Revelation 6:9-11

9: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11: And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

[6:9-11. The fifth seal presents the martyrdom of the Tribulation saints throughout the world. They will come to faith in Christ following the Rapture (cf. 7:9-17), and many will be killed by satanic opposition to their testimony of Christ. They plead for God's judgment on their unbelieving oppressors (Antichrist and his followers). The white robes depict their righteous standing before God. More saints will be martyred, since there is much more of the Tribulation to come.]
