Bible: Revelation 5:9-14

5:9 They were singing a new song: 1 

“You are worthy to take the scroll

and to open its seals

because you were killed, 2 

and at the cost of your own blood 3  you have purchased 4  for God

persons 5  from every tribe, language, 6  people, and nation.

5:10 You have appointed 7  them 8  as a kingdom and priests 9  to serve 10  our God, and they will reign 11  on the earth.”

5:11 Then 12  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 13  number was ten thousand times ten thousand 14  – thousands times thousands – 5:12 all of whom 15  were singing 16  in a loud voice:

“Worthy is the lamb who was killed 17 

to receive power and wealth

and wisdom and might

and honor and glory and praise!

5:13 Then 18  I heard every creature – in heaven, on earth, under the earth, in the sea, and all that is in them – singing: 19 

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

be praise, honor, glory, and ruling power 20  forever and ever!

5:14 And the four living creatures were saying “Amen,” and the elders threw themselves to the ground 21  and worshiped.
