6:2 And I saw, and behold, a white horse: and he that sat on him

6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
living being say, Come and see.
6:4 And there went out another horse [that was] red: and [power]
was given to him that sat upon him to take peace from the
earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was

horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his
