And he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders (A)fell down before the Lamb, (B)each holding a harp, and (C)golden bowls full of incense, (D)which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang (E)a new song, saying,

“Worthy are you to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
for (F)you were slain, and by your blood (G)you ransomed people for God
    from (H)every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them (I)a kingdom and priests to our God,
    and they shall reign on the earth.”
