Revelation 6
Berean Literal Bible

The First Seal: The White Horse

1And I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as a voice of thunder, “Come!”

2And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and the one sitting on it having a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went forth overcoming, and that he might conquer.

The Second Seal: War

3And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come!”

4And another horse went forth, bright red; and to the one sitting on it, to him was granted to take the peace from the earth, and that they will slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

The Third Seal: Famine

5And when He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come!”

And I looked, and behold, a black horse, and the one sitting on it having a pair of scales in his hand. 6And I heard something like a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A choenix of wheat for a denarius,a and three choenixes of barley for a denarius; and you should not injure the oil and the wine.”

The Fourth Seal: Death

7And when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come!”

8And I looked, and behold, a pale horse, and the one sitting on it, the name of him was Death, and Hades was following with him; and authority was given to them over the fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with plague, and by the beasts of the earth.

The Fifth Seal: The Martyrs

9And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those having been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had upheld. 10And they were crying in a loud voice, saying, “Until when, O Lord, holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood from those dwelling upon the earth?”

11And to each of them were given white robes, and it was said to them that they shall rest yet a little time, until their fellow servants would also be complete, and their brothers, those being about to be killed as they also had been.

The Sixth Seal: Terror

12And 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 whole moon became like blood, 13and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs, being shaken by a great wind. 14And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15And the kings of the earth, and the great ones, and the commanders, and the rich, and the powerful, and every slave and free, hid themselves in the caves, and among the rocks of the mountains. 16And they say to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide usb from the face of the One sitting on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17because the great day of Theirc wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

a 6 A choenix was a Greek dry measure, equivalent to 1.92 pints. A denarius was customarily a day's wage for a laborer (see Matthew 20:2)
b 16 See Hosea 10:8
