And I looked, [a]and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood (A)a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and (B)seven eyes, which are (C)the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand (D)of Him who sat on the throne.

Worthy Is the Lamb

Now when He had taken the scroll, (E)the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the (F)prayers of the saints. And (G)they sang a new song, saying:

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