1 After these things I saw, and behold, a adoor 1bopened in heaven, and the first 2cvoice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, dCome up here, and I will show you the things that must take place after these ethings.

2 Immediately I was in 1aspirit; and behold, there was a 2bthrone set in heaven, and upon the throne there was cOne sitting;

3 And He who was sitting was like a 1ajasper stone and a 2bsardius in appearance, and there was a 3crainbow around the throne like an 4demerald in appearance.

4 And aaround the throne there were 1btwenty-four thrones, and upon the thrones 1ctwenty-four 2elders sitting, clothed in 3dwhite garments, and upon their heads golden ecrowns.

5 And out of the throne come forth alightnings and voices and thunders. And there were 1bseven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the 2cseven Spirits of God;

6 And before the throne there was as it were a 1aglassy sea like bcrystal; and in the midst of the throne and around the throne, there were 2cfour living creatures 3dfull of eyes in front and behind.

7 And the first living creature was 1like a alion, and the second living creature like a acalf, and the third living creature had a face like that of a aman, and the fourth living creature was like a flying aeagle.

8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having asix wings apiece, are full of eyes around and within; and they have no rest day and night, saying, 1bHoly, holy, holy, cLord God the Almighty, 2dwho was and who is and who is coming.

9 And when the four living creatures give 1aglory and honor and thanks to Him who sits upon the throne, to Him who blives forever and ever,

10 The twenty-four elders will afall before Him who sits upon the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever; and they will 1cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11 You are aworthy, our Lord and God, to receive the 1bglory and the honor and the power, for You have ccreated all things, and because of Your 2dwill they were, and were created.
