Revelation 9:1-21, NLT
The Fifth Trumpet Brings the First Terror
1Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen to earth from the sky, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.*9:1 Or the abyss, or the underworld; also in 9:11.
3Then locusts came from the smoke and descended on the earth, and they were given power to sting like scorpions.
7The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. They had what looked like gold crowns on their heads, and their faces looked like human faces.
12The first terror is past, but look, two more terrors are coming!
The Sixth Trumpet Brings the Second Terror
13Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice speaking from the four horns of the gold altar that stands in the presence of God.
17And in my vision, I saw the horses and the riders sitting on them. The riders wore armor that was fiery red and dark blue and yellow. The horses had heads like lions, and fire and smoke and burning sulfur billowed from their mouths.
20But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk!
