King James VersionRevelation9


1 And 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. 2 And 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 dark­ened by rea­son of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke lo­custs upon the earth: and unto them was giv­en pow­er, as the scor­pi­ons of the earth have pow­er. 4 And it was com­mand­ed them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nei­ther any green thing, nei­ther any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their fore­heads. 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 striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall de­sire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And the shapes of the lo­custs were like unto hors­es pre­pared unto bat­tle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of wom­en, and their teeth were as the teeth of li­ons. 9 And 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. 10 And they had tails like unto scor­pi­ons, and there were stings in their tails: and their pow­er was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, which is the an­gel of the bot­tom­less pit, whose name in the He­brew tongue is Abad­don, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apol­ly­on. 12 One woe is past; and, be­hold, there come two woes more here­after. 13 And the sixth an­gel sound­ed, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the gold­en al­tar which is be­fore God, 14 Say­ing to the sixth an­gel which had the trum­pet, Loose the four an­gels which are bound in the great riv­er Eu­phrates. 15 And the four an­gels were loosed, which were pre­pared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the num­ber of the army of the horse­men were two hun­dred thou­sand thou­sand: and I heard the num­ber of them. 17 And thus I saw the hors­es in the vi­sion, and them that sat on them, hav­ing breast­plates of fire, and of jacinth, and brim­stone: and the heads of the hors­es were as the heads of li­ons; and out of their mouths is­sued fire and smoke and brim­stone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brim­stone, which is­sued out of their mouths. 19 For their pow­er is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto ser­pents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet re­pent­ed not of the works of their hands, that they should not wor­ship dev­ils, and idols of gold, and sil­ver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which nei­ther can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Nei­ther re­pent­ed they of their mur­ders, nor of their sor­ceries, nor of their for­ni­ca­tion, nor of their thefts.
