Revelation 4Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
A Voice Says, Come Up To Heaven And See Things Which Must Take Place After These Things
4 After these things I saw, and behold— there was an opened door in heaven, and the first voice which I heard speaking with me like [the sound] of a trumpet saying, “Come-up here and I will show you the things which must take-place after these things”. 2 Immediately I came-to-be in the Spirit[a].
Vision 1: The Scroll With Seven Seals. The Heavenly Scene
And behold— a throne was setting there in heaven, and One sitting on the throne. 3 And the One sitting was resembling[b]a jasper stone and a carnelian in appearance. And a rainbow[c]was around the throne resembling an emerald in appearance. 4 And around the throne I saw twenty four thrones. And on the thrones I saw twenty four elders sitting, having been clothed in white garments, and golden crowns[d] on their heads. 5 And lightnings[e] and voices[f] and thunders[g] are coming-out from the throne. And seven torches[h]of fire are burning before the throne (which are the seven[i] Spirits of God). 6 And before the throne is something like a sea of-glass[j], resembling crystal. And in the midst of the throne and around the throne are four living-creatures[k] being full of eyes on the front and on the back. 7 And the first living-creature is resembling a lion. And the second living-creature is resembling a calf. And the third living-creature is having the face like of a man[l]. And the fourth living-creature is resembling a flying eagle. 8 And the four living-creatures, each one of them having six wings apiece, are full of eyes around and inside[m]. And they do not have a rest[n]by day and by night, saying “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, the One Who was and Who is and Who is coming”. 9 And whenever the living-creatures will give glory and honor and thanks to the One sitting on the throne, to the One living forever and ever, 10 the twenty four elders will fall before the One sitting on the throne, and will give-worship to the One living forever and ever, and will cast[o] their crowns before the throne, saying 11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because You created all things. And they existed and were created because-of Your will”.
