The First Seal--Rider on White Horse

1 Then I saw when the Lamb R295 broke one of the seven R296 seals, and I heard one of the four R297 living creatures saying as with a voice R298 of thunder, "Come." F57 2 I looked, and behold, a white R299 horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a R300 crown was given to him, and he went out conquering R301 and to conquer.

The Second Seal--War

3 When He broke the second seal, I heard the second R302 living creature saying, "Come." F58 4 And another, a R303 red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take R304 peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

The Third Seal--Famine

5 When He broke the third seal, I heard the third R305 living creature saying, "Come." F59 I looked, and behold, a black R306 horse; and he who sat on it had a pair R307 of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four R308 living creatures saying, "A quart F60 of wheat for a denarius, F61 and three quarts F60 of barley for a denarius; F61 and do R309 not damage the oil and the wine."

The Fourth Seal--Death

7 When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth R310 living creature saying, "Come." F62 8 I looked, and behold, an ashen R311 F63 horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; R312 and Hades R312 was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to R313 kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence F64 and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The Fifth Seal--Martyrs

9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath R314 the altar R315 the souls R316 of those who had been slain because R317 of the word of God, and because of the testimony R318 which they had maintained; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "How R319 long, O Lord, R320 F65 holy R321 and true, will F66 You refrain from judging R322 and avenging our blood on those R323 who dwell on the earth?" 11 And there R324 was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest R325 for a little while longer, until R326 the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed R327 also.

The Sixth Seal--Terror

12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; R328 and the sun R329 became black as sackcloth R330 made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the R331 stars of the sky fell to the earth, as R332 a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The R333 sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every R334 mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the R335 kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders F67 and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said R336 to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence F68 of Him who R337 sits on the throne, and from the wrath R338 of the Lamb; 17 for the R339 great day of their wrath has come, and who R340 is able to stand?"
