I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.
Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from trees shaken by mighty winds.
And the sky was rolled up like a scroll and taken away. And all of the mountains and all of the islands disappeared.
Then the kings of the earth, the rulers, the generals, the wealthy people, the people with great power, and every slave and every free person -- all hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains.
And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.
For the great day of their wrath has come, and who will be able to survive?"
