Revelation 5 - Lighthouse Bible 2006

The Scroll and the Lamb

1. And I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a book written within and on the back side, sealed with seven seals.

2. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

3. And no one in heaven, nor on earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look in it.

4. And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and to read the book, nor to look in it.

5. And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

6. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as if it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

7. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him who sat upon the throne.

8. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of saints.

9. And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation;

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

11. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

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.

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, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be to him that sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb for ever and ever.

14. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the twenty four elders fell down and worshiped him that lives for ever and ever.
