ABU(i) 1 AND I saw, when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four animals saying, as a voice of thunder: Come! 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse, and he who sat on him having a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. 3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second animal saying: Come! 4 And there went forth another horse that was red. And to him who sat thereon it was given to take away peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another; and there was given to him a great sword. 5 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third animal saying: Come! And I saw, and behold a black horse, and he who sat on him having a balance in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four animals, saying: A quart of wheat for a denáry, and three quarts of barley for a denáry; and: Hurt not the oil and the wine. 7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth animal saying: Come! 8 And I saw, and behold a pale horse; and he who sat on him, his name was Death, and the underworld followed with him. And authority was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the beasts of the earth. 9 And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those slain on account of the word of God, and on account of the testimony which they had. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Master, the holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell upon the earth? 11 And a white robe was given to each one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet a little time, until also their fellow-servants and their brethren, who are about to be killed as they were, should be fully numbered. 12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became all as blood; 13 and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig-tree casts its untimely figs, when shaken by a great wind; 14 and the heaven parted asunder as a scroll rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the chief captains, and the rich men, and the strong men, and every bondman and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks: Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 because the great day of his wrath is come, and who is able to stand?
