Revelation Chapter 4

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 4

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet talking with me, which said, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be hereafter.

2-5 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he who sat there was like a jasper and a sardine stone; there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. And around the throne were twenty-four seats: and upon the seats, I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightning and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

6-7 And before the throne, there was a sea of glass like crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

8-10 And the four beasts, each of them having six wings around them, and they were full of eyes within. And they did not rest day or night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and who is to come. And whenever the beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11 You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure, they are and were created.
