1The fifth angel blew his trumpet. Then I saw an evil angel. He was like a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. He was given {Someone gave him} the key to the shaft that descended …to the underworld/to the deep dark pit†.

2When he opened that shaft, smoke arose from it like smoke from a great burning furnace. The smoke prevented anyone from seeing the light of the sun and the sky.

3Locusts came out of the smoke onto the earth. They were given {God gave them} power to sting people, like scorpions sting people.

4God told the locusts that they should not harm the grass of the earth, nor any plants, nor any tree. God said that they should harm only those people who did not have a mark on the forehead to show that they belonged to God.

5God did not allow the locusts to kill those people. Instead, he allowed them to continue torturing people for five months. When they tortured people, the pain those people felt was like the pain a scorpion causes when it stings someone.

6During the time when the locusts torture rebellious people, the pain will be so bad that people will want to find a way to die, but they will not find [PRS] any way. They will long to die, but they will not be able to die [PRS].

7The locusts looked like horses that are ready for battle. They had on their heads what looked like golden crowns. Their faces were like the faces of people.

8They had long hair like the long hair of women. Their teeth were strong, like lions’ teeth.

9They wore metal breastplates. When they were flying, their wings made a noise like a roar when many horses pull chariots as they are rushing into battle.

10They had tails like tails of scorpions by which they stung people. Their power to harm people during those five months was in their tails.

11The king who ruled over them was the angel of the underworld. His name in the Hebrew language is Abaddon. In the Greek language it is Apollyon. Both of those names mean ‘Destroyer’.

12That ended the first terrible event. Be aware that two tragic events are still to come.

When the sixth angel blew his trumpet, a third of the rebellious people on earth died. But the rest

13The sixth angel blew his trumpet. Then I heard a voice from the four corners of the golden altar that is in God’s presence.

14It was saying to the sixth angel, the one who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels whom I have bound at the great river Euphrates.”

15The four angels were released, those who had been {He released the four angels, whom God had} kept ready for that exact hour of that day, of that month, of that year. They were released {He released them} in order that they might enable their soldiers to kill a third of the rebellious people.

16The number of the soldiers riding on horses that did that was two hundred million. I heard someone say how many there were.

17In the vision I saw what the horses and the beings that rode them looked like. They wore breastplates that were red like fire, dusky blue like smoke, and yellow like sulfur. The heads of the horses were like the heads of lions. From their mouths came fire, smoke, and fumes of burning sulfur.

18Those three things—the fire, the smoke, and the burning sulfur from the horses’ mouths —killed a third of the rebellious people.

19The power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails. Their tails have heads like snakes by which they harm people.

20The rest of the rebellious people, those who were not killed by the fire and smoke and burning sulfur, did not turn from their sinful behavior. They did not stop worshipping the idols that they had made with their own hands. They did not stop worshipping demons and idols that were made of gold, of silver, of bronze, of stone, and of wood, even though they are idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk.

21They did not stop murdering people, or practicing sorcery, or acting in sexually immoral ways, or stealing things.
