Revelation 5

1 And I saw upon the right of the One sitting upon the throne a book, written within and behind, sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong angel preaching in a great voice: Who is worthy to open the book and to loose its seals?

3 And no one was able, in the heaven, nor upon the earth, nor underneath the earth, to open the book nor to see it.

4 And I was weeping much because no one was found worthy to open the book nor to see it.

5 And one out from the elders says to me: Do not weep, behold, the Lion, the One out from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered to open the book and its seven seals.

6 And I saw, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God, sent away into all the earth.

7 And He came and has taken out from the right hand of the One sitting upon the throne.

8 And when He took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, having each one a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones.

9 And they sing a new song, saying: Worthy are You to receive the book and to open its seals, because You were slain and purchased to God in Your blood those out from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

10 And You have made them a kingship and priests to our God, and they will reign upon the earth.

11 And I looked, and I heard a sound of many angels around the throne, and the living creatures and the elders, and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a great voice: Worthy is the slain Lamb to receive power and riches and wisdom and force and honor and glory and blessing.

13 And I heard every creature which is in the heaven, and upon the earth, and underneath the earth, and upon the sea, and all the things in them, saying to the One sitting upon the throne and to the Lamb: Blessing and honor and glory and might into the ages of the ages.

14 And the four living creatures were saying: Amen! And the elders fell and worshiped.
