Apocalypsis (Revelation) 6:8Wrench

BACK NEXT

I look. See, ๐Ÿ˜‡!
A [sickly pale] greenish horse.
โ€˜The Deathโ€™ is the name of the rider who sits upon the green horse.
โ€˜The Unseenโ€™ [Grave] follows with โ€˜the Death.โ€™ [YAH] gives power to [โ€˜the Deathโ€™ and โ€˜the Unseenโ€™] over 1/4th of the earth, to kill [people] with sword, famine, plague, and land-beasts.

Death

Note: Death's horse is not grey, it's pale, sickly green:

5515 chloros khlo-ros' from #5514;
greenish, i.e. verdant, dun-colored:--green, pale.
Death is green because from death springs life.
The raw material of existence recycles into green new life.

Chloros is the base of our word โ€˜chlorophyllโ€™:
bright green, grass-green.
The same word is used in conjunction with grass in Mark 6:39 and Rev 8:7, and it's the color of spring, rejuvenation, re-birth.

Again, โ€˜hellโ€™ is usually used here, but โ€˜Hadesโ€™ means โ€˜the unseenโ€™ (as does Hades' Hebrew equivalent:
Sheol.)
