0 When the fifth trumpet blew (Rev 9), how long were the locusts told to torment people?

Go in unto thy father's concubines, which he hath left to keep the house .... So they spread Absalom a tent upon the top of the house; and Absalom went in unto his father's concubines in the sight of all Israel. 2 Samuel 16:21

Trivia: Who had sex with David's ten concubines in the sight of all of Israel?

When the fifth trumpet blew (Rev 9), how long were the locusts told to torment people?


For five months

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
And 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.
And 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. Revelation 9:3
