Mordecai the Jew was second only to King Ahasuerus, famous among the Jews, and highly popular with many of his relatives. He continued to seek good for his people and to speak for the welfare of all his descendants.
Then the man went to the other and said the same thing.“‘I will, sir,’ he answered. But he didn’t go.
The same happened to the second also, and the third, and so to all seven.
The second also took her, and he died, leaving no offspring. And the third likewise.
“The second came and said, ‘Master, your mina has made five minas.’
After they passed the first and second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened to them by itself. They went outside and passed one street, and immediately the angel left him.
1 Corinthians 15:47
The first man was from the earth
and made of dust;
the second man is from heaven.
The first living creature was like a lion; the second living creature was like a calf; the third living creature had a face like a man; and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.
When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!”
The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain ablaze with fire was hurled into the sea. So a third of the sea became blood,
A second angel followed, saying: “It has fallen, Babylon the Great has fallen, who made all nations drink the wine of her sexual immorality, which brings wrath.”
The second poured out his bowl into the sea. It turned to blood like a dead man’s, and all life in the sea died.
