1 Once again I looked up - another strange sight! Four chariots charging out from between two mountains. The mountains were bronze.
2 The first chariot was drawn by red horses, the second chariot by black horses,
3 the third chariot by white horses, and the fourth chariot by dappled horses. All the horses were powerful.
4 I asked the Messenger-Angel, "Sir, what's the meaning here?"
5 The angel answered, "These are the four winds of heaven, which originate with the Master of the whole earth.
6 The black horses are headed north with the white ones right after them. The dappled horses are headed south."
7 The powerful horses galloped out, bursting with energy, eager to patrol through the earth. The Messenger-Angel commanded: "On your way! Survey the earth!" and they were off in every direction.
8 Then he called to me and said, "Look at them go! The ones going north are conveying a sense of my Spirit, serene and secure. No more trouble from that direction."
