Next I saw in the right hand of the One sitting on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals;
and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?"
But no one in heaven, on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or look inside it.
I cried and cried, because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside it.
One of the elders said to me, "Don't cry. Look, the Lion of the tribe of Y'hudah, the Root of David, has won the right to open the scroll and its seven seals."
