Again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and, behold, four chariots came out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
In the first chariot were red horses; in the second chariot black horses;
in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot dappled horses, all of them powerful.
Then I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?"
The angel answered me, "These are the four winds of the sky, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the eretz.
The one with the black horses goes out toward the north country; and the white went out after them; and the dappled went forth toward the south country."
The strong went out, and sought to go that they might walk back and forth through the eretz: and he said, "Go around and through the eretz!" So they walked back and forth through the eretz.
Then he called to me, and spoke to me, saying, "Behold, those who go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country."
