5:1 And I saw in the yad yamin of Him that sat on the kes (throne) a sefer written within and on the backside, Chotam (seal) with sheva chotamot (seven seals).
5:2 And I saw a strong messenger proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the sefer, and to loose the Chotamot (seals) thereof?
5:3 And no man in shamayim, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the sefer, neither to look thereon.
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the sefer, neither to look thereon.
5:5 And one of the Zekenim said to me:
"Weep not: behold, the Lion of the Shevet Yehudah, the Shoresh Dawid (Root of David), has prevailed to open the sefer, and to loose the sheva chotamot (seven Chotamot seals) thereof."
5:6 And I beheld, and, Hinnei, in the midst of the kes (throne) and of the Arbah Chayyot (Four living creatures), and in the midst of the Zekenim (Elders), stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having sheva karnayim (horns) and sheva eynayim (eyes), which are the seven Ruachim Elohim (אלהים) sent forth into kol ha earth.
5:7 And He came and took the sefer out of the yad yamin (right hand) of Him that sat upon the kes (throne).
5:8 And when He had taken the sefer, the Arbah Chayyot (Four living creatures) and esrim v'arba'ah Zekenim fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them nevel, and golden ke'arot (bowls) full of ketoreth , which are the tefillot of Kedoshim.Rev 8:3
5:9 And they sung a new song, saying:
"Thou are worthy to take the sefer, and to open the Chotamot seals thereof: for You wast slain, and have redeemed us to Elohim (אלהים) by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10 And have made us to our Elohim (אלהים) melekhim and kohenim: and we shall reign on the earth.
5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many malakim (messengers) round about the kes (throne) and the beasts and the Zekenim (elders): and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and v'alfei alafim (thousands of thousands);
5:12 Saying with a loud voice:
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive Oz (power), and osher (riches), and chokmah (wisdom), and Gevurah (strength), and hod (honour), and Kavod (glory), and Baruch (blessing).
5:13 And every creature which is in shamayim, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the yam (sea), and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, [be] to Him that sits upon the kes (throne), and to the Lamb le olah ve ed.
5:14 And the arbah chayyot (Four living creatures) said, Amein. And the esrim v'arba'ah Zekenim (elders) fell down and worshipped Him that lives for ever and ever.
