A. 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.
B. 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?
C. 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
B’. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
A’. 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.
