9The fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to earth. The key to the shaft of the abyss was given to him.G2532G3991G32G4537G2532G1492G792G4098G1537G3772G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G2807G12G5421 2He opened the shaft of the abyss, and smoke came up out of the shaft like smoke from a great furnace so that the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the shaft.G2532G455G12G5421G2532G305G2586G1537G5421G5613G2586G3173G2575G2532G2246G2532G109G4654G1537G2586G5421 3Then out of the smoke locusts came to the earth, and power was given to them like the power that scorpions have on the earth.G2532G1831G1537G2586G200G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G1849G5613G4651G1093G2192G1849 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green plant, or any tree, but only people who do not have God's seal on their foreheads.G2532G4483G846G3363G91G3363G91G5528G1093G3761G3956G5515G3761G3956G1186G1508G3441G444G3748G2192G3756G4973G2316G1909G846G3359 5They were not permitted to kill them, but were to torment [them] for five months; their torment is like the torment caused by a scorpion when it strikes a man.G2532G846G1325G3363G615G3363G615G846G235G2443G928G4002G3376G2532G846G929G5613G929G4651G3752G3817G444 6In those days people will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, but death will flee from them.G2532G1722G1565G2250G444G2212G2288G2532G2147G3756G2147G846G2532G1937G599G2532G2288G5343G575G846 7The appearance of the locusts was like horses equipped for battle. On their heads were something like gold crowns; their faces were like men's faces;G2532G3667G200G3664G2462G2090G1519G4171G2532G1909G846G2776G5613G4735G3664G5557G2532G846G4383G5613G4383G444 8they had hair like women's hair; their teeth were like lions' teeth;G2532G2192G2359G5613G2359G1135G2532G846G3599G2258G5613G3023 9they had chests like iron breastplates; the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses rushing into battle;G2532G2192G2382G5613G2382G4603G2532G5456G846G4420G5613G5456G716G4183G2462G5143G1519G4171 10and they had tails with stingers, like scorpions, so that with their tails they had the power to harm people for five months.G2532G2192G3769G3664G4651G2532G2258G2759G1722G846G3769G2532G846G1849G91G444G4002G3376 11They had as their king the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon.G2532G2192G935G1909G848G32G12G846G3686G1447G3G2532G1722G1673G2192G3686G623 12The first woe has passed. There are still two more woes to come after this.G3391G3759G565G2400G2064G1417G3759G2089G3326G5023 13The sixth angel blew his trumpet. From the four horns of the gold altar that is before God, I heard a voiceG2532G1623G32G4537G2532G191G3391G5456G1537G5064G2768G5552G2379G3588G1799G2316 14say to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels bound at the great river Euphrates."G3004G1623G32G3739G2192G4536G3089G5064G32G3588G1210G1909G3173G4215G2166 15So the four angels who were prepared for the hour, day, month, and year were released to kill a third of the human race.G2532G5064G32G3089G3588G2090G1519G5610G2532G2250G2532G3376G2532G1763G2443G615G5154G444 16The number of mounted troops was 200 million; I heard their number.G2532G706G4753G2461G1417G3461G3461G2532G191G706G846 17This is how I saw the horses in my vision: The horsemen had breastplates that were fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow. The heads of the horses were like lions' heads, and from their mouths came fire, smoke, and sulfur.G2532G3779G1492G2462G1722G3706G2532G2521G1909G846G2192G2382G4447G2532G5191G2532G2306G2532G2776G2462G5613G2776G3023G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G4442G2532G2586G2532G2303 18A third of the human race was killed by these three plagues— by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur that came from their mouths.G5259G5130G5140G615G5154G444G615G1537G4442G2532G1537G2586G2532G1537G2303G3588G1607G1537G846G4750 19For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, because their tails, like snakes, have heads, and they inflict injury with them.G1063G846G1849G1526G2076G1722G846G4750G2532G1722G846G3769G1063G846G3769G3664G3789G2192G2776G2532G1722G846G91 20The rest of the people, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands to stop worshiping demons and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which are not able to see, hear, or walk.G2532G3062G444G3739G615G3756G615G1722G5025G4127G3777G3340G3777G1537G2041G846G5495G3363G4352G3363G4352G1140G2532G1497G5552G2532G693G2532G5470G2532G3035G2532G3585G3739G3777G1410G991G3777G191G3777G4043 21And they did not repent of their murders, their sorceries, their sexual immorality, or their thefts.G2532G3756G3340G1537G846G5408G3777G1537G846G5331G3777G1537G846G4202G3777G1537G846G2809
