[Revelation 6]

     6:1 And I saw that the Lamb opened one out of the seven seals and I heard one out of the four living creatures saying like a voice of thunder, Come and behold! 6:2 And behold a white horse and he who sits upon it holding a bow, and a crown was given to him and he came forth overcoming and in order that he might overcome.

     6:3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. 6:4And there came forth, another horse of fire, and to the one who sits upon it was given to take peace out of the earth, in order that they should slaughter one another and a great sword was given to him.

     6:5 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come and behold. And behold, I saw a black horse and he who sits upon it has a balance in his hand. 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A liter-container of grain for a denarius and three liter-containers of barley for a denarius, and do not hurt the oil and the wine.

     6:7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come and behold. 6:8 And behold, a pale-green horse and he who sits upon him, his name was Death, and Hades was following with him. And there was given to him authority over the fourthpart of the earth, to kill with* a long-sword and with* famine and with* death and by the beasts of the earth.

     6:9 And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who have been slaughtered because of the word of God and because of the testimony of the lamb which they were holding to. 6:10 And they cried out with a loud voice, saying, Until when, O holy and true Master, do you not judge and avenge our blood from those who dwell upon the earth? 6:11And a white robe was given to each, and it was said to them, in order that they should still rest themselves for a time, until both their fellow bondservants and their brothers and those who are about to be killed as they were also, should be fulfilled.

     6:12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal and a great earthquake happened, and the sun became black like hairy sackcloth and the whole moon became like blood; 6:13 and the stars of the heaven fell to the earth, like a fig tree, having cast its unripe figswhile being shaken by a great wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed like a scroll being coiled up, and every mountain and everyisland were moved out of their places. 6:15 And the kings of the earth and the great-men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every bondservant and free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall* upon us and hide* us from the face of the one who is sitting upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb; 6:17 for* the great day of his wrath has come, and who is able to stand?
