Revelation of John 61 I saw when ▼
▼ M Vg read "that" instead of "when"the Lamb opened one of the seven ▼
▼ NU M P Ph Vg. TR omits "seven"seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come!" ▼
▼ M TR Ph P Vg add "and see"2 And I saw ▼
▼ M omits "And I saw", and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come ▼
▼ TR Vg add "and see"!" 4 Another came forth, a fiery red ▼
▼ M reads "firey" instead of "fiery red"horse. To him who sat on it was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.
5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come!" ▼
▼ NU Ph. M TR Vg P add "and see"And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand. 6 I heard something like a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A choenix ▼
▼ A choenix is a dry volume measure that is a little more than a litre (a little more than a quart)of wheat for a denarius, and three choenixes of barley for a denarius! Do not damage the oil and the wine!"
7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, "Come!" ▼
▼ NU Ph. M TR P Vg add "and see"8 And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death. Hell ▼
▼ Greek: Hades, Hebrew: Sheolfollowed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.
9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the Word of God, and for the testimony ▼
▼ M P add "of the Lamb." Ph adds instead "of Jesus"which they had. 10 They called out with a loud voice, saying, "How long, Master, the holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?" 11 A long white robe was given to each of them. They were told that they should rest yet for a little longer, until their fellow servants and their brothers, who would also be killed even as they were, should complete their course.
12 I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood. 13 The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains. 16 They told 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 for the great day of their ▼
▼ NU P Vg. M TR read "his" instead of "their"wrath has come; and who is able to stand?"
