Revelation 4:1 After this I loked, and beholde a dore was open in heauen, and the fyrst voyce whych I hearde, was as it were of a trompett talkynge wyth me, whych sayde: come vp hyther, and I wyll shewe the thynges: whych must be fulfylled hereafter.
John seeth the throne of God in heaven.
Revelation 4:2 And immediatly I was in the sprete: & beholde, a seate was sett in heauen, and one sate on the seate. Revelation 4:3 And he that sat, was to loke vpon, lyke vnto a Iasper stone and a Sardyne stone. And ther was a rayne bowe aboute þe seate, in syght lyke to an Emeralde.
The four and twenty elders.
Revelation 4:4 And aboute þe seate were .xxiiii. seates. And vpon the seates .xxiiii. elders syttyng, clothed in whyte rayment, and had on theyr heades crownes of golde. Revelation 4:5 And out of the seate proceded lyghtnynges, & thundrynges, & voyces, & ther were seuen lampes of fyre, burnynge before the seate, whych are the seuen spretes of God,
The four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
Revelation 4:6 And before þe seate ther was a see of glasse, lyke vnto Cristal, and in the myddes of the seate, & rounde about the seate were foure beastes full of eyes before & behynde. Revelation 4:7 And the fyrst beast was lyke a lyon, & the seconde beaste lyke a calfe, & the thyrde beast had a face as a man, & the fourth beast was lyke a flyinge Egle. Revelation 4:8 And þe foure beastes had eche one of them .vi. wynges about hym, & they were full of eyes wt in. And they had no rest daye nether nyght saying. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almyghty, whych was, and is, and is to come. Revelation 4:9 And when those beastes gaue glory and honour & thankes to hym þt sate on the seate, (which lyueth for euer & euer)
The elders lay down their crowns, and worship him that sat on the throne.
Revelation 4:10 the .xxiiii. elders fell downe before hym þt sat on þe trone & worshypped hym that lyueth for euer & cast theyr crounes before þe trone saying: Revelation 4:11 thou arte worthy o Lord to receaue glory, & honoure, and power, for thou hast created all thynges, & for thy willes sake they are, & were created.
