Zechariah 6:1-8 New International Version

The Four Chariots

6 1  I looked up again, and there before me were four chariots coming out from between two mountains-mountains of bronze. 2  The first chariot had red horses, the second black, 3  the third white, and the fourth dappled-all of them powerful. 4  I asked the angel who was speaking to me, "What are these, my lord?" 5  The angel answered me, "These are the four spirits[1] of heaven, going out from standing in the presence of the Lord of the whole world. 6  The one with the black horses is going toward the north country, the one with the white horses toward the west,[2] and the one with the dappled horses toward the south." 7  When the powerful horses went out, they were straining to go throughout the earth. And he said, "Go throughout the earth!" So they went throughout the earth. 8  Then he called to me, "Look, those going toward the north country have given my Spirit[3] rest in the land of the north."
