At the sounding of the fifth angel, a star falleth from heaven, to whom is given the key of the bottomless pit.
Revelation 9:1 And the fyfte angell blewe, & I sawe a starre fall from heaue vnto ye earth. And to him was geue the kaye of the bottomlesse pytt.
He openeth the pit, and there come forth locusts like scorpions.
Revelation 9:2 And he opened the bottomlesse pytt, and there arose the smoke of a greate fornace. And the Sonne, and ye ayer were darkned by the reason of the smoke of the pytt. Revelation 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locustes vpon the earth: and vnto the was geuen power as the scorpions of the earth haue power. Revelation 9:4 And it was sayde vnto them, that they shulde not hurt the grasse of the earth: nether eny grene thinge: nether eny tre: but onely those men which haue not the seale in their forhedes, Revelation 9:5 and to them was comaunded, that they shulde not kyll the, but that they shulde be vexed fyue monethes, and their payne was as the payne that cometh of a scorpion, when he hath stonge a man. Revelation 9:6 And in those dayes shal me seke deeth, and shal not fynde it: and shal desyre to dye, and death shal flye from them. Revelation 9:7 And the similitude of the locustes was lyke vnto horses prepared vnto battayll, and on their heades were as it were crownes, lyke vnto golde: and their faces were as it had bene the faces of men. Revelation 9:8 And they had heere as the heere of wemen. And their tethe were as the tethe of lyons. Revelation 9:9 And they had habbergions, as it were habbergions of yron. And the sounde of their wynges, was as ye sounde of charettes whe many horsses runne together to battayle. Revelation 9:10 And they had tayles lyke vnto scorpions, and there were stynges in their tayles. And their power was to hurt me fyue monethes. Revelation 9:11 And they had a kinge ouer them, which is the angel of the bottomlesse pyt, whose name in the hebrew tonge, is Abadon: but in the greke tonge, Apollion.
The first woe past.
Revelation 9:12 One wo is past, and beholde two woes come yet after this.
The sixth trumpet soundeth.
Revelation 9:13 And the sixte angel blewe, and I herde a voyce from the foure corners of the golden aultre which is before God,
Four angels are let loose, that were bound.
Revelation 9:14 sayenge to the sixte angel, which had the trompe: Lowse the foure angels, which are bounde in the greate ryuer Eufrates. Revelation 9:15 And ye foure angels were lowsed, which were prepared for an houre, for a daye, for a moneth, and for a yeare, for to slee the thyrde parte of men. Revelation 9:16 And the nombre of horsmen of warre, were twenty tymes x M. And I herde ye nombre of them. Revelation 9:17 And thus I sawe the horses in a vision, and them that sat on the hauynge fyry habbergions of a yalowe and brymstony color, and the heades of ye horses werre as the heades of lyons. And out of their mouthes went forth fyre, and smoke, and brymstone. Revelation 9:18 And of these thre was the thirde parte of men kylled: that is to saye, of fyre, smoke, and brymstone, which proceded out of the mouthes of the: Revelation 9:19 For their power was in their mouthes and in their tayles: for their tayles were like vnto serpetes, and had heades, and with the they dyd hurt: Revelation 9:20 And the remnaunt of the me which were not kylled by these plages, repeted not of the dedes of their hondes, yt they shulde not worshippe deuels, and ymages of golde, and syluer, and brasse, & stone, and of wod, which nether can se, nether heare, nether go. Revelation 9:21 Also they repented not of their murthur, and of their witchcraft, nether of their whordome, nether of their thefte.
