The Vision of the Scroll and the Lamb
And I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back sealed with seven seals. And I saw a might angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worth to open the scroll and break its seals?" And no one in heaven or earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll.
And one of the elders said to me, "Weep no more; behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered so that he can open the scroll and the seven seals." And between the throne and the four living creatures I saw a Lamb standing as though it had been slain...
And they sang a new song saying "Worthy are you to take the scroll and open its seals for you were slain and by your blood you ransomed a people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God!
