5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a
book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven
5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who
is worthy to open the book, and to loose its seals?
5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
was able to open the book, neither to look upon it.
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open,
and to read the book, neither to look upon it.
5:5 And one of the elders saith to me, Weep not: behold, the
Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed
to open the book, and to loose its seven seals.
5:6 And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne, and of the
four living beings, and in the midst of the elders stood a Lamb

are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
that sat upon the throne.

5:10 And hast made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall
reign on the earth.

number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and
thousands of thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and
honor, and glory, and blessing.
5:13 And 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, I heard saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory,
and power, [be] to him that sitteth upon the throne, and to the
Lamb for ever and ever.
5:14 And the four living beings said, Amen. And the four [and]
twenty elders fell down and worshiped him that liveth for ever
