[1] And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book, [2] written within and on the backside, [3] sealed with seven seals. [4] And I saw a strong angel preaching with a loud voice: [5] ‘Who is worthy to open the book and loose the seals thereof?’ [6] And no man in heaven nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. [7] And I wept much because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. [8] And one of the elders said unto me: ‘Weep not. [9] Behold, the lion which is of the tribe of Judah, [10] the root of David, hath obtained to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof’. [11] And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the seat, and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders [12] stood a lamb as though he had been killed [13] which had seven horns [14] and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent unto all the world. [15] And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the seat.
