The Fifth Trumpet--the Bottomless Pit

1 Then the fifth R414 angel sounded, and I saw a star R415 from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key R416 of the bottomless R417 F80 pit was given to him. 2 He opened the bottomless F81 pit, and smoke R418 went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the R419 sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke came locusts R420 upon F82 the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions R421 of the earth have power. 4 They were told not to hurt R422 the grass R423 of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal R424 of God on their foreheads. 5 And they F83 were not permitted to kill anyone, F84 but to torment for five R425 months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion R426 when it stings F85 a man. 6 And in those days men R427 will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.

7 The appearance R428 F86 of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8 They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth R429 were like the teeth of lions. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound R430 of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. 10 They have tails like scorpions, R431 and stings; and in their tails R432 is their power to hurt men for five R433 months. 11 They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; R434 his name in Hebrew R435 is Abaddon, R436 F87 and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. F88

12 The R437 first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.

The Sixth Trumpet--Army from the East

13 Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a F89 voice from the four F90 horns R438 of the golden R439 altar which is before God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four R440 angels who are bound at the great R441 river Euphrates." 15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, R442 so that they would kill a third R443 of mankind. F91 16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two R444 hundred million; I R445 heard the number of them. 17 And this F92 is how I saw in R446 the vision the horses and those who sat on them: the riders had breastplates the color of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone; R447 F93 and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and out R448 of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and brimstone. R447 F93 18 A third R449 of mankind F94 was killed by these three plagues, by the fire R450 and the smoke and the brimstone F95 which proceeded out of their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads, and with them they do harm.

20 The rest of mankind, F96 who were not killed by these plagues, did R451 not repent of the R452 works of their hands, so as not to worship R453 demons, and the R454 idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did R455 not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries R456 nor of their immorality R457 nor of their thefts.
