Revelation 9
Good News Translation
9Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet. I saw a star which had fallen down to the earth, and it was given the key to the abyss.G2532G3991G32G4537G2532G1492G792G4098G1537G3772G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G2807G12G5421 2The star opened the abyss, and smoke poured out of it, like the smoke from a large furnace; the sunlight and the air were darkened by the smoke from the abyss.G2532G455G12G5421G2532G305G2586G1537G5421G5613G2586G3173G2575G2532G2246G2532G109G4654G1537G2586G5421 3Locusts came down out of the smoke upon the earth, and they were given the same kind of power that scorpions have.G2532G1831G1537G2586G200G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G1849G5613G4651G1093G2192G1849 4They were told not to harm the grass or the trees or any other plant; they could harm only the people who did not have the mark of God's seal on their foreheads.G2532G4483G846G3363G91G3363G91G5528G1093G3761G3956G5515G3761G3956G1186G1508G3441G444G3748G2192G3756G4973G2316G1909G846G3359 5The locusts were not allowed to kill these people, but only to torture them for five months. The pain caused by the torture is like the pain caused by a scorpion's sting.G2532G846G1325G3363G615G3363G615G846G235G2443G928G4002G3376G2532G846G929G5613G929G4651G3752G3817G444 6During those five months they will seek death, but will not find it; they will want to die, but death will flee from them.G2532G1722G1565G2250G444G2212G2288G2532G2147G3756G2147G846G2532G1937G599G2532G2288G5343G575G846 7The locusts looked like horses ready for battle; on their heads they had what seemed to be crowns of gold, and their faces were like human faces.G2532G3667G200G3664G2462G2090G1519G4171G2532G1909G846G2776G5613G4735G3664G5557G2532G846G4383G5613G4383G444 8Their hair was like women's hair, their teeth were like lions' teeth.G2532G2192G2359G5613G2359G1135G2532G846G3599G2258G5613G3023 9Their chests were covered with what looked like iron breastplates, and the sound made by their wings was like the noise of many horse-drawn chariots rushing into battle.G2532G2192G2382G5613G2382G4603G2532G5456G846G4420G5613G5456G716G4183G2462G5143G1519G4171 10They have tails and stings like those of a scorpion, and it is with their tails that they have the power to hurt people for five months.G2532G2192G3769G3664G4651G2532G2258G2759G1722G846G3769G2532G846G1849G91G444G4002G3376 11They have a king ruling over them, who is the angel in charge of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon; in Greek the name is Apollyon (meaning "The Destroyer").G2532G2192G935G1909G848G32G12G846G3686G1447G3G2532G1722G1673G2192G3686G623 12The first horror is over; after this there are still two more horrors to come.G3391G3759G565G2400G2064G1417G3759G2089G3326G5023 13Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet. I heard a voice coming from the four corners of the gold altar standing before God.G2532G1623G32G4537G2532G191G3391G5456G1537G5064G2768G5552G2379G3588G1799G2316 14The voice said to the sixth angel, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great Euphrates River!"G3004G1623G32G3739G2192G4536G3089G5064G32G3588G1210G1909G3173G4215G2166 15The four angels were released; for this very hour of this very day of this very month and year they had been kept ready to kill a third of all the human race.G2532G5064G32G3089G3588G2090G1519G5610G2532G2250G2532G3376G2532G1763G2443G615G5154G444 16I was told the number of the mounted troops: it was two hundred million.G2532G706G4753G2461G1417G3461G3461G2532G191G706G846 17And in my vision I saw the horses and their riders: they had breastplates red as fire, blue as sapphire, and yellow as sulfur. The horses' heads were like lions' heads, and from their mouths came out fire, smoke, and sulfur.G2532G3779G1492G2462G1722G3706G2532G2521G1909G846G2192G2382G4447G2532G5191G2532G2306G2532G2776G2462G5613G2776G3023G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G4442G2532G2586G2532G2303 18A third of the human race was killed by those three plagues: the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur coming out of the horses' mouths.G5259G5130G5140G615G5154G444G615G1537G4442G2532G1537G2586G2532G1537G2303G3588G1607G1537G846G4750 19For the power of the horses is in their mouths and also in their tails. Their tails are like snakes with heads, and they use them to hurt people.G1063G846G1849G1526G2076G1722G846G4750G2532G1722G846G3769G1063G846G3769G3664G3789G2192G2776G2532G1722G846G91 20The rest of the human race, all those who had not been killed by these plagues, did not turn away from what they themselves had made. They did not stop worshiping demons, nor the idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see, hear, or walk.G2532G3062G444G3739G615G3756G615G1722G5025G4127G3777G3340G3777G1537G2041G846G5495G3363G4352G3363G4352G1140G2532G1497G5552G2532G693G2532G5470G2532G3035G2532G3585G3739G3777G1410G991G3777G191G3777G4043 21Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic, their sexual immorality, or their stealing.G2532G3756G3340G1537G846G5408G3777G1537G846G5331G3777G1537G846G4202G3777G1537G846G2809
