Bible: Rev 5:5-13

5:5 Then 1  one of the elders said 2  to me, “Stop weeping! 3  Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered; 4  thus he can open 5  the scroll and its seven seals.”

5:6 Then 6  I saw standing in the middle of the throne 7  and of the four living creatures, and in the middle of the elders, a Lamb that appeared to have been killed. 8  He had 9  seven horns and seven eyes, which 10  are the seven 11  spirits of God 12  sent out into all the earth. 5:7 Then 13  he came and took the scroll 14  from the right hand of the one who was seated on the throne, 5:8 and when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders threw themselves to the ground 15  before the Lamb. Each 16  of them had a harp and golden bowls full of incense (which are the prayers of the saints). 17  5:9 They were singing a new song: 18 

“You are worthy to take the scroll

and to open its seals

because you were killed, 19 

and at the cost of your own blood 20  you have purchased 21  for God

persons 22  from every tribe, language, 23  people, and nation.

5:10 You have appointed 24  them 25  as a kingdom and priests 26  to serve 27  our God, and they will reign 28  on the earth.”

5:11 Then 29  I looked and heard the voice of many angels in a circle around the throne, as well as the living creatures and the elders. Their 30  number was ten thousand times ten thousand 31  – thousands times thousands – 5:12 all of whom 32  were singing 33  in a loud voice:

“Worthy is the lamb who was killed 34 

to receive power and wealth

and wisdom and might

and honor and glory and praise!

5:13 Then 35  I heard every creature – in heaven, on earth, under the earth, in the sea, and all that is in them – singing: 36 

“To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb

be praise, honor, glory, and ruling power 37  forever and ever!
