I heard their number.
17And in this way I saw the horses in a vision, and those sitting upon them had breastplates of fire and Chalcedony brimstone, and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions, and fire and brimstone and smoke proceeded from their mouths.
18And by these three scourges a third of the children of men were killed: by the fire, by the brimstone and by the smoke that proceeded from their mouths,
19Because the power of the horses was in their mouths, and also in their tails.
20And the rest of the children of men who were not killed by the scourges did not turn from the work of their hands to not worship Devils and idols of gold, of silver and of brass, and of wood and of stone, which do not see, neither hear, nor are able to walk.
21And they did not turn from their murders or from their witchcraft or from their fornication.
