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.9
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!"21
