Zechariah 6 NLT

1 Then I looked up again and saw four chariots coming from between two bronze mountains.
2 The first chariot was pulled by red horses, the second by black horses,
3 the third by white horses, and the fourth by powerful dappled-gray horses.
4 “And what are these, my lord?” I asked the angel who was talking with me.
5 The angel replied, “These are the four spiritsa of heaven who stand before the Lord of all the earth. They are going out to do his work.
