View In My Bible
2 Immediately I was a1in the Spirit; and behold, 2a throne was standing in heaven, and 3One sitting on the throne. 3 And He who was sitting was like a 4jasper stone and a 5sardius in appearance; and there was a b6rainbow around the throne, like an 7emerald in appearance. 4 8Around the throne were 9twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw 10twenty-four elders 11sitting, clothed in 12white garments, and 13golden crowns on their heads.

The Throne and Worship of the Creator

5 Out from the throne come 14flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were 15seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are 16the seven Spirits of God; 6 and before the throne there was something like a 17sea of glass, like crystal; and in the ccenter and 18around the throne, 19four living creatures 20full of eyes in front and behind. 7 21The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. 8 And the 22four living creatures, each one of them having 23six wings, are 24full of eyes around and within; and 25day and night dthey do not cease to say, "26HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE 27LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, 28WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO eIS TO COME." 9 And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who 29sits on the throne, to 30Him who lives forever and ever, 10 the 31twenty-four elders will 32fall down before Him who 33sits on the throne, and will worship 34Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their 35crowns before the throne, saying, 11 "36Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You 37created all things, and because of Your will they fexisted, and were created."
