The eighth vision is that of “the four chariots.” These symbolize the four great monarchies so much spoken of by the prophet Daniel. These chariots, drawn by different horses, come forth from between mountains of brass, and then take their appointed course over different parts of the earth, and this may remind us of the first vision, or that of “the horses among the myrtle trees.” Only we have a new fact here: namely, that the second chariot has settled God’s question with the first; or, in the language of this vision, “those that go forth to the north country have quieted My spirit,” saith the Lord, “in the north country.” The Persian had, in the days of Zechariah, put down the Chaldean.
