8In the night I saw a man riding on a red horse! He was standing among the myrtle trees in the glen; and behind him were red, sorrel, and white horses. 9Then I said, What are these, my lord? The angel who talked with me said to me, I will show you what they are. 10So the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered, They are those whom the Lord has sent to patrol the earth. 11Then they spoke to the angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, We have patrolled the earth, and lo, the whole earth remains at peace.
6And again I looked up and saw four chariots coming out from between two mountainsmountains of bronze. 2The first chariot had red horses, the second chariot black horses, 3the third chariot white horses, and the fourth chariot dappled gray horses. 4Then I said to the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord? 5The angel answered me, These are the four winds of heaven going out, after presenting themselves before the Lord of all the earth. 6The chariot with the black horses goes toward the north country, the white ones go toward the west country, and the dappled ones go toward the south country. 7When the steeds came out, they were impatient to get off and patrol the earth. And he said, Go, patrol the earth. So they patrolled the earth. 8Then he cried out to me, Lo, those who go toward the north country have set my spirit at rest in the north country.
