RSV 2 The crack of whip, and rumble of wheel, galloping horse and bounding chariot! NIV 2 The crack of whips, the clatter of wheels, galloping horses and jolting chariots! RSV 3 Horsemen charging, flashing sword and glittering spear, hosts of slain, heaps of corpses, dead bodies without end--they stumble over the bodies! NIV 3 Charging cavalry, flashing swords and glittering spears! Many casualties, piles of dead, bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses-- RSV 4 And all for the countless harlotries of the harlot, graceful and of deadly charms, who betrays nations with her harlotries, and peoples with her charms.
