5 And I saw in the right hand of ahim that sat on the throne ba book written within and con the backside, dsealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man ein heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And fone of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, gthe Lion hof the tribe of Juda, ithe Root of David, khath prevailed to open the book, and to loose lthe seven seals thereof. 6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of mthe four beasts, and in mthe midst of the elders, stood noa Lamb as it had been oslain, having seven horns and pseven eyes, which are qthe seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of ahim that sat upon the throne. 8 And when he had taken the book, rthe four beasts and rfour and twenty elders fell down before nthe Lamb, having every one of them sharps, and tgolden vials full of ||odours, uwhich are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung va new wsong, saying, xThou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for othou wast slain, and xxhast redeemed us to God yby thy blood out of zevery kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And ahast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels bround about the throne and cthe beasts and the elders: and the number of them was dten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud voice, eWorthy is fthe Lamb that was slain to receive gipower, and riches, and gwisdom, and gistrength, and ghhonour, and ghjglory, and gkblessing. 13 And levery 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, gkBlessing, and hhonour, and hglory, and mpower, be unto nhim that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14 And othe four beasts said, opAmen. And qthe four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped rhim that liveth for ever and ever.
