1 Then I saw when the aLamb broke one of the bseven seals, and I heard one of the cfour living creatures saying as with a dvoice of thunder, "Come." 2 I looked, and behold, a awhite horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and ba crown was given to him, and he went out cconquering and to conquer. 3 When He broke the second seal, I heard the asecond living creature saying, "Come." 4 And another, aa red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to btake peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. 5 When He broke the third seal, I heard the athird living creature saying, "Come." I looked, and behold, a bblack horse; and he who sat on it had a cpair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the afour living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and bdo not damage the oil and the wine." 7 When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the afourth living creature saying, "Come." 8 I looked, and behold, an aashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name bDeath; and bHades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, cto kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. 9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw aunderneath the baltar the csouls of those who had been slain dbecause of the word of God, and because of the etestimony which they had maintained; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "aHow long, O bLord, choly and true, will You refrain from djudging and avenging our blood on ethose who dwell on the earth?" 11 And athere was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should brest for a little while longer, cuntil the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be dcompleted also. 12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great aearthquake; and the bsun became black as csackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and athe stars of the sky fell to the earth, bas a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 aThe sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and bevery mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then athe kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they asaid to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him bwho sits on the throne, and from the cwrath of the Lamb; 17 for athe great day of their wrath has come, and bwho is able to stand?"
