4:1 After these things I saw, and lo! a door was opened in heaven. And the first voice that I heard, was as of a trump speaking with me, saying, Ascend up hither, and I shall shew to thee which things it behooveth to be done soon after these things. 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 fulfilled hereafter. After this I looked, and behold, a door was open in heaven, and the first voice which I heard, was as it were of a trumpet talking with me, saying, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be done hereafter. 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.
4:2 And anon I was in Spirit, and lo! a seat was set in heaven, and on the seat one sitting. And immediately I was in the spirit. and behold, a seat was put in heaven and one sat on the seat. And immediately I was ravished in the spirit, & behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat upon the throne. And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold, a Throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the Throne.
4:3 And he that sat, was like to the sight of a stone jasper, and to sardine; and a rainbow was in the compass of the seat, like to the sight of smaragdus. And he that sat was to look upon like unto a jasper stone, and a sardine stone: And there was a rainbow about the seat, to look upon, like unto an emerald. And he that sat, was to look upon, like unto a jasper stone, and a sardine, & there was a rainbow round about the throne in sight like to an emerald. 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.
4:4 And in compass of the seat were four and twenty small seats; and upon the thrones four and twenty elders sitting, girded about with white clothes, and in the heads of them golden crowns. And about the seat were twenty four seats. And I saw on the seats twenty four seniors sitting clothed in white raiment, and had on their heads crowns of gold. 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 had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.
4:5 And lightnings, and voices, and thunderings came out of the throne; and seven lamps burning before the throne, which be the seven spirits of God. And out of the seat proceeded lightnings, and thunderings, and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire, burning before the seat, which are the seven spirits of God. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings, and thunderings, and voices, & there were seven lamps of fire, burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God. 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.
4:6 And before the seat as a sea of glass, like to crystal, and in the middle of the seat, and in compass of the seat, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And before the seat there was a sea of glass, like unto crystal, and in the midst of the seat, and round about the seat, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, & round about the throne were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 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.
4:7 And the first beast like a lion; and the second beast like a calf; and the third beast having a face as a man; and the fourth beast like an eagle flying. And the first beast was like a lion, 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. And the first beast was like a lion, & 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. 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.
4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings; and in compass and within they were full of eyes; and they had not rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God almighty, that was, and that is, and that is to come. And the four beasts had each one of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within. And they had no rest day neither night saying: holy, holy, holy, lord god almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And the four beasts had each one of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within, and they ceased not day nor night, saying, Holy, holy, holy Lord God, almighty, which Was, & Which is and Which is to come. 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.
4:9 And when those four beasts gave glory, and honour, and blessing to him that sat on the throne, that liveth into worlds of worlds, And when those beasts gave glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the seat, which liveth evermore, And when those beasts gave glory, and honour, and thanks to him that sat on the throne, which liveth for ever and ever, And when those beasts give glory, and honour, and thanks to him that sat on the Throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
4:10 the four and twenty elders fell down before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him that liveth into worlds of worlds. And they cast their crowns before the throne, saying, the twenty four seniors fell down before the throne, before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him that liveth ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying: The four and twenty elders fell down before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him, that liveth for evermore, & cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 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,
4:11 Thou, Lord our God, art worthy to take glory, and honour, and virtue; for thou madest of nought all things, and for thy will they were, and be made of nought. thou art worthy lord to receive glory, and honour, and power, for thou hast created all things, and for thy will’s sake they are, and were created. Thou art worthy, o Lord, to receive glory and honour, & power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy will’s sake they are, and have been created. 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.
