Nsɔwano nhoma no

1Mihui sɛ nea ɔte ahengua so no kita nhoma bi wɔ ne nsa nifa mu. Na wɔakyerɛw akyiri ne anim nyinaa a wɔde nsɔwano ason asosɔw ano. 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!”

13 Na metee sɛ abɔde a wɔwɔ soro, asase so, asase ase ne abɔde biara a wɔwɔ po mu ne abɔde biara a wɔwɔ wiase nyinaa reto dwom se, “Nhyira ne nidi ne anuonyam ne tumi nka nea ɔte ahengua no so ne Oguammaa no daa daa!” 14 Abɔde anan no gyee so se, “Amen!” Na mpanyimfo no butubutuw hɔ somee.

Revelation 5

The Lamb Opens the Scroll

1Then I saw a scroll[a] in the right hand of the one who was sitting on the throne. There was writing on the inside and the outside of the scroll, and it was sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel, who shouted with a loud voice: “Who is worthy to break the seals on this scroll and open it?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll and read it.

Then I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it. But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne,[b] has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Then I saw a Lamb that looked as if it had been slaughtered, but it was now standing between the throne and the four living beings and among the twenty-four elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the sevenfold Spirit[c] of God that is sent out into every part of the earth. He stepped forward and took the scroll from the right hand of the one sitting on the throne. And when he took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. And they sang a new song with these words:

“You are worthy to take the scroll
    and break its seals and open it.
For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God
    from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 And you have caused them to become
    a Kingdom of priests for our God.
    And they will reign[d] on the earth.”

11 Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders. 12 And they sang in a mighty chorus:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered—
    to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and blessing.”

13 And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang:

“Blessing and honor and glory and power
    belong to the one sitting on the throne
    and to the Lamb forever and ever.”

14 And the four living beings said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped the Lamb.
