Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne 1a scroll written within and on the back, 2sealed with seven seals.
And 3I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?"
And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,
and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
And one of the elders said to me, "Weep no more; behold, 4the Lion 5of the tribe of Judah, 6the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals."
