Revelation 6:2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I looked, and there was a white horse, and its rider had a bow.[a] He was given a crown, and he rode forth victorious to further his victories.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:2 White horse…bow: this may perhaps allude specifically to the Parthians on the eastern border of the Roman empire. Expert in the use of the bow, they constantly harassed the Romans and won a major victory in A.D. 62; see note on Rev 9:13–21. But the Old Testament imagery typifies the history of oppression of God’s people at all times.
