1 And the fifth angel trumpeted, and I saw a 1astar out of heaven bfallen to the earth, and to him was given the ckey of the pit of the 2dabyss.
2 And he opened the pit of the abyss, and asmoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace; and the bsun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.
3 And out of the smoke came forth 1alocusts to the earth, and to them 2power was given, as the bscorpions of the earth have 2power.
4 And it was said to them that they should not harm the grass of the earth or any green thing or any tree, but 1men who do not have the aseal of God on their foreheads.
5 And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented afive months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 And in those days men will aseek death and shall by no means find it; and they will long to die, and death flees from them.
7 And 1the 2alocusts were like horses prepared for bwar, and on their heads there were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were like faces of men.
8 And they had hair like the hair of women, and their ateeth were like the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the asound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses rushing into war.
10 And they have atails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to harm men for bfive months.
11 They have a aking over them, the 1angel of the babyss; his name in Hebrew is 2Abaddon; and in Greek he has the name 3Apollyon.
f. The Sixth Trumpet -- The Second Woe:
Further Judgment on Men --
Two Hundred Million Horsemen
Killing the Third Part of Men
12 The 1afirst woe has passed; behold, 2btwo woes are yet coming after these things.
13 And the sixth angel trumpeted, and I heard a voice out of the four horns of the 1agolden altar which is before God
14 Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Release the four angels who are bound at the great river aEuphrates.
15 And the four angels were released, who had been prepared 1for the hour and day and month and year that they might kill the athird part of men.
16 And the number of the armies of 1horsemen was two hundred million; I heard their number.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision and those sitting on them, having breastplates of afire and of hyacinth and of bbrimstone; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions, and out of their mouths proceed fire and csmoke and brimstone.
18 By these three aplagues the third part of the men were killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone proceeding out of their mouths.
19 For the power of the horses is in their mouth and in their atails; for their tails are like 1bserpents and have heads, and with them they harm men.
20 And the rest of the men, who were not killed by these plagues, still did anot 1repent of the bworks of their hands, so as not to cworship the demons and the didols of gold and silver and brass and stone and wood, which can 2neither see nor hear nor walk;
21 And they did anot repent of their murders or of their bsorceries or of their cfornication or of their thefts.
