Revelation 5 ©

1 The book sealed with seven seals, which no man is worthy to open. 4 John weeping at this is comforted. 6 The Lamb that was slain taketh the book to open it. 8 The beasts and the elders praise him that had redeemed them with his blood. 11 The angels join with them in ascribing glory to God and to the Lamb.


AND I saw in the aright hand of him that sat on the throne ba book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.


And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, cWho is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?


And dno man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.


And eI wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.


fAnd one of the elders saith unto me, gWeep not: behold, hthe Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, ihath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.


And I beheld, and, lo, jin the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood ka Lamb as it had been slain, having lseven horns and mseven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.


And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.


nAnd when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and ogolden *vials full of 1odours, which are the prayers of saints.


And they sung a pnew song, saying, qThou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for rthou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;


sAnd hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.


And I beheld, and I heard the voice of tmany angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;


Saying with a loud voice, uWorthy is the Lamb that was slain vto receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.


wAnd every *creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto xhim that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

x ch. 4.2.

yAnd the four beasts said, zAmen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
