Third Seal – Black Horse

This rider mentions food, oil, and wine with the potential implication of famine following the destruction caused by the first two riders.

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine. (Revelation 6:5-6)
