Revelation 9
Berean Literal Bible

The Fifth Trumpet

1And the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star having fallen out of heaven to the earth, and the key of the pit of the abyss was given to it. 2And he opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.

3And out of the smoke, locusts came forth unto the earth, and power was given to them, like the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And it was said to them that they shall not harm the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men not having the seal of God on the foreheads. 5And it was granted to them that they should not kill them, but that they shall torment them five months. And their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it might strike a man. 6And in those days, men will seek death, and will not find it; and they will long to die, and death shall flee from them.

7And the appearance of the locusts was like horses having been prepared for battle, and upon their heads were something like crowns, like gold; and their faces 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 many chariots of horses rushing into battle. 10And they have tails and stingers like scorpions, and their power to injure men for five months is in their tails. 11They have a king over them, the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon,a and in the Greek, he has the name Apollyon.b

12The first woe has passed. Behold, two woes still are coming after these things.

The Sixth Trumpet

13And the sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard one voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14saying to the sixth angel, the one having the trumpet, “Release the four angels, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15And the four angels having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year were released, so that they might kill a third of mankind. 16And the number of the armies of the cavalry was twice ten thousand ten thousands; I heard the number of them.

17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those sitting on them, having fiery and hyacinthine and brimstone breastplates. And the heads of the horses were like heads of lions, and out of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three plagues, a third of mankind was killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone proceeding out of their mouths. 19For the powers of the horses are in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents having heads, and with them they injure.

20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not even repent of the works of their hands so that they will not worship the demons, and the golden and silver and bronze and stone and wooden idols, which are able neither to see, nor to hear, nor to walk. 21And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their sexual immorality, nor of their thefts.
