{6:2} And I saw, and behold, a white horse. And he who was sitting upon it was holding a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering, so that he might prevail.

 

2

{6:3} And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying: “Draw near and see.”

{6:4} And another horse went forth, which was red. And it was granted to him who was sitting upon it that he would take peace from the earth, and that they would kill one another. And a great sword was given to him.

 

3

{6:5} And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying: “Draw near and see.” And behold, a black horse. And he who was sitting upon it was holding a balance in his hand.

{6:6} And I heard something like a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A double measure of wheat for a denarius, and three double measures of barley for a denarius, but do no harm to wine and oil.”

 

4

{6:7} And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying: “Draw near and see.”

{6:8} And behold, a pale horse. And he who was sitting upon it, his name was Death, and Hell was following him. And authority was given to him over the four parts of the earth, to destroy by the sword, by famine, and by death, and by the creatures of the earth.

 

5

{6:9} And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw, under the altar, the souls of those who had been slain because of the Word of God and because of the testimony that they held.

{6:10} And they were crying out with a loud voice, saying: “How long, O Holy and True Lord, will you not judge and not vindicate our blood against those who dwell upon the earth?”

{6:11} And white robes were given to each of them. And they were told that they should rest for a brief time, until their fellow servants and their brothers, who were to be slain even as they were slain, would be completed.

 

6

{4:6} And in the middle of the throne, and all around the throne, there were four living creatures, full of eyes in front and in back.

{4:7} And the first living creature resembled a lion, and the second living creature resembled a calf, and the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature resembled a flying eagle.

 

7

{8:1} And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

{8:2} And I saw seven Angels standing in the sight of God. And seven trumpets were given to them.

{8:3} And another Angel approached, and he stood before the altar, holding a golden censer. And much incense was given to him, so that he might offer upon the golden altar, which is before the throne of God, the prayers of all the saints.

{8:4} And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended, in the presence of God, from the hand of the Angel.

{8:5} And the Angel received the golden censer, and he filled it from the fire of the altar, and he cast it down upon the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings and a great earthquake.

{8:6} And the seven Angels who hold the seven trumpets prepared themselves, in order to sound the trumpet.

{5:1} And in the right hand of the One sitting upon the throne, I saw a book, written inside and out, sealed with seven seals.

{5:2} And I saw a strong Angel, proclaiming with a great voice, “Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?”

{5:3} And no one was able, neither in heaven, nor on earth, nor under the earth, to open the book, nor to gaze upon it.

{5:4} And I wept greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book, nor to see it.
