New International Version

Revelation 5

The Scroll and the Lamb

1Then 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. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 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.”

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits[a] of God sent out into all the earth. He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
    and with your blood you purchased for God
    persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
    and they will reign[b] on the earth.”

11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying:

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”

13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
    be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”

14 The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

Mihuu ɔbɔfo tumfoɔ bi a ɔde nne kɛse kae se, “Hena na ɔfata sɛ obue nsɔwano no na obue nhoma no mu?” Nanso wɔannya obiara a ɔwɔ soro anaa asase so anaa asase ase a otumi buee nhoma no mu hwɛɛ mu.

Misui yiye efisɛ, wɔannya obiara a ɔfata sɛ obue nhoma no ano na ɔhwɛ mu.

Afei ɔpanyin baako ka kyerɛɛ me se, “Nsu. Hwɛ! Gyata a ofi Yuda abusuakuw mu a, ɔyɛ Dawid aseni adi nkonim, na obetumi abue nsɔwano ason no na wabue nhoma no ano.”

Afei mihuu oguammaa bi sɛ ogyina ahengua no mfinimfini a ateasefo baanan no ne mpanyimfo no atwa ne ho ahyia. Wohwɛ a na ɛsɛ nea wɔakum Oguammaa no. Na ɔwɔ mmɛn ason ne aniwa ason a egyina hɔ ma Onyankopɔn ahonhom ason no a wɔasoma wɔn aba wiase no. Oguammaa no kogyee nhoma no fii nea ɔte ahengua so no nsa nifa mu. Ɔyɛɛ saa no, ateasefo baanan no ne mpanyimfo aduonu anan no butubutuw Oguammaa no anim. Na wɔn mu biara kita sanku ne sika ayowa a aduhuam a Onyankopɔn nkurɔfo de bɔ mpae wɔ mu.

Wɔtoo dwom foforo se, “Wofata sɛ wofa nhoma no na wubue ne nsɔwano no. Efisɛ, wokum wo, na ɛnam wo wu so ma wɔtɔɔ nnipa fii abusua biara, kasa biara, ɔman biara ne nkurɔfo biara mu maa Onyankopɔn. 10 Woayɛ wɔn asɔfo ahemman sɛ, wɔnsom yɛn Nyankopɔn, na wobedi asase so hene.”

11 Bio mehwɛe, tee abɔfo mpempem nka. Na wɔatwa ahengua no ne ateasefo baanan no ne mpanyimfo no ho ahyia 12 reto dwom dennen se, “Ɛsɛ sɛ Onyankopɔn a wokum no no nya tumi, ahonya, nyansa ne ahoɔden ne nidi ne anuonyam ne nkamfo!”
