Revelation of John 6

The First Seal— Rider on White Horse

1Then I saw when the a  Lamb broke one of the b  seven seals, and I heard one of the c  four living creatures saying as with a d  voice of thunder, “Come
One early ms reads and see
.”
2I looked, and behold, a f  white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and g  a crown was given to him, and he went out h  conquering and to conquer.

The Second Seal— War

3When He broke the second seal, I heard the i  second living creature saying, “Come
One early ms reads and see
.”
4And another k  a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to l  take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

The Third Seal— Famine

5When He broke the third seal, I heard the m  third living creature saying, “Come
One early ms reads and see
.” I looked, and behold, a o  black horse; and he who sat on it had a p  pair of scales in his hand.
6And I heard something like a voice in the center of the q  four living creatures saying, “A
Gr choenix; i.e. a dry measure almost equal to a qt
quart of wheat for a
The denarius was equivalent to a day’s wages
denarius, and three
Gr choenix; i.e. a dry measure almost equal to a qt
quarts of barley for a
The denarius was equivalent to a day’s wages
denarius; and v  do not damage the oil and the wine.”

The Fourth Seal— Death

7When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the w  fourth living creature saying, “Come
One early ms reads and see
.”
8I looked, and behold, an
Or sickly pale
,
z  ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name aa  Death; and ab  Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth ac  to kill with sword and with famine and with
Or death
pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The Fifth Seal— Martyrs

9When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw ae  underneath the af  altar the ag  souls of those who had been slain ah  because of the word of God, and because of the ai  testimony which they had maintained; 10and they cried out with a loud voice, saying aj  How long, O
Or Master
,
al  Lord am  holy and true
Lit do You not judge and avenge
will You refrain from ao  judging and avenging our blood on ap  those who dwell on the earth?”
11And aq  there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should ar  rest for a little while longer, as  until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be at  completed also.

The Sixth Seal— Terror

12I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great au  earthquake; and the av  sun became black as aw  sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13and ax  the stars of the sky fell to the earth, ay  as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 az  The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and ba  every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15Then bb  the kings of the earth and the great men and the
I.e. chiliarchs, in command of one thousand troops
commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;
16and they bd  said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the
Lit face
presence of Him bf  who sits on the throne, and from the bg  wrath of the Lamb;
17for bh  the great day of their wrath has come, and bi  who is able to stand?”
