The Fifth Seal--Martyrs

9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw 1underneath the 2altar the 3souls of those who had been slain 4because of the word of God, and because of the 5testimony which they had maintained;
10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "6How long *, O 7Lord, 8holy and true, will You refrain from 9judging and avenging our blood on 10those who dwell on the earth?"
11 And 11there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should 12rest for a little while longer, 13until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be 14completed also.
