1 And the fifth messenger sounded, and I saw a star from the heaven having fallen to the earth, and was given to him the key of the pit of the deep;
2 and he opened the pit of the deep. And went up a smoke out of the pit as a smoke of a furnace great, and was darkened the sun and the air by the smoke of the pit.
3 And out of the smoke went out locusts into the earth, and was given them authority as having authority the scorpions of the earth;
4 and it was said to them, that not they should injure the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, if not the men those who not have the seal of the God on the foreheads of themselves;
5 and it was given to them that not they might kill them, but that they might torment months five; and the torment of them as a torment of a scorpion, when it may strike a man.
6 And in the days those shall seek the men the death, and not not shall find him; and they shall desire to die, and shall flee away from them the death.
7 And the forms of the locusts like to horses having been prepared for war; and on the heads of them as it were crowns golden, and the faces of them as faces of men,
8 and they had hairs as hairs of women, and the teeth of them as of lions were,
9 and they had breastplates as breastplates iron, and the sound of the wings of them as sound of chariots of horses many rushing into battle.
10 And they have tails like to scorpions, and stings was in the tails of them; and the authority of them to injure the men months five.
11 They have over themselves a king the messenger of the deep; a name to him in Hebrew, of Abaddon, and in the Greek a name he has of Apollyon.
12 The woe the one passed away; lo, comes more two woes after these.
13 And the sixth messenger sounded, and I heard voice one from the four horns of the altar of the golden of that in presence of the God,
14 saying to the sixth messenger the one having the trumpet: Loose thou the four messengers those having been bound by the river the great Euphrates.
15 And were loosed the four messengers those having been prepared for the hour and a day and a month and a year, so that they should kill the third of the men.
16 And the number of the armies of the cavalry, two myriads of myriads; I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision and those sitting of them, having breastplates fiery and hyacinthine and brimstonelike; and the heads of the horses as heads of lions, and out of the mouths of them goes out fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By the three plagues these were killed the third of the men, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone that going forth out of the mouths of them.
19 The for authority of the horses in the mouth of them is, and in the tails of them; the for tails of them like serpents, having heads; and with them they injure.
20 And the remaining ones of the men who not were killed by the plagues these, not reformed from the works of the hands of themselves, so that not they might worship the demons, and the idols the golden ones and the silver ones and the copper ones and the stone ones and the wooden ones, which neither to see are able nor to hear, nor to walk;
21 and not reformed from the murders of themselves, nor from the sorceries of themselves, nor from the fornication of themselves, nor from the thefts of themselves.
