Scene in Heaven

1 After these R210 things I looked, and behold, a R211 door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like R212 the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come R213 up here, and I will show R214 you what must take place after these things." 2 Immediately I was in R215 F41 the Spirit; and behold, a R216 throne was standing in heaven, and One R217 sitting on the throne. 3 And He who was sitting was like a jasper R218 stone and a sardius R219 in appearance; and there was a rainbow R220 F42 around the throne, like an emerald R221 in appearance. 4 Around R222 the throne were twenty-four R223 thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four R224 elders sitting, R225 clothed in white R226 garments, and golden R227 crowns on their heads.

The Throne and Worship of the Creator

5 Out from the throne come flashes R228 of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven R229 lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the R230 seven Spirits of God; 6 and before the throne there was something like a sea R231 of glass, like crystal; and in the center F43 and around R232 the throne, four R233 living creatures full R234 of eyes in front and behind. 7 The R235 first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four R236 living creatures, each one of them having six R237 wings, are full R238 of eyes around and within; and day R239 and night they F44 do not cease to say,

"HOLY R240 , HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD R241 GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO R242 WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS F45 TO COME." 9 And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits R243 on the throne, to Him R244 who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four R245 elders will fall R246 down before Him who sits R247 on the throne, and will worship Him R248 who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns R249 before the throne, saying, 11"Worthy R250 are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created R251 all things, and because of Your will they existed, F46 and were created."
