1 😇, I [John] watch [Yahshua] the Lamb open one of the [book's] seals. [BOOM!] A noise like thunder [blasts] my ears. [The lion-like] one of the 4 creatures calls, “Come and see!”
2 I see. [You, 😇,] see: A white horse. The rider who sits on [the white horse carries] a bow. [YAH] gives a crown to the rider. The rider rides forth. [He] conquers [worlds]. [He] rides on to conquer again. Yahshua?
5*The Lamb opens the [book's] 3rd seal. I hear the [man-like] creature say, “Come and see!” So I look. See, 😇: A black horse. Its rider carries a pair of balances in his hand. lit. ‘3rd creature’.
6 I hear a voice in the midst of the 4 creatures say, “1 measure of wheat for a day's wages; 3 measures of barley for a day's pay. [Give every human what he deserves!] And never damage the oil and the wine!” Day's wages (pay) = denarius. Oil & wine = the holy spirit inside of true believers.
7 The Lamb opens the [book's] 4th seal, 😇. I hear the voice of the 4th [eagle-like] creature say, “Come and see.”
8*I look. See, 😇! A [sickly pale] greenish horse. ‘The Death’ is the name of the rider who sits upon the green horse. ‘The Unseen’ [Grave] follows with ‘the Death.’ [YAH] gives power to [‘the Death’ and ‘the Unseen’] over 1/4th of the earth, to kill [people] with sword, famine, plague, and land-beasts. 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 ‘chlorophyll’: 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, ‘hell’ is usually used here, but ‘Hades’ means ‘the unseen’ (as does Hades' Hebrew equivalent: Sheol.)
9*The Lamb opens the [book's] 5th seal, 😇. Under the altar I see the souls of [martyrs whom persecutors] murdered for [heralding] the word of [Yahweh] the Eloah, and for telling [what they'd seen and heard]. Bearing their testimony.
10*[The martyrs] cry with a loud voice, 😇, praying, “How long, [Yahweh]Adonai, holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on the [murderous] earth-dwellers?”
11*[Angels] give white robes to each of the martyrs. Then [Yahshua] says to [the martyrs,]“Rest for a little while, until [persecutors] murder all of your fellow-servants. [YAH] has destined [many of] your brothers to be killed as you were. YAH planned for you churchgoers to be crucified. But you got a job, a mortgage, and the mark of the beast instead.
12*I look, 😇: [Yahshua] the Lamb opens the [book's] 6th seal. See, 😇! A great earthquake [rocks the world]. The [golden] sun turns black like sack-cloth made of [goat's] hair. The [white] moon turns blood red!
13 The stars of heaven fall to the earth 😇, just like a fig tree drops its green figs when a mighty wind shakes it.
14 The sky rolls back like a scroll, 😇. Every mountain and island shakes out of its place.
15*The kings of the earth, and the grand men, and the rich men, and the chief generals, and the mighty [fighters], and every bound [slave], and every free man, hide themselves in [earth's] caves. [They cower in spider-holes], enshrouded in mountain rocks, 😇.
16 All [the world's] people call to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us! Hide us from the face of [Yahweh] who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of [Yahshua] the Lamb!
17 For the great Day of [YAH's and Yahshua's] fury arrives. Who can stand, 😇?”
