The voices said:
"The kingdom of the world has now become the kingdom of our Lord [God] and
of his Christ.
And he will rule forever and ever."
16Then the 24 elders bowed down on their faces and worshiped God. These are the
elders who sit on their thrones before God.

"We give thanks to you,
Lord God All-Powerful.
You are the One who is
and who [always] was.
We thank you because
you have used your great power
and have begun to rule!
18The people of the world were angry; but now is the time for your anger.
Now is the time for the dead people
to be judged.
It is time to reward your servants,
and to reward your holy people,
the people, great and small, who respect you.
It is time to destroy those people
who destroy the earth!"
