Revelation 5

Revelation 5

1The book sealed with seven seals, which no man is worthy to open. 4John weeping at this is comforted. 6The Lamb that was slain taketh the book to open it. 8The beasts and the elders praise him that had redeemed them with his blood. 11The angels join with them in ascribing glory to God and to the Lamb.

1 And I saw in the 1right hand of him that sat on the throne 2a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, 1Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And 1no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

4 And 1I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

5 1And one of the elders saith unto me, 2Weep not: behold, 3the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, 4hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

6 And I beheld, and, lo, 1in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood 2a Lamb as it had been slain, having 3seven horns and 4seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

8 1And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and 2golden vials full of aodours, which are the prayers of saints.

9 And they sung a 1new song, saying, 2Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for 3thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

10 1And hast 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 1many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, 1Worthy is the Lamb that was slain 2to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 1And every 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, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto 2him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

14 1And the four beasts said, 2Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
