And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come!" And I looked, and behold, a black horse, and the one seated on it had a balance scale in his hand.

By these three plagues a third of humanity was killed--by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur that came out of their mouths.

And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun and [with] the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars, and {who was pregnant} and was crying out [because she] was having birth pains, and was in torment to give birth.

And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared there by God, so that they could feed her there [for one] thousand two hundred sixty days.

And the [horn] [that] was broken, and [then] there arose four [horns] in place of it--[these are] four kingdoms [that] will arise from [his] nation, but not with his power. And at the end of their kingdom, when the transgressions are completed, a king will arise, fierce in countenance and skilled in riddles.

These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouth and consumes their enemies.
