and before the throne there was something like a (A)sea of glass, like crystal; and in the [a]center and (B)around the throne, (C)four living creatures (D)full of eyes in front and behind. (E)The first living creature was like a lion, the second creature like a calf, the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. And the (F)four living creatures, each one of them having (G)six wings, are (H)full of eyes around and within; and (I)day and night [b]they do not cease to say,

(J)Holy, holy, holy is the (K)Lord God, the Almighty, (L)who was and who is and who [c]is to come.”

And when the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to Him who (M)sits on the throne, to (N)Him who lives forever and ever, 10 the (O)twenty-four elders will (P)fall down before Him who (Q)sits on the throne, and they will worship (R)Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their (S)crowns before the throne, saying,

11 (T)Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You (U)created all things, and because of Your will they [d]existed, and were created.”
