Revelation 9
Amplified Bible
9THEN THE fifth angel blew [his] trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth; and to the angel was given the key of the shaft of the Abyss (the bottomless pit).G2532G3991G32G4537G2532G1492G792G4098G1537G3772G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G2807G12G5421 2He opened the long shaft of the Abyss (the bottomless pit), and smoke like the smoke of a huge furnace puffed out of the long shaft, so that the sun and the atmosphere were darkened by the smoke from the long shaft.G2532G455G12G5421G2532G305G2586G1537G5421G5613G2586G3173G2575G2532G2246G2532G109G4654G1537G2586G5421 3Then out of the smoke locusts came forth on the earth, and such power was granted them as the power the earth's scorpions have.G2532G1831G1537G2586G200G1519G1093G2532G846G1325G1849G5613G4651G1093G2192G1849 4They were told not to injure the herbage of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only [to attack] such human beings as do not have the seal (mark) of God on their foreheads.G2532G4483G846G3363G91G3363G91G5528G1093G3761G3956G5515G3761G3956G1186G1508G3441G444G3748G2192G3756G4973G2316G1909G846G3359 5They were not permitted to kill them, but to torment (distress, vex) them for five months; and the pain caused them was like the torture of a scorpion when it stings a person.G2532G846G1325G3363G615G3363G615G846G235G2443G928G4002G3376G2532G846G929G5613G929G4651G3752G3817G444 6And in those days people will seek death and will not find it; and they will yearn to die, but death evades {and} flees from them.G2532G1722G1565G2250G444G2212G2288G2532G2147G3756G2147G846G2532G1937G599G2532G2288G5343G575G846 7The locusts resembled horses equipped for battle. On their heads was something like golden crowns. Their faces resembled the faces of people.G2532G3667G200G3664G2462G2090G1519G4171G2532G1909G846G2776G5613G4735G3664G5557G2532G846G4383G5613G4383G444 8They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.G2532G2192G2359G5613G2359G1135G2532G846G3599G2258G5613G3023 9Their breastplates (scales) resembled breastplates made of iron, and the [whirring] noise made by their wings was like the roar of a vast number of horse-drawn chariots going at full speed into battle.G2532G2192G2382G5613G2382G4603G2532G5456G846G4420G5613G5456G716G4183G2462G5143G1519G4171 10They have tails like scorpions, and they have stings, and in their tails lies their ability to hurt men for [the] five months.G2532G2192G3769G3664G4651G2532G2258G2759G1722G846G3769G2532G846G1849G91G444G4002G3376 11Over them as king they have the angel of the Abyss (of the bottomless pit). In Hebrew his name is Abaddon [destruction], but in Greek he is called Apollyon [destroyer].G2532G2192G935G1909G848G32G12G846G3686G1447G3G2532G1722G1673G2192G3686G623 12The first woe (calamity) has passed; behold, two others are yet to follow.G3391G3759G565G2400G2064G1417G3759G2089G3326G5023 13Then the sixth angel blew [his] trumpet, and from the four horns of the golden altar which stands before God I heard a solitary voice,G2532G1623G32G4537G2532G191G3391G5456G1537G5064G2768G5552G2379G3588G1799G2316 14Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Liberate the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.G3004G1623G32G3739G2192G4536G3089G5064G32G3588G1210G1909G3173G4215G2166 15So the four angels who had been in readiness for that hour in the appointed day, month, and year were liberated to destroy a third of mankind.G2532G5064G32G3089G3588G2090G1519G5610G2532G2250G2532G3376G2532G1763G2443G615G5154G444 16The number of their troops of cavalry was twice ten thousand times ten thousand (200,000,000); I heard what their number was.G2532G706G4753G2461G1417G3461G3461G2532G191G706G846 17And in [my] vision the horses and their riders appeared to me like this: the riders wore breastplates the color of fiery red and sapphire blue and sulphur (brimstone) yellow. The heads of the horses looked like lions' heads, and from their mouths there poured fire and smoke and sulphur (brimstone).G2532G3779G1492G2462G1722G3706G2532G2521G1909G846G2192G2382G4447G2532G5191G2532G2306G2532G2776G2462G5613G2776G3023G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G4442G2532G2586G2532G2303 18A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues--by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur (brimstone) that poured from the mouths of the horses.G5259G5130G5140G615G5154G444G615G1537G4442G2532G1537G2586G2532G1537G2303G3588G1607G1537G846G4750 19For the power of the horses to do harm is in their mouths and also in their tails. Their tails are like serpents, for they have heads, and it is by means of them that they wound people.G1063G846G1849G1526G2076G1722G846G4750G2532G1722G846G3769G1063G846G3769G3664G3789G2192G2776G2532G1722G846G91 20And the rest of humanity who were not killed by these plagues even then did not repent of [the worship of] the works of their [own] hands, so as to cease paying homage to the demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor move.G2532G3062G444G3739G615G3756G615G1722G5025G4127G3777G3340G3777G1537G2041G846G5495G3363G4352G3363G4352G1140G2532G1497G5552G2532G693G2532G5470G2532G3035G2532G3585G3739G3777G1410G991G3777G191G3777G4043 21And they did not repent of their murders or their practice of magic (sorceries) or their sexual vice or their thefts.G2532G3756G3340G1537G846G5408G3777G1537G846G5331G3777G1537G846G4202G3777G1537G846G2809
