The opening of the seals in order, and what followed thereupon, containing a prophecy to the end of the world.
Revelation 6:1 And I saw when the Lambe opened one of the seales, and I hearde one of the .iiij. beastes saye, as it were the noyse of thonder, come and se. Revelation 6:2 And I sawe, and beholde there was a whyte horsse, and he that sate on him had a bow, & a croune was geuen vnto him, and he went forth conquerynge and for to ouercome. Revelation 6:3 And when he opened the seconde seale, I hearde the seconde beaste saye, come and se. Revelation 6:4 And there wente out another horsse that was red, and power was geuen to him that sate theron, to take peace from the earth, and that they should kyl one another. And there was geuen vnto hym a greate swerde. Revelation 6:5 And when he opened the thyrde seale, I hearde the thyrde beast say: come and se. And I behelde, and lo a blacke horsse: and he that sate on him, had a payre of balances in hys hand. Revelation 6:6 And I heard a voyce in the myddes of the .iiij. beastes say: a measure of wheat for a penye, and .iij. measures of barly for a peny, and oyle and wyne se thou hurte not. Revelation 6:7 And when he opened the fourth seale, I heard the voyce of þe fourth beaste saye: come and se. Revelation 6:8 And I loked, and behold a pale horsse, and hys name that sate on him was death, and hell folowed after him, and power was geuen vnto him ouer the fourth parte of the earth, to kyll with swerd and wyth honger, and wyth death, that cometh of vermen of the earth. Revelation 6:9 And when he opened the fyft seale, I saw vnder the aulter, the soules of them that were kylled for the word of God, & for the testymonye, whych they had, Revelation 6:10 and they cryed wyth a loude voyce sayinge: Howe longe tariest thou Lord holy and true, to iudge and to auenge oure bloud on them that dwell on the earth? Revelation 6:11 And longe whyte garmentes were geuen vnto euery of them. And it was sayde vnto them that they should reste for a litle season vntyll the number of their felowes and brethren, & of them that should be kylled as they were, were fulfylled. Revelation 6:12 And I behelde when he opened the syxte seale, and lo there was a greate earth quake, and the sunne was as blacke as sacke cloth, made of heare. And the mone wexed euen as bloude, Revelation 6:13 and the starres of heauen fell vnto þe earth, euen as a fygge tree casteth from her her fygges, when she is shaken of a myghty wynde. Revelation 6:14 And heauen vanished awaye, as a scrole, when it is rolled together. And al mountaines and Iles, were moued out of their places. Revelation 6:15 And the kynges of the earth, & the greate men and the ryche men, and the chiefe captaines, and the myghty men, and euerye bonde man, and euery free man, hyd them selues in dennes, and in rockes: Revelation 6:16 fal on vs, and hyde vs from the presence of hym that sitteth on the seate, and from the wrath of the lambe, Revelation 6:17 for the great day of his wrath is come: And who can endure it?
