New Testament

Revelation Chapter 9


The fifth blew, one opened the bottomless pit,
Dark smoke came out - the sun and moon were hid by it -
From the smoke locusts came, five months to torment men,
Save those with God's seal in their foreheads, stinging them,
With crowns like gold, a human-like face, horse in shape,
Hair like woman's, lion-like teeth, iron breastplate,
Wings noisy like chariots; the name Abaddon
Their angel's in Hebrew, in Greek Apollyon.
The sixth blew - loosed by the river Euphrates, four
Slew a third of humans with ten million score
Horsemen, with lion-like heads, from whose mouths fire shot
And with tails like serpents, but men repented not.
