1The opening of six of the seals in order, and what followed thereupon.
1And 1I saw when the Lamb 2opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were 3the noise of thunder, 4one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2And I saw, and behold 1a white horse: 2and he that sat on him 3had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
31And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the 2second beast say, Come and see.
4And there went out 1another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5And when 1he had opened the third seal, I heard the 2third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a 3black horse; and he that sat on him had 4a pair of balances in his hand.
6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and 1see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of 1the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8And I looked, and behold 1a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given aunto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill 2with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
9And when 1he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the 2altar the souls of them 3that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10And 1they cried with a loud voice, saying, 2How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11And 1white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until 2their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, 1there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13And the 1stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her auntimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14And 1the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; 2and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
151And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
161And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of 2him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
171For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
