1 And I saw on the right of the one sitting on the throne a scroll having been written within and at the back, having been sealed up with seals seven.
2 And I saw a messenger strong, publishing with a voice great: Who is worthy to open the scroll, and to loose the seals of it?
3 And no one was able in the heaven, nor on the earth, nor under the earth, to open the scroll, nor to see it.
4 And I was weeping much, because no one worthy was found to open the scroll, nor to see it.
5 And one of the elders says to me: Not do thou weep; lo, prevailed the lion that of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, to open the scroll and the seven seals of it.
6 And I saw in midst of the throne and of the four living ones, and in midst of the elders, a young lamb having been standing as having been slaughtered, it had horns seven, and eyes seven, they are the seven spirits of the God those having been sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the scroll from the right of the one sitting on the throne.
8 And when he took the scroll, the four living ones and the twentyfour elders fell down in presence of the lamb, having each one harps, and bowls golden being full of odors, which are the prayers of the holy ones.
9 And they sung a song new, saying: Worthy thou art to receive the scroll, and to open the seals of it; because thou wast slain, and didst buy back for the God us with the blood of thee out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation;
10 and thou didst make them to the God of us kings and priests, and they shall reign on the earth.
11 And I saw, and I heard a voice of messengers many in a circle of the throne and of the living ones and of the elders; and was the number of them myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands;
12 saying with a voice great: Worthy is the lamb that having been killed to receive the power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.
13 And every created thing which is in the heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and on the sea which is, and the things in them, all, I heard saying: To the one sitting on the throne and to the lamb the blessing and the honor and the glory and the might for the ages of the ages.
14 And the four living ones said: So be it; and the elders fell down and did homage.
