Revelation 5
Berean Literal Bible

The Scroll with Seven Seals

1And I saw on the right hand of the One sitting upon the throne a scroll, having been written inside and on the back, having been sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll, and to break its seals?”

3And no one in heaven, nor upon the earth, nor under the earth, was able to open the scroll, nor to see it. 4And I was weeping loudly, because no one was found worthy to open the scroll, nor to see it.

The Lamb is Worthy

5And one of the elders says to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has overcome to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

6And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God having been sent out into all the earth. 7And He came and took it out of the right hand of the One sitting on the throne.

8And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls being full of incenses, which are the prayers of the saints. 9And they are singing a new song, saying,

“Worthy are You to take the scroll and to open its seals,

because You were slain,

and You purchased to God by Your blood,

out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

10and You have made them a kingdom

and priests to our God;

and they will reigna upon the earth.”

The Lamb Exalted

11And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and of the living creatures, and of the elders; and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12saying in a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb having been slain,

to receive the power and riches and wisdom and strength

and honor and glory and blessing!”

13And I heard every creature which is in heaven, and upon the earth, and under the earth, and on the sea, and everything in them, saying:

“To the One sitting on the throne,

and to the Lamb,

blessing and honor and glory and might

to the ages of the ages.”

14And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshiped.b
