King James VersionRevelation4


1 Af­ter this I looked, and, be­hold, a door was opened in heav­en: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trum­pet talk­ing with me; which said, Come up hith­er, and I will shew thee things which must be here­after. 2 And im­me­di­ate­ly I was in the spir­it: and, be­hold, a throne was set in heav­en, and one sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sar­dine stone: and there was a rain­bow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emer­ald. 4 And round about the throne were four and twen­ty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twen­ty el­ders sit­ting, clothed in white rai­ment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 5 And out of the throne pro­ceed­ed light­nings and thun­der­ings and voic­es: and there were sev­en lamps of fire burn­ing be­fore the throne, which are the sev­en Spir­its of God. 6 And be­fore the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crys­tal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes be­fore and be­hind. 7 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 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes with­in: and they rest not day and night, say­ing, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 9 And when those beasts give glo­ry and hon­our and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ev­er, 10 The four and twen­ty el­ders fall down be­fore him that sat on the throne, and wor­ship him that liveth for ever and ev­er, and cast their crowns be­fore the throne, say­ing, 11 Thou art wor­thy, O Lord, to re­ceive glo­ry and hon­our and pow­er: for thou hast cre­at­ed all things, and for thy plea­sure they are and were cre­at­ed.
