1 AND I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a writing which was written within and on the back, and sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a mighty angel who proclaimed with a great voice: Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no one was able, in heaven above, nor upon earth, nor under the earth, to open the book, or to inspect it.
4 And I wept much, because no one could be found who was worthy to open the book, or to inspect it.
5 And one of the presbyters said to me, Weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Jihuda, who is the root of David, hath prevailed. He will open the book and the seven seal thereof.
6 And I saw, in the midst of the presbyters, a Lamb standing, as slain, who had seven horns and seven eyes which are the seven Spirits of Aloha, which are sent forth to all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book from the right hand of him who sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four living-ones and the twenty and four presbyters fell down before the Lamb, having each of them an harp, and vials of gold full of perfumes, which are the prayers of the saints.
9 And they hymned a new hymn, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, And to open the seals thereof; Because thou wast slain, And hast redeemed us to Aloha by thy blood, From every tribe and tongue and people and nation.
10 And thou hast made them to our God kings and priests, And reigning upon the earth.
11 And I saw and heard as the voice of many angels around the throne, and the living-ones, and the presbyters, and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,
12 which said with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, To receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, And honour, and glory, and blessing,
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on earth, And under the earth, and in the sea, And all them which are therein. And I heard him who sat upon the throne saying: To the Lamb let there be given blessing, and honour, and glory, and praise, and dominion, for ever and ever.
14 And the four living-ones said, Amen! And the presbyters fell, and worshipped.
