CLV(i) 1 And I perceived when the Lambkin opens one of the seven seals; and I hear one of the four animals saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come!" 2 And I perceived, and lo! a white horse, and he who is sitting on it has a bow, and to him was given a wreath. And he came forth conquering and that he should be conquering." 3 And when It opens the second seal, I hear the second animal saying, "Come!" 4 And forth came another horse, fiery-red, and to him who is sitting on it was given to take peace out of the earth, and that they should be slaying one another. And a huge sword was given to him." 5 And when It opens the third seal, I hear the third animal saying, "Come!And I perceived and lo! a black horse, and he who is sitting on it has a pair of balances in his hand." 6 And I hear as it were a voice in the midst of the four animals saying, "A choenix of wheat a denarius, and three choenix of barley a denarius, and the oil and the wine you should not be injuring!" 7 And when It opens the fourth seal, I hear the voice of the fourth animal saying, "Come!" 8 And I perceived, and lo! a greenish horse, and the name of him who is sitting upon it is Death, and the Unseen followed him.
