Out from the thronecome1flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were 2sevenlamps of fireburningbefore the throne, which are 3the sevenSpirits of God;
and before the throne there was something like a 4sea of glass, likecrystal; and in the acenter and 5around the throne, 6fourlivingcreatures7full of eyes in front and behind.
78The firstcreature was like a lion, and the secondcreaturelike a calf, and the thirdcreaturehad a facelike that of a man, and the fourthcreature was like a flyingeagle.
And the 9fourlivingcreatures, eachone of them having10sixwings, are 11full of eyesaround and within; and 12day and nightbthey do not cease to say, "13HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE 14LORDGOD, THE ALMIGHTY, 15WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO cIS TO COME."
And when the livingcreaturesgiveglory and honor and thanks to Him who 16sits on the throne, to 17Him who livesforever and ever,
the 18twenty-fourelders will 19falldownbefore Him who 20sits on the throne, and will worship21Him who livesforever and ever, and will cast their 22crownsbefore the throne, saying,
"23Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receiveglory and honor and power; for You 24createdallthings, and because of Your will they dexisted, and were created."
