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!
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.
