Then I saw one like a slaughtered lamb(A) standing in the midst of the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God(B) sent into all the earth. He went and took the scroll out of the right hand of the one seated on the throne.

The Lamb Is Worthy

When he took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp(C) and golden bowls(D) filled with incense,(E) which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song:(F)

You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slaughtered,
and you purchased[a] people[b]
for God by your blood
from every tribe and language
and people and nation.(G)
10 You made them a kingdom[c]
and priests to our God,(H)
and they will reign on the earth.
