Revelation of John 5

The Book with Seven Seals

1I saw
Lit upon
in the right hand of Him who b  sat on the throne a
Or scroll
,
d  book written inside and on the back e  sealed up with seven seals.
2And I saw a f  strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the
Or scroll
book and to break its seals?”
3And no one h  in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the
Or scroll
book or to look into it.
4Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the
Or scroll
book or to look into it;
5and one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the k  Lion that is l  from the tribe of Judah, the m  Root of David, has overcome so as to open the
Or scroll
book and its seven seals.”

6And I saw
Lit in the middle of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the middle of the elders
between the throne (with the four living creatures) and p  the elders a q  Lamb standing, as if r  slain, having seven s  horns and t  seven eyes, which are u  the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.
7And He came and took v  the book out of the right hand of Him who w  sat on the throne. 8When He had taken the
Or scroll
book, the y  four living creatures and the z  twenty-four elders aa  fell down before the ab  Lamb, each one holding a ac  harp and ad  golden bowls full of incense, which are the ae  prayers of the
Or holy ones
saints.
9And they sang a ag  new song, saying ah  Worthy are You to take the
Or scroll
book and to break its seals; for You were aj  slain, and ak  purchased for God with Your blood men from al  every tribe and tongue and people and nation.
10You have made them to be a am  kingdom and an  priests to our God; and they will ao  reign upon the earth.”

Angels Exalt the Lamb

11Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels ap  around the throne and the aq  living creatures and the ar  elders; and the number of them was as  myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, 12saying with a loud voice at  Worthy is the au  Lamb that was av  slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” 13And aw  every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who ax  sits on the throne, and to the ay  Lamb, az  be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.” 14And the ba  four living creatures kept saying, bb  Amen.” And the bc  elders bd  fell down and worshiped.
