THE REV­E­LA­TION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE - CHAP­TER NINE3 And the fifth an­gel blew, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth. And to him was given the key of the bot­tom­less pit. And he opened the bot­tom­less pit, and there arose the smoke of a great fur­nace. And the sun, and the air were dark­ened by the rea­son of the smoke of the pit. 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. And it hurt [not] the grass of the earth: nei­ther any green thing: nei­ther any tree: but only those men which have not the seal in their fore­heads, and to them was com­manded that they should not kill them, but that they should be vexed five months, and their pain was as the pain that cometh of a scorpion, when he hath stung a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it, and shall de­sire to die, and death shall fly from them.

And the simil­i­tude of the lo­custs was like unto horses pre­pared unto bat­tle, and on their heads were as it were crowns, like unto gold: and their faces were as it had been the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women. And their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had haber­geons, as it were haber­geons of iron. And the sound of their wings, was as the sound of char­i­ots when many horses run to­gether to bat­tle. And they had tails like unto scor­pi­ons, and there were stings in their tails. And their power was to hurt men five months. 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, Apol­lyon. One woe is past, and be­hold two woes come af­ter this.

And the sixth an­gel blew, and I heard a voice from the four cor­ners of the golden al­tar which is be­fore God, say­ing to the sixth an­gel, which had the trum­pet: Loose four an­gels, which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four an­gels were loosed which were pre­pared for an hour, for a day, for a month, and for a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the num­ber of horse­men of war, were twenty times ten thou­sand. And I heard the num­ber of them. And thus I saw the horses in a vi­sion and them that sat on them hav­ing fiery haber­geons of a jacinth colour, and brim­stone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions. And out of their mouths went forth fire and smoke, and brim­stone. And of these three was the third part of men killed: that is to say, of fire, smoke, and brim­stone, which pro­ceeded out of the mouths of them: For their power was in their mouths and in their tails: for their tails were like unto ser­pents, and had heads, and with them they did hurt: And the rem­nant of the men which were not killed by these plagues, re­pented not of the deeds of their hands that they should not wor­ship devils, and images of gold, and sil­ver, and brass, and stone, and of wood, which nei­ther can see, nei­ther hear, nei­ther go. Also they re­pented not of their mur­der, and of their sor­cery nei­ther of their for­ni­ca­tion nei­ther of their theft.
