Revelation 9 is the ninth chapter of the Book of Revelation or the Apocalypse of John in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. The book is traditionally attributed to John the Apostle, but the precise identity of the author remains a point of academic debate. In this chapter, the next two angels' trumpets are sounded, following the sounding of the first four trumpets in chapter 8. These two trumpets and the final trumpet, sounded in chapter 11, are sometimes called the "woe trumpets".
Some early manuscripts containing this chapter are:
- Papyrus 115 (ca. AD 275; extant verses 1-5, 7-16, 18-21)
- Papyrus 47 (3rd century)
- Papyrus 85 (4th century; extant verses 19-21)

The Fifth Trumpet (9:1–11)
- Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
- Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
- They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree 
- And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
The Sixth Trumpet (9:12–21)
- Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.
