Revelation Chapter 5

Rev 5:1 So I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written inside and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

Rev 5:2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loosen the seals?

Rev 5:3 And no one in the heavens, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to behold it.

Rev 5:4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to behold it.

Rev 5:5 Then one of the elders says to me, cease weeping; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome to open the book, and to loosen the seven seals.

Rev 5:6 And I perceived, and, beheld, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the land.

Rev 5:7 Then He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne.

Rev 5:8 And when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of saints.

Rev 5:9 So they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Rev 5:10 and have made us to our God, a kingdom and priests; and we will be reigning over the earth.

Rev 5:11 So I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was countless upon countless, and thousands upon thousands;

Rev 5:12 saying with a loud voice, worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.

Rev 5:13 Then all creation which is in the heavens, and over the earth, and subduing the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying, blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be to Him that is sitting upon the throne, and to the Lamb into the New Covenant Age from the Old Covenant Age.

Rev 5:14 The four living creatures said, Amen. And the elders fell down and worshipped.
