REVELATION 9:1-12

1. Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. 2. He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3. Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4. They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5. And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. 6. And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. 7. The appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8. They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. 10. They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months. 11. They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. 12. The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.

REVELATION 8:8-13

8. The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9. and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10. The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11. The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. 12. The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way. 13. Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice, ``Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!"

REVELATION 8:1-7

1. When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. 3. Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. 4. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand. 5. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake. 6. And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them. 7. The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

REVELATION 7:1-17

1. After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. 2. And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the seal of the living God; and he cried out with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3. saying, ``Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads." 4. And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel: 5. from the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad twelve thousand, 6. from the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, from the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand, 7. from the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, from the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, from the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand, 8. from the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, from the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand were sealed. 9. After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; 10. and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, ``Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." 11. And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12. saying, ``Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen." 13. Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, ``These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?" 14. I said to him, ``My lord, you know." And he said to me, ``These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15. ``For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. 16. ``They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; 17. for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes."

REVELATION 6:1-17

1. Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, ``Come." 2. I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. 3. When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, ``Come." 4. And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. 5. When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, ``Come." I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, ``A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine." 7. When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ``Come." 8. I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. 9. When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; 10. and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, ``How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?" 11. And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also. 12. I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13. and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14. The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15. Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16. and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, ``Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17. for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
