And (A)they sang a new song, saying:

(B)“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And (C)have redeemed us to God (D)by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made [a]us (E)kings[b] and (F)priests to our God;
And [c]we shall reign on the earth.”

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

13 And (G)every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:

(H)“Blessing and honor and glory and power
Be to Him (I)who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb, forever and [d]ever!”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the [e]twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped [f]Him who lives forever and ever.
