Revelation 6Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
The Lamb Opens The First Six Seals
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living-creatures saying like a voice of [a] thunder, “Come[b]”. 2 And I saw, and behold— there was a white horse, and the one sitting on it having a bow. And a crown was given to him. And he went out conquering, and[c] in order that he might conquer.
3 And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living-creature saying, “Come”. 4 And another horse— a fire-red one— went out. And to the one sitting on it, authority was given to him to take the peace[d] from the earth, and[e] that they will slay one another. And a great sword was given to him.
5 And when He opened the third seal, I heard the third living-creature saying, “Come”. And I saw, and behold— there was a black horse, and the one sitting on it holding a balance-scale in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the midst of the four living-creatures, saying “A quart[f] of wheat for a denarius[g], and three quarts of barley for a denarius. And do not harm the olive-oil and the wine”.
7 And when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living-creature saying, “Come”. 8 And I saw, and behold— there was a pale-green horse, and the one sitting on it. Death was the name for him. And Hades was following with him. And authority[h] was given to them over a fourth of the earth[i], to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild-beasts of the earth.
9 And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of the ones having been slain because of the word of God and[j] because of the testimony which they were holding[k]. 10 And they cried-out with a loud voice, saying “How long, holy and true Master, are You not judging and avenging[l] our blood from the ones dwelling upon the earth?” 11 And a white robe was given to them, to each one. And it was told to them that they shall[m] rest[n] a short time longer, until also[o] the number of their fellow-slaves and[p] their brothers going to be killed as also they, may be completed[q].
12 And I saw when He opened the sixth seal. And a great earthquake took place. And the sun became black like a sackcloth made-of-hair, and the whole moon became like blood[r], 13 and the stars of the heaven fell to the earth— as a fig tree being shaken by a great wind throws its late-figs. 14 And the heaven was split[s] like a scroll being rolled-up. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth and the princes and the commanders and the rich and the powerful and every slave and free one hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains. 16 And they are saying to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall upon us and hide us from the face[t] of the One sitting on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 because the great day of Their wrath came, and who is able to stand?”.
