Revelation 4

1 After these things I saw, and behold, a door opened in the heaven, and the first voice which I heard as a trumpet, speaking with me, saying: Come up here and I will display to you which things are necessary to come to be after these things.

2 Immediately I came to be for myself in spirit, and behold, a throne was lying in the heaven and One sitting upon the throne.

3 And the One sitting similar in appearance to a jasper stone, and a sardine, and a rainbow around the throne, similar in appearance to an emerald.

4 And around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and upon the thrones, twenty-four elders sitting, wrapped themselves in white garments, and golden crowns upon their heads.

5 And out from the throne go out lightnings and sounds and thunders, and seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of the God.

6 And before the throne as a glassy sea, similar to crystal. And in the midst of the throne and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in-front and behind.

7 And the first living creature similar to a lion, and the second living creature similar to a calf, and the third living creature having the face as of a man, and the fourth living creature similar to a flying eagle.

8 And the four living creatures, one against one of them having six wings each, around and within full of eyes, and they do not have rest of day and night, saying: “Holy, Holy, Holy, the Lord God, the Almighty, the One Who was, and the One being, and the One coming.

9 And whenever the living creatures will give glory and honor and thanksgiving to the One sitting upon the throne, the One living into the ages of the ages,

10 the twenty-four elders will fall before the One sitting upon the throne, and they will bow down to the One living into the ages of the ages, and they will cast their crowns before the throne saying:

11 “Worthy are You, our Lord and God to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because You created all things, and on account of Your will they were and were created.”
