[Revelation 4]

     4:1 I saw after these things, and behold, a door has been opened in heaven and the first voice which I heard speaking with me, a voice like that of a trumpet, saying, Come-up here and I will be showing you what things are essential to happen after these things. 4:2 And immediately I became in the spirit and behold, the throne was placed in heaven, and sitting upon the throne 4:3was one similar in appearance to a jasper stone and a carnelian and there was a rainbow surrounding the throne, likewise in appearance to an emerald. 4:4 And twenty-four thrones weresurrounding the throne and twenty-four elders sitting upon the thrones, having been dressed in white garments, and golden crowns upon their heads. 4:5 And lightnings and voices and thunders travel out from the throne. And there are seven torches of fire burned in the sight of the throne, which are the seven spirits of God; 4:6 and in the sight of his throne, like a glassy sea similar to crystal, and in the middle of the throne and in a circle of the throne, four living creatures full of eyes before and behind. 4:7 And the first living creature was similar to a lion and the second living creature was similar to a calf and the third living creature having a face similar of a man and the fourth living creature was similar to a flying eagle. 4:8 And the four living creatures, every one, having six wings apiece, are full of eyes inside and surrounding, and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming. 4:9 And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to the one who is sitting upon the throne, to the one who lives forevermore, 4:10 the twenty-four elders will fall down in his sight who is sitting upon the throne and will be worshiping the one who lives forevermore and will put their crowns in the sight of the throne, saying, 4:11 You are worthy, the Lord and the God of us, the holy one, to receive the glory and the honor and the power because you created all things and because they were your will and they were created.
