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.
In the first war-carriage were red horses; and in the second, black horses;
And in the third, white horses; and in the fourth, horses of mixed colour.
And I made answer and said to the angel who was talking to me, What are these, my lord?
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.
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.
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.
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.
