Coverdale(i) 1 And I sawe in the right hode of him, that sat in the trone, a boke wrytten with in & on the backside, sealed with seue seales. 2 And I sawe a stroge angell preachinge with a loude voyce: Who is worthy to open the boke, and to loose the seales therof? 3 And no ma in heaue ner in earth, nether vnder ye earth, was able to ope ye boke, nether to loke thereon. 4 And I wepte moch, because no man was founde worthy to open and to rede the boke, nether to loke thereon. 5 And one of the elders sayde vnto me: wepe not: Beholde, the lyon which is off the trybe of Iuda, ye rote of Dauid, hath obtayned to ope the boke, and to lowse the seue seales therof. 6 And I behelde, & lo, in the myddes of the seate, and of ye foure beastes, and in the myddes of ye elders, stode a lambe as though he had bene kylled, which had seuen hornes and seue eyes, which are the seue spretes of God, sent in to all the worlde. 7 And he came and toke the boke out of the right hode of him that sat vpon the seate. 8 And when he had taken the boke, the foure beestes and the xxiiij. elders fell downe before the lambe, hauinge harpes and golden vialles full of odoures (which are ye prayers of the sayntes) 9 and they songe a newe songe saynge: thou art worthy to take the boke & to ope the seales therof: for thou wast kylled, and hast redemed vs by thy bloud, out of all kynreddes, and toges, and people, and nacions, 10 & hast made vs vnto or God, kynges and prestes, and we shal raygne on ye earth. 11 And I behelde, and I herd the voyce of many angilles aboute the trone, and aboute the beestes and ye elders, and I herde thousand thousandes, 12 sayenge with a loude voyce: Worthy is the lambe that was killed, to receaue power, and riches & wissdome, and strength, and honoure and glory, and blessynge. 13 And all creatures, which are in heaue, & on the earth, & vnder the earth, & in the see, & all yt are in the, herd I sayenge: blessinge, honoure, glory, & power, be vnto him, yt sytteth vpo the seate, and vnto the labe for euermore. 14 And the foure beestes saide: Ame. And ye xxiiij. elders fell vpon their faces, and worshipped him that lyueth for euermore.
