Revelation 9
The Message
9The fifth Angel trumpeted. I saw a Star plummet from Heaven to earth. The Star was handed a key to the Well of the Abyss.G2532G3991G32G4537G2532G1492G792G4098G1537G3772G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G2807G12G5421 2He unlocked the Well of the Abyss—smoke poured out of the Well, billows and billows of smoke, sun and air in blackout from smoke pouring out of the Well.G2532G455G12G5421G2532G305G2586G1537G5421G5613G2586G3173G2575G2532G2246G2532G109G4654G1537G2586G5421 3Then out of the smoke crawled locusts with the venom of scorpions.G2532G1831G1537G2586G200G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G1849G5613G4651G1093G2192G1849 4They were given their orders: "Don't hurt the grass, don't hurt anything green, don't hurt a single tree—only men and women, and then only those who lack the seal of God on their foreheads."G2532G4483G846G3363G91G3363G91G5528G1093G3761G3956G5515G3761G3956G1186G1508G3441G444G3748G2192G3756G4973G2316G1909G846G3359 5They were ordered to torture but not kill, torture them for five months, the pain like a scorpion sting.G2532G846G1325G3363G615G3363G615G846G235G2443G928G4002G3376G2532G846G929G5613G929G4651G3752G3817G444 6When this happens, people are going to prefer death to torture, look for ways to kill themselves. But they won't find a way—death will have gone into hiding.G2532G1722G1565G2250G444G2212G2288G2532G2147G3756G2147G846G2532G1937G599G2532G2288G5343G575G846 7The locusts looked like horses ready for war. They had gold crowns, human faces,G2532G3667G200G3664G2462G2090G1519G4171G2532G1909G846G2776G5613G4735G3664G5557G2532G846G4383G5613G4383G444 8women's hair, the teeth of lions,G2532G2192G2359G5613G2359G1135G2532G846G3599G2258G5613G3023 9and iron breastplates. The sound of their wings was the sound of horse-drawn chariots charging into battle.G2532G2192G2382G5613G2382G4603G2532G5456G846G4420G5613G5456G716G4183G2462G5143G1519G4171 10Their tails were equipped with stings, like scorpion tails. With those tails they were ordered to torture the human race for five months.G2532G2192G3769G3664G4651G2532G2258G2759G1722G846G3769G2532G846G1849G91G444G4002G3376 11They had a king over them, the Angel of the Abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, in Greek, Apollyon—"Destroyer."G2532G2192G935G1909G848G32G12G846G3686G1447G3G2532G1722G1673G2192G3686G623 12The first doom is past. Two dooms yet to come.G3391G3759G565G2400G2064G1417G3759G2089G3326G5023 13The sixth Angel trumpeted. I heard a voice speaking to the sixth Angel from the horns of the Golden Altar before God:G2532G1623G32G4537G2532G191G3391G5456G1537G5064G2768G5552G2379G3588G1799G2316 14"Let the Four Angels loose, the Angels confined at the great River Euphrates."G3004G1623G32G3739G2192G4536G3089G5064G32G3588G1210G1909G3173G4215G2166 15The Four Angels were untied and let loose, Four Angels all prepared for the exact year, month, day, and even hour when they were to kill a third of the human race.G2532G5064G32G3089G3588G2090G1519G5610G2532G2250G2532G3376G2532G1763G2443G615G5154G444 16The number of the army of horsemen was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard the countG2532G706G4753G2461G1417G3461G3461G2532G191G706G846 17and saw both horses and riders in my vision: fiery breastplates on the riders, lion heads on the horses breathing out fire and smoke and brimstone.G2532G3779G1492G2462G1722G3706G2532G2521G1909G846G2192G2382G4447G2532G5191G2532G2306G2532G2776G2462G5613G2776G3023G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G4442G2532G2586G2532G2303 18With these three weapons—fire and smoke and brimstone—they killed a third of the human race.G5259G5130G5140G615G5154G444G615G1537G4442G2532G1537G2586G2532G1537G2303G3588G1607G1537G846G4750 19The horses killed with their mouths and tails; their serpentlike tails also had heads that wreaked havoc.G1063G846G1849G1526G2076G1722G846G4750G2532G1722G846G3769G1063G846G3769G3664G3789G2192G2776G2532G1722G846G91 20The remaining men and women who weren't killed by these weapons went on their merry way—didn't change their way of life, didn't quit worshiping demons, didn't quit centering their lives around lumps of gold and silver and brass, hunks of stone and wood that couldn't see or hear or move.G2532G3062G444G3739G615G3756G615G1722G5025G4127G3777G3340G3777G1537G2041G846G5495G3363G4352G3363G4352G1140G2532G1497G5552G2532G693G2532G5470G2532G3035G2532G3585G3739G3777G1410G991G3777G191G3777G4043 21There wasn't a sign of a change of heart. They plunged right on in their murderous, occult, promiscuous, and thieving ways.G2532G3756G3340G1537G846G5408G3777G1537G846G5331G3777G1537G846G4202G3777G1537G846G2809
