The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
12 I watched while he ripped off the sixth seal: a bone-jarring earthquake, sun turned black as ink, moon all bloody, 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 stars falling out of the sky like figs shaken from a tree in a high 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 sky snapped shut like a book, islands and mountains sliding this way and that. 14 The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
15 And then pandemonium, everyone and his dog running for cover - kings, princes, generals, rich and strong, along with every commoner, slave or free. They hid in mountain caves and rocky dens, 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 calling out to mountains and rocks, "Refuge! Hide us from the One Seated on the Throne and 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 The great Day of their wrath has come - who can stand it?" 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"
