    and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
    and with your blood(G) you purchased(H) for God
    persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.(I)
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests(J) to serve our God,
    and they will reign[a] on the earth.”(K)

“Worthy is the Lamb,(O) who was slain,(P)
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”(Q)
