|<< Revelation 5 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And I saw in the right hand of him who sits upon the throne, a scroll inscribed from the inside and from the outside, and sealed with seven seals.
And I saw another mighty Angel preaching with a loud voice: “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loosen its seals?”
And there was none able in Heaven or in Earth, nor any under The Earth, to open the scroll and to open its seals and look upon it.
I was weeping much because none was found worthy to open the scroll and to loosen its seals,
And one of the Elders said to me, “Do not weep; behold, The Lion from the tribe of Judah, The Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and its seals.”
6And I saw in the midst of a throne and of The Four Beasts and of the Elders, a Lamb, which was as if it were slain, and it had seven horns and seven eyes, which are The Seven Spirits of God sent into the whole Earth.
7And he came and took the scroll from the hand of him who sat on the throne.
8And when he had received the scroll, The Four Beasts and 24 Elders fell down before the Lamb, while each one of them had a stringed instrument and a vessel of gold full of sweet spices, which are the prayers of The Holy Ones,
9Singing a new hymn of praise, and they were saying, “You are worthy to take the scroll and to loosen its seals, because you were slain and you have redeemed us by your blood to God from every tribe, nation and people,”
10“And you have made them a Kingdom, Priests and Kings to our God, and they shall reign over The Earth.”
11And I saw and heard as it were the voices of many Angels around the throne and of The Beasts and of the Elders, and their number was ten thousand ten thousands and thousands of thousands.
12And they were saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the slain Lamb to receive power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and blessing.”
13And every creature which is in Heaven and in Earth, under The Earth, in the Sea and all that is in them, I also heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and dominion to him sitting upon the throne and to the Lamb for the eternity of eternities.”
14And when The Four Beasts said, “Amen”, The Elders fell down and worshiped.
