The Fifth and Sixth Trumpets

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:1 - Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:2 - And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:3 - Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:4 - They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:5 - And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:6 - In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:7 - The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:8 - They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:9 - And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle.

Sixth Trumpet: The Angels from the Euphrates

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:13 - Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:14 - saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:15 - So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:16 - Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:17 - And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:18 - By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:19 - For their power[fn] is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:20 - But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 9:21 - And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries[fn] or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
