And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw (A)a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with (B)seven eyes, which are (C)the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 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 (D)fell down before the Lamb, (E)each holding a harp, and (F)golden bowls full of incense, (G)which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang (H)a new song, saying,

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

11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering (M)myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,

13 And I heard (O)every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

14 And the four living creatures (P)said, “Amen!” and the elders (Q)fell down and worshiped.
