Chapter 4

1.1
After these things I looked and saw a door opened in heaven,
1.2
and the first voice that I heard, like a trumpet speaking with me, was one saying, “Come up here, and I will show you the things which must happen after this.” Immediately I was in the Spirit.
2.1
Behold, there was a throne set in heaven, and one sitting on the throne, that looked like a jasper stone and a sardius.
3.1
There was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald to look at.
4.1
Around the throne were twenty-four thrones. On the thrones were twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white garments, with crowns of gold on their heads.
5.1
Out of the throne proceed lightnings, sounds, and thunders.
5.2
There were seven lamps of fire burning before his throne,
5.3
which are the seven Spirits of God.
6.1
Before the throne was something like a sea of glass, similar to crystal. In the middle of the throne, and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind.
7.1
The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle. The four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within.
8.1
They have no rest day and night, saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come!”
9.1
When the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to him who sits on the throne, to him who lives forever and ever,
10.1
the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever, and throw their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, the Holy One, to receive the glory, the honor, and the power, for you created all things, and because of your desire they existed, and were created!”

Chapter 5

1.1
I saw, in the right hand of him who sat on the throne, a book written inside and outside, sealed shut with seven seals.
2.1
I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?”
4.1
No one in heaven above, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book or to look in it. Then I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look in it.

5.1

One of the elders said to me, “Don’t weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome: he who opens the book and its seven seals.”

6.1
I saw in the middle of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the middle of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. Then he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne.
8.1
Now when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
9.1
They sang a new song, saying, “You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals: for you were killed, and bought us for God with your blood out of every tribe, language, people, and nation, and made us kings and priests to our God, and we will reign on the earth.”
11.1
I saw, and I heard something like a voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders.
12.1
The number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who has been killed to receive the power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing!”
13.1
I heard every created thing which is in heaven, on the earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them, saying,
