And I lifted up mine eyes again, and saw, and behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
and in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled, strong a horses.
And I spoke and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord?
And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing b before the Lord of all the earth.
That in which are the black horses goeth forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth towards the south country;
and the strong go forth, and seek to go that they may walk to and fro through the earth. And he said, Go, walk to and fro through the earth. And they walked to and fro through the earth.
And he cried unto me, and spoke unto me, saying, See, these that go forth towards the north country have quieted my spirit c in the north country.
