Revelation Chapter 9

Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel trumpeted, and I saw a star fall from the heavens to the earth; and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

Rev 9:2 So he opened the Abyss; and there arose a smoke out of the well, as the smoke of a burning furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the well.

Rev 9:3 Then there came out of the smoke locusts on the land; and to them was given authority, as the scorpions of the land have authority.

Rev 9:4 For it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the land, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God on their foreheads.

Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he strikes a man.

Rev 9:6 And in those days will men seek death, and will not find it; and will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

Rev 9:7 The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

Rev 9:8 They had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

Rev 9:9 They had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots, of many horses running to battle.

Rev 9:10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and they were authorized to hurt men five months.

Rev 9:11 They had a king over them, which is the angel of the Abyss, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has his name Apollyon.

Rev 9:12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more after that.

Rev 9:13 Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Rev 9:14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, loose the four angels whom are bound in the great river Euphrates.

Rev 9:15 So the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, in order to slay the third of men.

Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were myriads upon myriads; and I heard the number of them.

Rev 9:17 Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of hyacinth, and sulfur; and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

Rev 9:18 By these three the third of men were killed, out of the fire, and out of the smoke, and out of the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

Rev 9:19 Because their authority is in their mouths, and in their tails; for their tails were like serpents, and had heads, and in them they do damage.

Rev 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not put to death in these calamities did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood; which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk;

Rev 9:21 neither did they repent of their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their sexual immoralities, nor from their thefts.
