Locusts come forth from the bottomless pit. The vision of the army of horsemen.
 And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit.
Et quintus angelus tuba cecinit : et vidi stellam de caelo cecidisse in terram, et data est ei clavis putei abyssi.
 And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit.
Et aperuit puteum abyssi : et ascendit fumus putei, sicut fumus fornacis magnae : et obscuratus est sol, et aer de fumo putei :
 And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power:
et de fumo putei exierunt locustae in terram, et data est illis potestas, sicut habent potestatem scorpiones terrae :
 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads.
et praeceptum est illis ne laederent foenum terrae, neque omne viride, neque omnem arborem : nisi tantum homines, qui non habent signum Dei in frontibus suis :
 And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man.
et datum est illis ne occiderent eos : sed ut cruciarent mensibus quinque : et cruciatus eorum, ut cruciatus scorpii cum percutit hominem.
 And in those days men shall seek death, and shall not find it: and they shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them.
Et in diebus illis quaerent homines mortem, et non invenient eam : et desiderabunt mori, et fugiet mors ab eis.
 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle: and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold: and their faces were as the faces of men.
Et similitudines locustarum, similes equis paratis in praelium : et super capita earum tamquam coronae similes auro : et facies earum tamquam facies hominum.
 And they had hair as the hair of women; and their teeth were as lions:
Et habebant capillos sicut capillos mulierum. Et dentes earum, sicut dentes leonum erant :
 And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was as the noise of chariots and many horses running to battle.
et habebant loricas sicut loricas ferreas, et vox alarum earum sicut vox curruum equorum multorum currentium in bellum :
 And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them
et habebant caudas similes scorpionum, et aculei erant in caudis earum : et potestas earum nocere hominibus mensibus quinque :
 A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans,
et habebant super se regem angelum abyssi cui nomen hebraice Abaddon, graece autem Apollyon, latine habens nomen Exterminans.
 One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.
Vae unum abiit, et ecce veniunt adhuc duo vae post haec.
 And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet: and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God,
Et sextus angelus tuba cecinit : et audivi vocem unam ex quatuor cornibus altaris aurei, quod est ante oculos Dei,
 Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates.
dicentem sexto angelo, qui habebat tubam : Solve quatuor angelos, qui alligati sunt in flumine magno Euphrate.
 And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.
Et soluti sunt quatuor angeli, qui parati erant in horam, et diem, et mensem, et annum, ut occiderent tertiam partem hominum.
 And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them.
Et numerus equestris exercitus vicies millies dena millia. Et audivi numerum eorum.
 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone.
Et ita vidi equos in visione : et qui sedebant super eos, habebant loricas igneas, et hyacinthinas, et sulphureas, et capita eorum erant tamquam capita leonum : et de ore eorum procedit ignis, et fumus, et sulphur.
 And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
Et ab his tribus plagis occisa est tertia pars hominum de igne, et de fumo, et sulphure, quae procedebant de ore ipsorum.
 For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt.
Potestas enim equorum in ore eorum est, et in caudis eorum, nam caudae eorum similes serpentibus, habentes capita : et in his nocent.
 And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Et ceteri homines, qui non sunt occisi in his plagis, neque poenitentiam egerunt de operibus manuum suarum, ut non adorarent daemonia, et simulacra aurea, et argentea, et aerea, et lapidea, et lignea, quae neque videre possunt, neque audire, neque ambulare,
 Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts.
et non egerunt poenitentiam ab homicidiis suis, neque a veneficiis suis, neque a fornicatione sua, neque a furtis suis.
