And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, „Come and see“. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, „Come and see“. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, „Come and see“. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, „A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine“.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, „Come and see“. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
