9 And they sang a new song: v
You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because You were slaughtered,
for God by Your blood
from every tribe and language
and people and nation. y
10 You made them a kingdom z
and priests to our God, a
and they will reign on the earth.
11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and also of the living creatures and of the elders. Their number was countless thousands, plus thousands of thousands. b 12 They said with a loud voice:
The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy
to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and blessing!
13 I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth, c on the sea, and everything in them say: d
Blessing and honor and glory and dominion
to the One seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb, forever and ever!
14 The four living creatures said, “* Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
