I sawain the righthand of Him who 1sat on the throne a b2bookwritteninside and on the back, 3sealed up with sevenseals.
And I saw a 4strongangelproclaiming with a loudvoice, "Who is worthy to open the cbook and to break its seals ?"
And noone5in heavenor on the earthorunder the earth was able to open the dbookor to look into it.
4Then I began to weepgreatlybecausenoone was foundworthy to open the ebookor to look into it;
and one of the elderssaid to me, "Stopweeping ; behold, the 6Lion that is 7from the tribe of Judah, the 8Root of David, has overcome so as to open the fbook and its sevenseals."
And I sawgbetween the throne (with the fourlivingcreatures ) and 9the elders a 10Lambstanding, as if11slain, havingseven12horns and 13seveneyes, which are 14the sevenSpirits of God, sent out into all the earth.
And He came and took15the book out of the righthand of Him who 16sat on the throne.
8When He had taken the hbook, the 17fourlivingcreatures and the 18twenty-fourelders19felldownbefore the 20Lamb, eachoneholding a 21harp and 22goldenbowlsfull of incense, which are the 23prayers of the isaints.
And they sang a 24newsong, saying, "25Worthy are You to take the jbook and to break its seals ; for You were 26slain, and 27purchased for God with Your blood men from 28everytribe and tongue and people and nation.
"You have made them to be a 29kingdom and 30priests to our God ; and they will 31reign upon the earth."
11Then I looked, and I heard the voice of manyangels32around the throne and the 33livingcreatures and the 34elders ; and the number of them was 35myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,
12saying with a loudvoice, "36Worthy is the 37Lamb that was 38slain to receivepower and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."
And 39everycreatedthingwhich is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and allthings in them, I heardsaying, "To Him who 40sits on the throne, and to the 41Lamb, 42be blessing and honor and glory and dominionforever and ever."
And the 43fourlivingcreatures kept saying, "44Amen." And the 45elders46felldown and worshiped.
