e. The Fifth Trumpet -- The First Woe:
Judgment on Men -- Satan and Antichrist
Collaborating to Torment Men
13 And I saw, and I heard an aeagle flying in bmid-heaven, saying with a loud voice, 1cWoe, woe, woe, to those who ddwell on the earth because of the remaining trumpet sounds of the ethree angels who are about to trumpet!
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.
