And the 5th angel sounded and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the earth. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him. He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, out of it came locusts, they had power like scorpions. They were told that they should hurt only those people who don’t have a seal on their foreheads. They should be tormented for five months. Just like the scorpion does when it stings The people seek death but they don't find it. Death flees from them.
The locusts are like warhorses with gold crowns on their heads. Their faces were like people’s faces. They have hair like women's hair, teeth like lions, and breastplates of iron. In their tails they have power. They have over them a king, (Hebrew) Abaddon, (Greek) Apollyon.
