These are the elders who sit on their thrones before God. 17The elders said: "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, the prophets, 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!" 19Then God's temple in heaven was opened.
