The Throne and Worship of the Creator

5 Out from the throne come aflashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And [there were] bseven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are cthe seven Spirits of God; 6 and before the throne [there was something] like a asea of glass, like crystal; and in the Icenter and baround the throne, cfour living creatures dfull of eyes in front and behind. 7 aThe first creature [was] like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature [was] like a flying eagle. 8 And the afour living creatures, each one of them having bsix wings, are cfull of eyes around and within; and dday and night Ithey do not cease to say,
    “eHOLY, HOLY, HOLY [is] THE fLORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, gWHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IIIS TO COME.”
9 And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who asits on the throne, to bHim who lives forever and ever, 10 the atwenty-four elders will bfall down before Him who csits on the throne, and will worship dHim who lives forever and ever, and will cast their ecrowns before the throne, saying,
    11aWorthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You bcreated all things, and because of Your will they Iexisted, and were created.”

John seeth the throne of God in heaven.

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.

The four and twenty elders.

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.

The four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

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,
