Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I saw, that the lamb had opened one of the seven seals. And I heard one of the four beasts saying, as a voice of thunder, Come, and see. 1 I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, "Come!"
2 And I saw, and lo! a white horse; and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given to him. And he went out overcoming, that he should overcome. 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast saying, Come, and see. 3 When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!"
4 And an other red horse went out; and it was given to him that sat on him [power], that he should take peace from the earth, and that they slay together themselves; and a great sword was given to him. 4 Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast saying, Come thou, and see [Come, and see]. And lo! a black horse; and he that sat on him had a balance in his hand. 5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.
6 And I heard as a voice in the middle of the four beasts, saying, A bilibre of wheat for a penny, and three bilibres of barley for a penny; and hurt thou not wine, nor oil [and hurt thou not wine, and oil]. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard a voice of the fourth beast saying, Come thou, and see. 7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!"
8 And lo! a pale horse; and the name was Death to him that sat on him, and hell followed him. And power was given to him on [upon] four parts of the earth, to slay with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with beasts of the earth. 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of men slain for the word of God, and for the witnessing that they had. 9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained.
10 And they cried with a great voice, and said [saying], How long thou, Lord, that art holy and true, deemest [thou] not, and vengest not our blood [and vengest our blood] of these that dwell in the earth? 10 They called out in a loud voice, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?"
11 And white stoles, for each soul a stole [And white stoles, to each soul a stole], were given to them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet a little time, till the number of their fellows [till the even-servants of them] and of their brethren be fulfilled, that be to be slain, as also they [were]. 11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.
12 And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo! a great earth-moving was made; and the sun was made black, as a sackcloth of hair, and all the moon was made as blood. 12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red,
13 And the stars of heaven felled down on the earth [And stars of heaven fell down upon the earth], as a fig tree sendeth his unripe figs, when it is moved of a great wind. 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.
14 And heaven went away, as a book wrapped in; and all the mountains and isles were moved from their places. 14 The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
15 And the kings of the earth, and princes, and tribunes, and rich, and strong, and each bondman, and free man, hid them(selves) in dens and stones of hills. 15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.
16 And they say to hills and to stones, Fall ye on us, and hide ye us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the lamb; 16 They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
17 for the great day of their wrath cometh, and who shall be able to stand? 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"
