1 Then I saw in the right hand of him
who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides
and sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a
loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the
seals and open the scroll?”
3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under
the earth could open the scroll or even
look inside it.
4 I wept and wept because no one
was found who was worthy to open
the scroll or look inside.
5 Then one of the elders said to me,
“Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has triumphed.
He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
