Revelation 6:12-17

MSG 12 I watched while he ripped off the sixth seal: a bone-jarring earthquake, sun turned black as ink, moon all bloody, NIV 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, MSG 13 stars falling out of the sky like figs shaken from a tree in a high wind, NIV 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. MSG 14 sky snapped shut like a book, islands and mountains sliding this way and that. NIV 14 The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. MSG 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, NIV 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. MSG 16 calling out to mountains and rocks, "Refuge! Hide us from the One Seated on the Throne and the wrath of the Lamb! NIV 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! MSG 17 The great Day of their wrath has come - who can stand it?" NIV 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"
