Revelation 7

 1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.    (KJV)

 (1)     “And after these things,
             behold, look and see:  I saw
             4 angels standing fast on the 
             4 Corners of the Earth,
             in order that the wind/air might not
             blow upon the Earth,
             nor upon the Inland Sea(s)/ Inland Lake(s) 
             and Ocean Shoreline(s),
             nor upon every tree.                 (AWPR)

 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,    (KJV)

            (2)  And behold, look and see:  
                   I saw another of the same kind of angel
                   coming up / ascending  from the first 
                   dawning horizon's sun rise,
                   having - possessing - accepting  
                   a seal that was impressed
                           [as though with a signet ring]
                   of the Living GOD;
                   and he cried out with a great noise / voice
                   to the 4 angels (to) who it was 
                   given over - bestowed upon - entrusted to
                   for them to do wrong - to hurt - to damage - to injure
                   the Earth and the Inland Lake(s) / Sea(s)

           (3)    'Do not do wrong - hurt - damage - injure  the Earth, 
                     nor the Inland Lake(s) / Sea(s) 
                     and Ocean Shoreline(s),
                     nor the trees, until (such a time as) which 
                     we may seal with a seal that is impressed

                      the slaves of our GOD

 9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;    (KJV)

          (9)   In the midst of / amongst these things,
                   behold, look and see:
                  I saw a multitudinous crowd
                  (the) which to reckon or number them
                  certainly no one, not even one, 
                  had the power - had the ability - had the 
                  resources - was able;
                  out of every ethnic nation and tribe,
                  and people of a common society and
                  language - tongue -dialect
                  standing fast in the face of - in the 
                  presence of - before  the Throne

                  and in the face of - in the 
                  presence of - before the Lamb
                  having been cast round about 
                  (with) white and shining robes,
                  and palms / palm-branches in the hands of them.    

 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.    (KJV)

          (10)  And they cry aloud as though hoarsely and urgently
                  in a clamorous outcry with a great noise / voice,
                       'Salvation - safety - deliverance 
                        to the GOD of us sitting upon the Throne, 
                        and to/unto the Lamb.' 

 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,    (KJV)

          (11)  And all the angels stood fast
                   all around / round about  the Throne
                  and the 4 Living Animalistic Creatures,
                  and they fall down prostrate  
                  in the face of - in the presence of - before  the Throne
                  upon (their) eye / face of (them)
                  and worshiped GOD adoringly with praises of the lips,

 13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?    (KJV)

                    one of the Presbyters / Elders says to me,
                        'These (are) those having been cast round about with 
                         the white and shining robes.'
                        'Who are they? And from where came forth they to appear?'

 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.    (KJV)

          (14)  And I said to him, 
                         'Lord / master / sir, 
                          you perceive -  you are acquainted with - you know.'

                  And he answered / told me,
                        'These are those coming forth

                         and they washed the cast-round-about 
                         [overflowing long] robes of them
                         and made them white and shining
                         in the blood of the Lamb,

 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.    (KJV)

          (15)  Through Whom / through this One are they 
                   in the face of - in the presence of - before 
                   the Throne of GOD,
                   and serve [perform religious duties, service, worship] 
                   Him ' day and night' / continually 
                   in the Temple / Dwelling-place of Him.
                   And the (One) sitting down upon the Throne
                   abode / spread his tent / tabernacled over them.

 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.    (KJV)

          (16)  (They will) certainly not 
                   hunger / long after food because of hunger 
                   any longer,
                   certainly not will they be dry or thirsty 
                   or ardently desire after  
                   any longer,
                   certainly not may not fall down upon them the sun,
                   certainly not all / every burning - scorching heat / light,

 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.   (KJV)

           (17)  Because the Lamb on the midst of the Throne
                    will Shepherd - care for - provide for them,
                    and will lead - guide - teach them
                    upon Living Wells / Fountains of water,
                    and will wipe / blot off every tear 
                    from the eyes of them' "

 Revelation 8

 1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.    (KJV)

          (1)    And when He opened the 7th Seal that was impressed
                    [as with a signet ring],
                  (there) came into being a silence with stillness in Heaven
                  [in what manner or way was] about half an hour.

 2And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.    (KJV)

          (2)   And behold, look and see, I saw the 7 Angels who
                  before the face of - in the presence of  GOD stood fast,
                  and were given - bestowed - entrusted
                  to them 7 Trumpets.


 3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.    (KJV)

          (3)   And another angel of the same kind
                 came forth and made (his) appearance,
                 and stood fast upon the Sacrificial Altar
                 having - possessing a
                  frankincense vessel / censer made of gold;
                 and was given - bestowed - entrusted
                  to him many incenses,
                 in order that he should give / offer
                 with the prayers - petitions / requests - vows
                 of all the holy set apart saints
                 upon the Sacrificial Altar of gold
                 in the face of - in the presence of - before the Throne. 

 4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.    (KJV)

          (4)   And ascended / went up the smoke of the incense
                  with the prayers - petitions/requests - vows
                  of the holy set apart saints
                  out of the (extended) hand of the angel
                  in the face of - in the presence of - before GOD.    

 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.    (KJV)

          (5)  And has taken - seized - accepted - possessed
                 the angel of the frankincense vessel/censer
                 and has made full/filled it from the
                 fire of the Sacrificial Altar
                 and cast it off into the Earth.
                 And occurred - happened - were sounds / voices
                  and thunders
                 and (streaking) lightnings and shaking.    (AWPR)

 6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.    (KJV)

          (6)   And the 7 Angels,
                  the (ones) having - holding - possessing
                  the 7 Trumpets
                  made ready / prepared themselves
                  in order that they might (sound the ) Trumpet.    

  7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.    (KJV)

          (7)   And the 1st Angel trumpeted,
                 and (there) came into being hail
                  and fire being mixed / mingled with blood;
                 and it was cast off into the Earth,
                 and the third of the trees were
                  consumed / burnt up / burned down;
                 and ALL green grass / green herb(s)
                 were consumed / burnt up / burnt down.    (AWPR)

 8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;    (KJV)

          (8)   And the 2nd Angel trumpeted,
                  and in what manner or way / as it were
                  a very great mountain with a burning fire
                  was cast off into the sea,       
                  and the third of the sea became blood,

 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.     (KJV)

          (9)    And died off the third of the Creatures living
                   -- those having / possessing souls -- 
                   and the third of the ships
                   were thoroughly defiled - corrupted - destroyed 

 10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

           (10)  And the 3rd Angel trumpeted,
                   and fell down, plummeting out of Heaven
                   a great burning luminary / star as a torch / lamp.                    

                  And it fell down plummeting upon the third  of the 
                  flowing waters - creeks - streams - rivers,
                  and upon the fountains of waters.

 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.    (KJV)

           (11)  And the name of the 
                   luminary / star is spoken as / said (to be)
                   Aphinthos - Wormwood - Gall - Bile.
                   And the third part of the waters became into
                   Aphinthon - Wormwood - Gall - Bile,
                   and many men died out / from the waters,
                   because they were made bitter. 

 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.    (KJV)

         (12)  And the 4th Angel trumpeted,
                  and was struck / smitten  the third part of the sun 
                  and the third of the stars / luminaries
                  in order that the third of them
                  might be deprived of light / cast into darkness;
                  and the third of the day might not 
                  be illuminated / lightened;
                  also, the night resembling in like manner, likewise.    

 13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!    (KJV)

          (13)  And behold, look and see:  
                   I saw one angel [winged and ] flying
                   in the middle of the heavens, saying with a great voice:
                        'Woe - Alas - Calamity - Disaster! 
                         Woe - Alas - Calamity - Disaster!  
                         Woe - Alas - Calamity - Disaster to those
                          dwelling in permanent structures upon the Earth
                          from out (of) the remaining Voices of the Trumpet
                          being at the point of - being about to - being ready 
                          to Trumpet!' 


Chapter 8 comments:  

verse 8:     a very great mountain with a burning fire was cast off into the sea,  
                [likely the Mediterranean is meant]

Cf.      "(And) IN THAT DAY,
             YHVeH shall visit with 
             His tearing*ankle*that*comes*fiercely*down,
             and (with His) 
                        [angels and saints, as though a] - - 

             hardened*strong*stubborn*and*severe* Sword
             on the Leviathan, the fleeing Serpent; 
             even on the Leviathan, the Serpent      
             and He shall slay the Dragon 
                                   (of the Fig Trees [LXX: ton sykon] )
             which is in (the midst of)
            the Western Sea.” [the Mediterranean]
                                      (Isaiah 27:1 - AWPR, my translation)

Revelation Chapter 8, verse 9:  those having / possessing souls --   
Re: Genesis 1:20-21 (LITV).  
 20 ¶ And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens.
21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
(Literal Translation of the Holy Bible - LITV,  Copyright © 1976 - 2000 by Jay P. Green, Sr.)

The Greek word of interest here in Revelation 8:9,  psuchasis  translated as "souls", refers to those animal forms  that have the ability to blow or breathe.

verse 9, continued:
              and the third of the ships  were thoroughly defiled - corrupted - destroyed 
              [is to be read in the context of what is inferred by earlier verses, that these ships are defiled - corrupted - destroyed by the Sea of blood.  One possibility is that it could be an intense new strain of red tide, one that acts as a consuming and leprous / toxic mold that takes over a vessel, and is either immune or very highly  resistant  to chemical deterrents and treatments.]

verse 10:  and fell down, plummeting out of Heaven  a great burning luminary / star as a torch / lamp. 
       Specifically that the fall and impact will occur and likely be contained to only that part of the world in which it is night-time when this event comes into existence. I calculate that from the time Anti-Christ blasphemously  proclaims that he is "poof" now Israel's GOD to the time of impact is likely to be somewhere between 6-12 hours, projecting the proclamation is done around 3 pm in the afternoon, and nighttime darkness needs to fall only upon the full width of the Mediterranean Sea for the Asteroid to have permission to strike, followed by a tidal wave traveling at approximately the speed of sound aimed directly at the Eastern Mediterranean shoreline as its directional reason of having come into existence.


Cf. Matthew 24 (LITV) 
15 Then when you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (the one reading, let him understand), Dan. 11:31; 12:11
16 then let those in Judea flee into the mountains;
17 the one on the housetop, let him not go down to take anything out of his house;
18 and the one in the field, let him not turn back to take his garment.
19 But woe to the ones having a child in womb, and to those suckling in those days!
20 And pray that your flight will not occur in winter nor in a sabbath.
21 For there will be great affliction, such as has not happened from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.

In verse 18, the reason for not stopping to take a garment is that by the utterance of Anti-Christ to say he is the Deity of all Creation and of Israel, it is a signal for the every pseudo-Palestinian (the neo-Arab and former Edomite / Jordanian by another name) to in unison cut the Jews off and annihilate them once and for all as stated in Obadiah

10 ¶ Shame shall cover you from the violence against your brother Jacob, and you shall be cut off forever.
13 You should not have entered into My people's gate on the day of his calamity; also you should not have looked on his evil on the day of his calamity, nor should you have sent out against his force in the day of his calamity.
14 Nor should you have stood on the crossways to cut off those of him who escaped, nor should you have shut up his survivors in the day of distress.
15 For the day of Jehovah is near on all the nations: As you have done, it shall be done to you; your reward shall return on your head!   (LITV)

Even so, those who pseudo-Palestinians and their allies who in that day will spend hours in their attempted national massacre of all the Jews will have for their reward the shame of a Heaven sent Asteroid induced  Tidal Wave upon their heads to send them all down to hell for attempting the annihilation of GOD's Chosen People, where as the waters of the Red Sea drowned the Hyksos army pursuing Israel, so will all who pursue Israel drown by tidal wave at the start of the Great Tribulation period, and this will include those Jews who do not flee hard or fast enough to where Messiah Yeshua directs them as well.   'Nuff said.

Revelation 9  

 1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.    (KJV)

          (1)   And the 5th Angel trumpeted,
                  and behold, look and see:  
                  I saw a star / luminary out of heaven
                  having plummeted / fallen onto the Earth.
                  And was given - bestowed - entrusted to him
                  the key to the [dry] well / pit of the Abyss. 

 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.   (KJV)

          (2)   And he open-opened the [dry] well / pit of the Abyss,
                 and ascended / went-up smoke out of the [dry] well / pit
                 like as smoke of a great furnace 
                 [barreling forth and upwards].

                 And the sun was deprived of light - being darkened,
                 and the air from out of the smoke of the pit.    (AWPR)

 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.    (KJV)

          (3)   And out of the smoke came forth / proceeded
                  locusts into the Earth,
                  and was given - bestowed - entrusted to them
                  permission - authority - the removal of hindrance
                  as having - possessing
                  permission - authority - the removal of hindrance
                  (as) scorpions of the Earth.     (AWPR)

 4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.     (KJV)

          (4) And was definitively spoken - uttered -instructed to them
                 in order that they should not do wrong - hurt -damage  
                (to) the grass of the Earth,
                certainly not (to) every green thing, 
                certainly not every tree,
                except maybe/perhaps the men alone
                only (those) who certainly do NOT 
                 have -hold -possess the Seal that is impressed 
                 [as with a signet ring]
                 of GOD upon the foreheads / above the eye of them.    

 5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.    (KJV)

          (5)    And it was given - bestowed - entrusted to them
                   in order that they should not kill them,
                  but rather/ on the contrary  in order that
                  they should be tortured - punished - afflicted 
                  with (continual) physical pain 5 months,
                  and the torture -punishment -affliction 
                  of (continual) physical pain
                  of them as (the) torture - punishment - affliction
                  of (continual) physical pain
                  of a scorpion when it strikes / stings a man.   (AWPR)

 6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.    (KJV)

          (6)   And in those days
                  men will seek after and strive to find death
                  and they certainly will NOT find it,
                  and they will have their 
                  affections - lusts - desires - longing to die,
                  and death will escape / flee from them.     

 7And 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.   (KJV) 

          (7)   And the likeness - resemblance - shape of the locusts
                 just like - of the same kind in appearance as
                 horses having been made ready;
                 and upon the heads of them as crowns
                 just like - of the same kind in appearance as gold,
                 and the faces of them as the faces of men.     

 8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.    (KJV)

           (8)   And they possessed / had hairs
                    as (the) [long] hairs of women,
                   and the teeth of them were as lions.  

  9And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.    (KJV)

           (9)   And they possessed / had chest plates
                  as (if they were) chest plates of iron;
                  and the sound of the wings of them
                  (was) as the sound of many chariots of horses
                  running into hostilities / into war.    (AWPR)

 10And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.    (KJV)

          (10)   And they possessed-had tails
                   just like - of the same appearance as Scorpions,
                   and the
                   piercing pricks - piercing goads - puncturing stingers
                   were in the tails of them;
                   and the permission - liberty - power to do or not do
                   of them
                   to do wrong - hurt - harm - damage (to) men
                   (was for) 5 months.    (AWPR)

  11And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.    (KJV)

             (11)  And they possessed - had a king over them,
                     the Angel of the Abyss:
                    (the) name to him in Hebrew, Abaddon;
                    and in the Greek (the) name he holds - possesses
                    is Apollyon.       (AWPR)

 12One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.    (KJV)

           (12)  The first Woe - Calamity - Disaster
                    has withdrawn - departed - has gone away.
                    Behold, look and see, (there) yet comes forth
                    two woes - calamities - disasters after these things.

 13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,    (KJV)

          (13)  And the 6th Angel trumpeted:
                   and I heard a voice sounding,
                   one out of the 4 Horns of the Sacrificial Altar of gold 
                   in the face of - in the presence of - before GOD.    

 14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.     (KJV)

          (14)  saying / speaking to the 6th Angel
                   who holds - possesses - has the Trumpet,
                         'Unbind - untie - loose that which binds the 4 Angels,
                          those having been fastened - bound upon the river, 
                          the great Euphrates.'         (AWPR) 

 15And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.    (KJV)

          (15)  And the 4 Angels were
                   unbound - untied - unfastened - loosed,
                  those having been made ready - prepared
                   for the hour and day
                  and month and year, 
                  in order that they should put to death
                   the third of men / mankind. 

 16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.    (KJV)

          (16)  And the number of the military soldiers of the Cavalry
                   two myriads of myriads / 200,000,000
                   and I heard the number of them.     (AWPR) 

 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.    (KJV)

          (17)  And in this manner, behold, look and see;
                   I beheld the horses in the vision and
                    those sitting down upon them,
                   holding - possessing - having chest plates
                    glittering flaming fire
                   and deep blue / hyacinth and
                    sulfurous flames with smoke;
                   and the heads of the horses as heads as heads of lions;
                   and out of the mouths of them
                   proceeds - goes out - goes forth
                   fire and smoke and sulfurous flames with smoke. 

 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.    (KJV)

          (18)  Beneath - under the three (of) these were put to death 
                  the third of men / mankind
                  from the fire and from the smoke 
                  and from the sulfurous flames with smoke
                  proceeding - going out - going forth
                  from the mouths of them.  

 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.     (KJV)

          (19)  For the removal of
                    hindrance - permission - authority of them
                   is in the mouth of them,
                   and in the tails of them,
                   for the tails of them are one and
                   the same as - of the same kind as - just like
                   having / possessing heads,
                   and in them they do wrong - hurt - damage.    

 20And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:    (KJV)

          (20)  And the rest of the men / of mankind
                   who were certainly not killed
                    in the stroke - blow - plague - calamity,
                   these certainly repented not,
                   these certainly did not change their minds
                   of the works- performance - labors of their hands,
                   in order that they may not 
                   worship - give homage / respect - fall down
                    before demons  and images / idols: 
                   gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood,
                   which certainly do not see nor are
                    able - capable to hear, nor to walk;

 21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.    (KJV)

          (21)  And they certainly repented NOT,
                  they certainly did NOT change their minds to turn from
                  the murders - slaughters - slayings of them,
                  nor of the sexual sins of them,
                  nor of their stealings / thefts.   


A Couple of my brief comments on Revelation 9:  

Note on verse 6 ff:     Verse 6 in light of this chapter and all that goes on,  is horrifying in some respects.  This verse reads  as if "Death takes a 5 month holiday" and creates a time of the when humanity will experience 5 months when there will be living dead or zombies of those who cannot die until a specified hour and day and month and year.   Because the locusts cannot feed on any green thing, or any tree, and the focus on their teeth as lions,  it seems to me that the locusts are permitted to feed off every human not having the seal of GOD in his forehead, and the humans suffering these attacks will be forced to live in such unbearable pain.  With certainty, the 144,000 of Revelation Chapter 7 are excluded, as also are the 2 Great Witnesses, whose arrival and ministry we shall see revealed in Revelation 11.   In effect, the horror movies that mockingly portray zombies with dead flesh and multi-pound chunks bitten out of them, might actually be ironically and horrifying accurate but for the lacking of  including the demon locusts from hell feeding off of them, tearing away those chunks of flesh.  Of those who loved zombie horror flicks and laughed while despising and rejecting Jesus, it seems at that time, it will be GOD’s time to laugh at them.   Hell is not a joke, and this Scripture was written to warn humanity that they might believe willingly into Jesus Christ now, and pass from Judgment into eternal life, and avoid such horror altogether, whether when they pass away, or in the Rapture.       

Note on verse 17:   The ancient use of hyacinth refers to a  blue color.  Modern usage of hyacinth refers to reddish-orange and relabels it as jacinth.  I am keeping to the intent of the ancients and as it is written in the Koine Greek texts and the most likely color meant by John. He likely saw blued armored steel and machine gun fire, but that is only a subjective guess in regard to that one point.

Note on 21:  The Greek suggests that the thefts can also be applied to those who steal from corpses as well as from the living by stealth.
