When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, 1there was a great earthquake, and 2the sun became black as 3sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
and 4the stars of the sky fell to the earth 5as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale.
6The sky vanished 7like a scroll that is being rolled up, and 8every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, 9hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
10calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of 11him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,
for 12the great day of their wrath has come, and 13who can stand?"
