I saw on the right hand of Him who sits upon the throne a 1ascroll
written within and on the back, sealed up with 2seven
I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is aworthy
to open the scroll and to break its seals?
no one ain
heaven nor on the earth nor under the earth was able to open the scroll or look into it.
I wept much because 1no
one was found worthy to open the scroll or look into it.
one of the elders said to me, Do not weep; behold, the 1aLion
of the tribe of bJudah
, the 2cRoot
of David, has 3dovercome
so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.
I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a 1aLamb 2standing
as 3having just
, having 4seven chorns
and 5dseven eeyes
are the fseven
Spirits of God sent forth into gall
He came and took the scroll
out of the right hand of Him who sits upon the throne.
when He took the scroll, the afour
living creatures and the btwenty
-four elders fell before the Lamb, each having a charp
and dgolden 1bowls
full of 2eincense
, which bowls
are the fprayers
of the saints.
they sing a 1anew
song, saying: You are 2bworthy
to take the scroll and to open its seals, for You were cslain
and have dpurchased
for God 3by
Your eblood men
out of fevery
tribe and tongue and people and nation,
have made 1them
and priests to our God; and they will breign 3on
I saw, and I heard the voice of 1many
angels around the throne and of the living creatures and of the elders, and their number was aten
thousands of ten thousands and thousands of thousands,
with a loud voice, aWorthy
is the bLamb
who has been cslain
to receive the dpower
and wisdom and strength and honor and fglory
creature which is ain
heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea and all things in them, I heard saying, To Him who sits upon the throne and to the bLamb
be the blessing and the honor and the glory and the might forever and ever.
the four living creatures said, aAmen
. And the elders fell down and worshipped.
