When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, "Come!" a I looked, and there was a black horse! Its rider held a pair of scales in his hand,
and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's pay, b and three quarts of barley for a day's pay, c but do not damage the olive oil and the wine!"
