1 And again lifting up my eyes I saw four war-carriages coming out from between the two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
2 In the first war-carriage were red horses; and in the second, black horses;
3 And in the third, white horses; and in the fourth, horses of mixed colour.
4 And I made answer and said to the angel who was talking to me, What are these, my lord?
5 And the angel, answering, said to me, These go out to the four winds of heaven from their place before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The carriage in which are the black horses goes in the direction of the north country; the white go to the west; and those of mixed colour go in the direction of the south country.
7 And the red ones go to the east; and they made request that they might go up and down through the earth: and he said, Go up and down through the earth. So they went up and down through the earth.
8 Then crying out to me, he said, See, those who are going to the north country have given rest to the spirit of the Lord in the north country.
