Revelation 6:1-17, NLT
The Lamb Breaks the First Six Seals
1As I watched, the Lamb broke the first of the seven seals on the scroll.*6:1 Or book. Then I heard one of the four living beings say with a voice like thunder, “Come!”
3When the Lamb broke the second seal, I heard the second living being say, “Come!”
5When the Lamb broke the third seal, I heard the third living being say, “Come!” I looked up and saw a black horse, and its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.
7When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living being say, “Come!”
9When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony.
12I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.
15Then everyone—the kings of the earth, the rulers, the generals, the wealthy, the powerful, and every slave and free person—all hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains.
