Et vidi caelum apertum, et ecce equus...

Language: Latin

Et vidi caelum apertum, et ecce equus albus,
Et qui sedebat super eum, vocabatur Fidelis et Verax,
et cum iustitia iudicat et pugnat.
Et ipse calcat torcular vini
Furoris irae Dei onnipotentis.
Et habet in vestimento et in femore suo scriptum:
Rex regum et Dominus dominantium
Alleluia! Amen!

Translation(s): GER

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
