1. Then the Fifth Angel Sounded — and I Saw a Star Fallen from the Sky to the Earth, which was Symbolical of Satan, the Devil. And to him was Given the Key to the Bottomless Pit of Materialism, whereby he and his Servants could Invent all Kinds of Abominations for the Sake of Getting Gain, at the Expense of Clean Air, Pure Water, and Good Foods, which are Necessary for Good Health and True Happiness. 2. And he Opened the Bottomless Pit, and Smoke Arose Out of the Pit like the Smoke of a Great Furnace. And the Sunlight and the Air were Darkened beCause of the Smoke of the Pit. 3. Then, Out of the Smoke came Things as Numerous as Locusts upon the Earth, which were Weapons of Satan, the Devil. And to them was Given Power, even as the Scorpions of the Earth have Power to Sting and Poison People. 4. They were Commanded not to Harm the Grass of the Land, nor any Green Thing, nor any Tree; but, only those Men who do not have the Seal of God on their Foreheads. 5. And they were not Given Authority to Kill them, but only to Torment them for Five Months. And their Torment was like the Torment of a Scorpion when it Strikes a Man, which is very Painful. 6. Therefore, during those Days Men will Seek Death and will not Find it; they will Desire to Die, and Death will Flee from them: beCause of the Fear of what will become of them when God Judges them, and Sends their Spirits into Wicked Worlds that are Seven Times as Evil as this World! 7. And the Shapes of the Locusts were like Horses that are Prepared for Battle with Armor; and on their Heads were Crowns of something like Gold, and their Faces were like the Faces of Men with Eyes, Noses, and Mouths. 8. They had Hair like Women's Hair, and their Teeth were like Lions' Teeth. 9. And they had Breastplates like Breastplates of Iron, and the Sound of their Wings was like the Sound of Chariots with many Horses Running into Battle. 10. They had Tails that Curled Up like Scorpions, and there were Stings in their Tails. And their Power was to Hurt Men for Five Months. 11. And they had as their King Over them One who is the Angel of the Bottomless Pit, whose Name in Hebrew is Abaddon; but, in Greek, he has the Name Apollyon, which is the Destroyer. 12. One Woe is Past. Behold, still two more Woes are Coming after those Things.
13. Then the Sixth Angel Sounded — and I Heard a Voice from the Four Horns of the Golden Altar, which is in front of God, saying to the Sixth Angel who had the Trumpet, "Release the Four Angels who are Bound at the Great River Euphrates.'' 15. So, the Four Angels, who had been Prepared for the Hour and Day and Month and Year, were Released to Kill a Third of Mankind. 16. Now, the Number of the Armies of the Horsemen was two hundred million, and I Heard the Number of them. 17. And thus I Saw the Armored Horses in the Vision — and those who Sat on them had Breastplates of Fiery Red, Hyacinth Blue, and Sulfur Yellow; and the Heads of the Horses were like the Heads of Lions, which Roared; and Out of the Holes of their Anuses came Fire, Smoke, and Burning Stinking Sulfur, which Smelled something like Rotten Eggs, which made me Sick just to Smell it. 18. By those Three Plagues a Third of Mankind was Killed by the Fire and by the Smoke and by the Stinking Sulfur, which came Out of the Mouths of their Anuses. 19. For their Power is within their Stomachs, and the Smoke from them is Issued from their Anuses and from their Tails: because their Tails are like Serpents, having Heads at the Front End with Fangs, and they Spew Out Smoke at the Tail End; and with those Machines they do Great Harm: because they Fly like Locusts. 20. But, the Remainder of Mankind, who were not Killed by those Plagues, did not Repent of the Works of their Hands, so that they should not Worship Demons, and Idols of Gold, Silver, Brass, Stone, and Wood, which can neither See nor Hear nor Walk; and they did not Repent of their Murders nor of their Druggeries nor of their Sexual Immorality nor their Thefts.
