A Vision of Four Chariots

Zechariah 6

1 Then I turned and raised my eyes and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming from between two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze. 2 With the first chariot were a red horses, with the second chariot b black horses, 3 with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot dappled horses - strong steeds. 4 Then I answered c and said to the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?" 5 And the angel answered and said to me, d "These are four spirits of heaven, who go out from their e station before the Lord of all the earth. 6 1 "The one with the black horses is going to f the north country, the white are going after them, and the dappled are going toward the south country." 7 Then the strong steeds went out, eager to go, that they might g walk to and fro throughout the earth. And He said, "Go, walk to and fro throughout the earth." So they walked to and fro throughout the earth. 8 And He called to me, and spoke to me, saying, "See, those who go toward the north country have given rest to My h Spirit in the north country."
