Sawyer(i) 1 (4:1) AND I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and heard one of the four cherubs say like the sound of thunder, Come. 2 And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat on it had a bow, and a crown was given him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer. 3 (4:2) And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second cherub say, Come. 4 And there went out another fiery horse, and it was given to him that sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another, and there was given him a great sword. 5 (4:3) And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third cherub say, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and he that sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four cherubs, saying, A choenix [a quart] of wheat for a denarius [14 cents], and three choenices of barley for a denarius; and injure not the oil and wine. 7 (4:4) And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth cherub say, Come. 8 And I saw, and behold, a pale horse, and one sat on it, whose name was Death, and Hades followed him, and there was given him power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the beasts of the earth. 9 (4:5) And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those killed for the word of God and for the testimony which they had. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, Master, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on those that dwell on the earth? 11 And a white robe was given them, and it was told them to rest yet a little while, till their fellow servants and their brothers and those about to be killed as they also had been should finish [their testimony]. 12 (4:6) 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 all the moon became as blood, 13 and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts down its unseasonable figs when shaken with a mighty wind, 14 and heaven departed like a book rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved from their places. 15 And the kings of the earth and the great men and the chiliarchs and the rich and the mighty and every servant and freeman hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of his wrath has come, and who can stand?
