And I saw a mighty angel1 proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?"
References for Revelation 5:2
But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it.
I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside.
Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion2 of the tribe of Judah,3 the Root of David,4 has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals."
