When he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. They sing a new song:

‘You are worthy to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
for you were slaughtered and by your blood you ransomed for God
    saints from[a] every tribe and language and people and nation;
10 you have made them to be a kingdom and priests serving[b] our God,
    and they will reign on earth.’
