The First Seal--Rider on White Horse

1 Then I saw when the 1Lamb broke one of the 2seven seals, and I heard one of the 3four living creatures saying as with a 4voice of thunder, "Come a." 2 I looked, and behold, a 5white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and 6a crown was given to him, and he went out 7conquering and to conquer.

The Second Seal--War

3 When He broke the second seal, I heard the 8second living creature saying, "Come b." 4 And another, 9a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to 10take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

The Third Seal--Famine

5 When He broke the third seal, I heard the 11third living creature saying, "Come c." I looked, and behold, a 12black horse; and he who sat on it had a 13pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the 14four living creatures saying, "A dquart of wheat for a edenarius, and three fquarts of barley for a gdenarius; and 15do not damage the oil and the wine."

The Fourth Seal--Death

7 When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the 16fourth living creature saying, "Come h." 8 I looked, and behold, an i17ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name 18Death; and 19Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, 20to kill with sword and with famine and with jpestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The Fifth Seal--Martyrs

9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw 21underneath the 22altar the 23souls of those who had been slain 24because of the word of God, and because of the 25testimony which they had maintained; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "26How long , O k27Lord, 28holy and true, lwill You refrain from 29judging and avenging our blood on 30those who dwell on the earth?" 11 And 31there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should 32rest for a little while longer, 33until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be 34completed also.

The Sixth Seal--Terror

12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great 35earthquake; and the 36sun became black as 37sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and 38the stars of the sky fell to the earth, 39as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 40The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and 41every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then 42the kings of the earth and the great men and the mcommanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they 43said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the npresence of Him 44who sits on the throne, and from the 45wrath of the Lamb; 17 for 46the great day of their wrath has come, and 47who is able to stand?"
