Then locusts came from the smoke and descended on the earth, and they were given power to sting like scorpions.
They were told not to kill them but to torture them for five months with pain like the pain of a scorpion sting.
The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. They had what looked like gold crowns on their heads, and their faces looked like human faces.
They wore armor made of iron, and their wings roared like an army of chariots rushing into battle.
