Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of 1the seven seals, and I heard 2one of the four living creatures say 3with a voice like thunder, 4"Come!"
And I looked, and behold, 5a white horse! And 6its rider had a bow, and 7a crown was given to him, and he came out 8conquering, and to conquer.
When he opened the second seal, I heard 9the second living creature say, "Come!"
And out came another horse, 10bright red. Its rider was permitted 11to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.
When he opened the third seal, I heard the 12third living creature say, "Come!" And I looked, and behold, 13a black horse! And its rider had 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, 14"A quarta of wheat for a denarius,b and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and 15do not harm the oil and wine!"
