And when he had taken it, the four living creatures1 and the twenty-four elders2 fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp3 and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers4 of the saints.
And they sang a new song:5 "You are worthy6 to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood7 you purchased8 men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.910
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests10 to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth."1111
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand.12 They encircled the throne and the living creatures13 and the elders.1412
In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb,15 who was slain,16 to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"1713
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth18 and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the throne19 and to the Lamb20 be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!"2114
The four living creatures22 said, "Amen,"23 and the elders24 fell down and worshiped.25
