The Fifth Trumpet—the Bottomless Pit

1 Then the afifth angel sounded, and I saw a bstar from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the ckey of the Idbottomless pit was given to him. 2 He opened the Ibottomless pit, and asmoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and bthe sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke came alocusts Iupon the earth, and power was given them, as the bscorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were told not to ahurt the bgrass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the cseal of God on their foreheads. 5 And Ithey were not permitted to kill IIanyone, but to torment for afive months; and their torment was like the torment of a bscorpion when it IIIstings a man. 6 And in those days amen will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.

The Sixth Trumpet—Army from the East

13 ¶ Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard Ia voice from the IIfour ahorns of the bgolden altar which is before God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the afour angels who are bound at the bgreat river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were areleased, so that they would kill a bthird of Imankind. 16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was atwo hundred million; bI heard the number of them. 17 And Ithis is how I saw ain the vision the horses and those who sat on them: [the riders] had breastplates [the color] of fire and of hyacinth and of IIbbrimstone; and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and cout of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and IIbbrimstone. 18 A athird of Imankind was killed by these three plagues, by the bfire and the smoke and the IIbrimstone which proceeded out of their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads, and with them they do harm.

At the sounding of the fifth angel, a star falleth from heaven, to whom is given the key of the bottomless pit.

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.

[1] Is 14:12; Lk 8:31; 10:18; Ro 10:7; 2Th 2:3; 2Ti 3:1; Rv 1:18, 20; 8:6, 10, 12; 9:2, 11, 12; 11:14; 17:8; 20:1, 10.

He openeth the pit, and there come forth locusts like scorpions.

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.

Four angels are let loose, that were bound.

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.
