Bible: Revelation 9:1-11
9:1 Then 1 the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky 2 to the earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the abyss. 3 9:2 He 4 opened the shaft of the abyss and smoke rose out of it 5 like smoke from a giant furnace. The 6 sun and the air were darkened with smoke from the shaft. 9:3 Then 7 out of the smoke came locusts onto the earth, and they were given power 8 like that of the scorpions of the earth. 9:4 They 9 were told 10 not to damage the grass of the earth, or any green plant or tree, but only those people 11 who did not have the seal of God on their 12 forehead. 9:5 The locusts 13 were not given permission 14 to kill 15 them, but only to torture 16 them 17 for five months, and their torture was like that 18 of a scorpion when it stings a person. 19 9:6 In 20 those days people 21 will seek death, but 22 will not be able to 23 find it; they will long to die, but death will flee from them.
9:7 Now 24 the locusts looked like horses equipped for battle. On 25 their heads were something like crowns similar to gold, 26 and their faces looked like men’s 27 faces. 9:8 They 28 had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9:9 They had breastplates 29 like iron breastplates, and the sound of their wings was like the noise of many horse-drawn chariots charging into battle. 9:10 They have 30 tails and stingers like scorpions, and their ability 31 to injure people for five months is in their tails. 9:11 They have as king over them the angel of the abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon. 32
