The book sealed with seven seals:
Revelation 5:1 And I sawe in þe ryght hande of hym that sat in the trone, a boke written with in & on the backsyde, sealed with seuen seales. Revelation 5:2 And I sawe a stronge angell, which preached wt a lowde voyce: Who is worthy to open the boke, & to lose þe seales therof. Revelation 5:3 And no man in heauen ner in erth nether vnder þe erth, was able to open þe boke, nether to loke theron. Revelation 5:4 And I wepte moch because no man was founde worthy to open & to reade the boke, nether to loke theron. Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders sayde vnto me wepe not: Beholde, a lyon of þe trybe of Iuda, the rote of Dauid, hath obtayned to open the boke, and to lose the seuen seales therof. Revelation 5:6 And I behelde, and lo, in the myddes of the seate, and of the foure bestes, and in þe myddes of the elders, stode a lambe as though he had bene kylled, hauynge seuen hornes, and seuen eyes, whych are the seuen spretes of God, sent into all the worlde. Revelation 5:7 And he came, and toke the boke out of the ryght hande of him that sate vpon the seate. Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken þe boke, the foure beastes and .xxiiii. elders fell downe before þe lambe, hauyng (euery one of them) harpes & golden vialles full of odoures, which are the prayers of saynctes,
which only the Lamb that was slain is worthy to open.
Revelation 5:9 & they songe a new songe, saying: thou art worthy to take the boke, & to open the seales therof: for þu wast kylled, & hast redemed vs by thy bloud out of all kynredes, & tonges, & people, & nacyons, Revelation 5:10 and hast made vs vnto oure God, kynges, and prestes, & we shall raygne on the erth. Revelation 5:11 And I behelde, and I hearde the voyce of many angels about the trone, & about the beaste & the elders, and I hearde thousand thousandes,
Therefore the elders praise him, having confessed that he redeemed them with his blood.
Revelation 5:12 saying wt a lowde voyce: Worthy is the lambe that was kylled to receaue power, & ryches, & wysdome, and strength, and honour, & glory, & blessynge. Revelation 5:13 And all þe creatures whych are in heauen, & on þe erth, & vnder the erth, & in the see, & all that are in them, herde I sayinge, blessyng, honour, glory, & power be vnto hym that sytteth vpon þe seate, & vnto the lambe for euermore. Revelation 5:14 And the foure beastes sayd: Amen. And the .xxiiii. elders fell vpon their faces, and worshypped hym that lyueth for euermore.
