9 And when He opened the 1fifth seal, I saw 2underneath the aaltar the bsouls of those who had been cslain because of the dword of God and because of the etestimony which they had.

10 And they 1cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Master, aholy and true, will You not bjudge and cavenge our blood on those who ddwell on the earth?

11 And to each of them was given a 1awhite robe; and it was said to them that they should brest yet a little while, until also the number of their fellow slaves and their brothers who were cabout to be 2killed, even as they were, is completed.

12 And I saw when He opened the 1sixth seal, and there was a great 2aearthquake, and the bsun became black like csackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood;

13 And the astars of heaven fell to the earth as a bfig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.

14 And aheaven was removed like a scroll being rolled up, and every bmountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the akings of the earth and the great men and the 1generals and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man bhid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And they 1asay to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the bface of Him who sits upon the throne and from the cwrath of the dLamb;

17 For the agreat day of Their wrath has come, and bwho is able to stand?
