The Fifth Trumpet

1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2and 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 darkned by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3and there came out of the smoke locusts upon the land; and to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4and they were commanded not to hurt the fruits of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; but those men who have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5and to them was power given, not to kill them, but to torment them five months: and their pain was like the pain which a scorpion produces when it strikes a man. 6in those days shall men seek for death, but shall not find it; they will desire to die, and death will shun them.

7the figure of the locusts were like that of horses prepared to battle; but on their heads they had, as it were, crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8their hair was like that of women, and their teeth like the teeth of lions. 9they were vested with breast-plates, as it were of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots and many horses running to battle. 10they had stings in their tails like scorpions; and they had leave to molest men for five months with their stings. 11they had for their king the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek his name is Apollyon.

12One wo is past, and now two woes are to follow.

The Sixth Trumpet

13then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar, which is before God, 14saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates." 15and the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, to slay the third part of men. 16and the number of the horse of that army were two hundred millions: for I heard them number'd. 17the horses I saw in my vision had this appearance: the riders had breast-plates of fire, of jacinth, and brimstone: the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18by these three the third part of men were killed, by the fire, by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19for the power of these horses is in their mouths, and in their tails: for their tails were like serpents, and had heads, with which they do mischief.

20As for the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues, they did not repent of their evil actions, so as to forbear worshipping demons, and idols of gold and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk: 21nor did they repent of their murders, of their poisoning, of their brutality, nor of their robberys.
