Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I saw a scroll in the right hand of the one who sits on the throne; it was covered with writing on both sides and was sealed with seven seals. 1 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a mighty angel, who announced in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?" 2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?"
3 But there was no one in heaven or on earth or in the world below who could open the scroll and look inside it. 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it.
4 I cried bitterly because no one could be found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside.
5 Then one of the elders said to me, "Don't cry. Look! The Lion from Judah's tribe, the great descendant of David, has won the victory, and he can break the seven seals and open the scroll." 5 Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals."
