Fifth Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit

Revelation

Rev 9:1  And the fifth angel sounded. And I saw a star fall from the heaven to the earth, and it was given the key of the abyss.
Rev 9:2  And it opened the bottomless pit. And there arose a smoke out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun and air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:3  And out of the smoke came forth locusts onto the earth. And authority was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have authority.
Rev 9:4  And they were commanded not to hurt the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads.
Rev 9:5  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months. And their torment was like a scorpion’s torment when he stings a man.
Rev 9:6  And in those days men will seek death and will not find it. And they will long to die, and death will flee from them.
Rev 9:7  And the shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for battle. And on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
Rev 9:8  And they had hairs like the hairs of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions.
Rev 9:9  And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron. And the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
Rev 9:10  And they had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. And their authority was to hurt men five months.
Rev 9:11  And they had a king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in Greek his name is Apollyon.
Rev 9:12  The first woe is past. Behold, after these things yet come two woes.
