The Book with Seven Seals

1 I saw in F47 the right hand of Him who sat R252 on the throne a book R253 F48 written inside and on the back, sealed R254 up with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong R255 angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book F49 and to break its seals?" 3 And no one in R256 heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book F50 or to look into it. 4 Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book F51 or to look into it; 5 and one of the elders said to me, "Stop weeping; behold, the Lion R257 that is from R258 the tribe of Judah, the Root R259 of David, has overcome so as to open the book F52 and its seven seals."

6 And I saw between F53 the throne (with the four living creatures) and the R260 elders a Lamb R261 standing, as if slain, R262 having seven horns R263 and seven R264 eyes, which are the R265 seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. 7 And He came and took the R266 book out of the right hand of Him who sat R266 on the throne. 8 When He had taken the book, F54 the four R267 living creatures and the twenty-four R268 elders fell R269 down before the Lamb, R270 each one holding a harp R271 and golden R272 bowls full of incense, which are the prayers R273 of the saints. F55 9 And they sang a new R274 song, saying,

"Worthy R275 are You to take the book F56 and to break its seals; for You were slain, R276 and purchased R277 for God with Your blood men from every R278 tribe and tongue and people and nation. 10"You have made them to be a kingdom R279 and priests R279 to our God; and they will reign R280 upon the earth."

Angels Exalt the Lamb

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around R281 the throne and the living R282 creatures and the elders; R283 and the number of them was myriads R284 of myriads, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,

"Worthy R285 is the Lamb R286 that was slain R286 to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing." 13 And every R287 created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying,

"To Him who sits R288 on the throne, and to the Lamb, R289 be R290 blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever." 14 And the four R291 living creatures kept saying, "Amen." R292 And the elders R293 fell R294 down and worshiped.
