After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And

1 Μετὰ ταῦτα εἶδον, καὶ ἰδοὺ, θύρα ἠνεῳγμένη ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, καὶ

the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying,

φωνὴ πρώτη ἣν ἤκουσα ὡς σάλπιγγος λαλούσης μετ ̓ ἐμοῦ, λέγουσα,

Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.
Ἀνάβα ὧδε, καὶ δείξω σοι δεῖ γενέσθαι μετὰ ταῦτα.
Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in

2 καὶ εὐθέως ἐγενόμην ἐν πνεύματι· καὶ ἰδοὺ, θρόνος ἔκειτο ἐν τῷ

heaven,  and One sat on the throne.
οὐρανῷ, καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου καθήμενος·

And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance;

3 καὶ καθήμενος ἦν ὅμοιος ὁράσει λίθῳ ἰάσπιδι καὶ σαρδίνῳ· καὶ ἶρις

and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
κυκλόθεν τοῦ θρόνου ὅμοία ὁράσει σμαραγδίνῳ.
Around     the    throne   were      twenty-four   thrones,    and     on  the

4 καὶ κυκλόθεν τοῦ θρόνου θρόνοι εἴκοσι καὶ τέσσαρες· καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς

thrones    I saw           twenty-four                     elders                sitting,

θρόνους εἴδον τοὺς εἴκοσι καὶ τέσσαρας πρεσβυτέρους καθημένους,

  clothed               in       white       robes;    and they     had crowns of

περιβεβλημένους ἐν ἱματίοις λευκοῖς, καὶ ἔσχον ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς

gold    on     their        heads.
αὐτῶν στεφάνους χρυσοῦς.
And   from the throne    proceeded    lightnings,    thunderings, and voices.

5 καὶ ἐκ τοῦ θρόνου ἐκπορεύονται ἀστραπαὶ καὶ βρονταί καὶ φωναὶ.

Seven    lamps     of fire      were burning before   the throne, which are the

καὶ ἑπτὰ λαμπάδες πυρὸς καιόμεναι ἐνώπιον τοῦ θρόνου, αἵ εἰσι τὰ

seven  Spirits    of      God.
ἑπτὰ πνεύματα τοῦ Θεοῦ·

         Before   the  throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal.    And   in

6 καὶ ἐνώπιον τοῦ θρόνου θάλασσα ὑαλίνη, ὁμοία κρυστάλλῳ. καὶ ἐν

the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures

μέσῳ τοῦ θρόνου καὶ κύκλῳ τοῦ θρόνου τέσσαρα ζῶα γέμοντα

full of eyes   in front     and  in back.

ὀφθαλμῶν ἔμπροσθεν καὶ ὄπισθεν.

The first  living  creature  was  like a lion, the  second  living creature like

7 καὶ τὸ ζῶον τὸ πρῶτον ὅμοιον λέοντι, καὶ τὸ δεύτερον ζῶον ὅμοιον

a calf,   the third living  creature had  a   face    like     a man, and the fourth

μόσχῳ, καὶ τὸ τρίτον ζῶον ἔχον τὸ πρόσωπον ὡς ἀνθρώπος, καὶ τὸ

living    creature  was like a   flying eagle.
τέταρτον ζῶον ὅμοιον ἀετῷ πετωμένῳ·

The   four  living  creatures,  each   having   six   wings, were  full   of    eyes

8 καὶ τέσσαρα ζῶα, ἓν καθ ̓ ἑαυτο εἴχον ἀνὰ πτέρυγας ἕξ κυκλόθεν, καὶ

around     and        within.       And     they   do    not   rest   day     or     ἔσωθεν γέμοντα ὀφθαλμῶν, καὶ ἀνάπαυσιν οὐκ ἔχουσιν ἡμέρας καὶ

night,      saying:     Holy,   holy,     holy,   Lord      God      Almighty,    Who

νυκτὸς, λέγοντα, Ά̔γιος, ἅγιος, ἅγιος, Κύριος Θεὸς παντοκράτωρ,

was  and is   and is   to   come!
ἦν καὶ ὢν καὶ ἐρχόμενος.
Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him

9 καὶ ὅταν δώσουσι τὰ ζῶα δόξαν καὶ τιμὴν καὶ εὐχαριστίαν τῷ

who sits    on     the throne, who lives      forever       and        ever,
καθημένῳ ἐπὶ τῷ θρόνου, τῷ ζῶντι εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων,

      the       twenty-four      elders fall down                       before Him

10 πεσοῦνται οἱ εἴκοσι καὶ τέσσαρες πρεσβύτεροι ἐνώπιον τοῦ

who sits   on    the throne      and    worship    Him who lives          forever καθημένου ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου, καὶ προσκυνοῦσι τῷ ζῶντι εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας

and    ever,     and   cast          their     crowns        before            the   throne,

τῶν αἰώνων, καὶ βαλλοῦσι τοὺς στεφάνους αὐτῶν ἐνώπιον τοῦ θρόνου,



You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and       honor and           power;

11 Ἄξιος εἶ, Κύριε, λαβεῖν τὴν δόξαν , καὶ τὴν τιμὴν καὶ τὴν δύναμιν·

For You created all things,  And by Your will they exist and were created.

ὅτι σὺ ἔκτισας τὰ πάντα, καὶ διὰ τὸ θέλημά σου ἐσὶ καὶ ἐκτίσθησαν.
