The book sealed with seven seals:
Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the ryghte hand of him that sate in þe throne, a boke wrytten, wythin and on the backsyde, sealed with .vij. seales. Revelation 5:2 And I sawe a stronge angel, which cryed wyth a loude voyce: Who is worthy to open the boke, and to lose the seales therof? Revelation 5:3 And no man in heauen nor in earth, neyther vnder the earth, was able to open the boke, neyther to loke theron. Revelation 5:4 And I wepte muche, because no man was founde worthy to open and to reade the boke, neyther to loke theron. Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders sayd vnto me: wepe not: beholde a Lyon beinge of the tribe of Iuda, the rote of Dauid, hath obtayned to open the boke, and to lowse the .vij. seales therof. Revelation 5:6 And I behelde, and lo, in the middes of the seate, and of the .iiij. beastes, and in the myddes of the elders, stode a lambe as though he had bene kylled, whyche had .vij. hornes and .vij. eyes, which are the spirites of God, sente into all the worlde. Revelation 5:7 And he came and toke the boke out of the ryght hand of him that sate vpon the seate. Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the boke, the .iiij. beastes, and .xxiiij. elders fel doune before the lambe, hauinge harpes and golden vialles full of odoures, whyche are the prayers of saynctes,
which only the Lamb that was slain is worthy to open.
Revelation 5:9 and they songe a new songe saiyng: thou art worthy to take the boke, and to open the seales therof: for thou wast kylled, & hast redemed vs by thy bloud out of al kynredes, and tonges, and people, and nacions Revelation 5:10 and hast made vs to our God, kynges, and priestes, & we shal reigne on the earth. Revelation 5:11 And I behelde, and I heard the voyce of many angels about the throne, and about the beastes, and the elders, and I heard thousande thousandes,
Therefore the elders praise him, having confessed that he redeemed them with his blood.
Revelation 5:12 sayinge wyth a loud voyce: Worthy is the lamb that was kylled to receiue power, and riches, and wysdome, and strength, and honoure, & glorye and blessing. Revelation 5:13 And al creatures whiche are in heauen, and on the earth, and vnder the earth, and in the sea, and al that are in them hearde I saiynge: blessing, honour, glory, and power be vnto him that sytteth vpon þe seate, and to the Lambe for euermore. Revelation 5:14 And þe foure beastes sayd Amen. And the .xxiiij. elders fel vpon theyr faces, and worshypped hym that liueth for euermore.
