The Scroll With Seven Seals And The Lamb

1 I saw, in the right hand of him who sat on the throne, a book written inside and outside, sealed shut with seven seals.

1 I saw (a)in the right hand of Him who (A)sat on the throne a (b)(B)book written inside and on the back, (C)sealed up with seven seals.

1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

1 Then I saw in the right hand of the One seated on the throne a scroll with writing on the inside and on the back,(A) sealed with seven seals.

1 Then I saw in the right hand of the one who sits on the throne a scroll written on the inside and on the outside, sealed with seven seals.

2 I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?"

2 And I saw a (D)strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the (c)book and to break its seals?”

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

2 I also saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”

2 I also saw a powerful angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?"

3 No one in heaven above, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look in it.

3 And no one (E)in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the (d)book or to look into it.

3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or even to look in it.

3 No one in heaven, on earth, or under the earth could open the scroll or look inside it.

4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look in it.

4 Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the (e)book or to look into it;

4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

4 And I cried and cried because no one was found worthy to open(a) the scroll or even to look in it.

4 I began to cry bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside it.

5 One of the elders said to me, "Don't weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome; he who opens the book and its seven seals."

5 and one of the elders *said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the (F)Lion that is (G)from the tribe of Judah, the (H)Root of David, has overcome so as to open the (f)book and its seven seals.”

5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Stop crying. Look! The Lion from the tribe of Judah,(B) the Root of David,(C) has been victorious(D) so that He may open the scroll and(b) its seven seals.”

5 "Stop crying," one of the elders told me. "Look! The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered. He can open the scroll and its seven seals."

6 I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.

6 And I saw (g)between the throne (with the four living creatures) and (I)the elders a (J)Lamb standing, as if (K)slain, having seven (L)horns and (M)seven eyes, which are (N)the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.

6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

6 Then I saw One like a slaughtered lamb standing between(c) the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God(E) sent into all the earth.

6 Then I saw a lamb standing in the middle of the throne, the four living creatures, and the elders. He looked like he had been slaughtered. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent into all the earth.

7 Then he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne.

7 And He came and took (O)the book out of the right hand of Him who (P)sat on the throne.

7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

7 He came and took the scroll(d) out of the right hand of the One seated on the throne.

7 He went and took the scroll from the right hand of the one who sits on the throne.
