Bible: Revelation 5:6-14

5:6 Then 1  I saw standing in the middle of the throne 2  and of the four living creatures, and in the middle of the elders, a Lamb that appeared to have been killed. 3  He had 4  seven horns and seven eyes, which 5  are the seven 6  spirits of God 7  sent out into all the earth. 5:7 Then 8  he came and took the scroll 9  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 10  before the Lamb. Each 11  of them had a harp and golden bowls full of incense (which are the prayers of the saints). 12  5:9 They were singing a new song: 13 

“You are worthy to take the scroll

and to open its seals

because you were killed, 14 

and at the cost of your own blood 15  you have purchased 16  for God

persons 17  from every tribe, language, 18  people, and nation.

5:10 You have appointed 19  them 20  as a kingdom and priests 21  to serve 22  our God, and they will reign 23  on the earth.”

5:11 Then 24  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 25  number was ten thousand times ten thousand 26  – thousands times thousands – 5:12 all of whom 27  were singing 28  in a loud voice:

“Worthy is the lamb who was killed 29 

to receive power and wealth

and wisdom and might

and honor and glory and praise!

5:13 Then 30  I heard every creature – in heaven, on earth, under the earth, in the sea, and all that is in them – singing: 31 

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

be praise, honor, glory, and ruling power 32  forever and ever!

5:14 And the four living creatures were saying “Amen,” and the elders threw themselves to the ground 33  and worshiped.
