Other Translations - Revelation
Also before the throne there was something that looked like a sea of glass.
It was clear like crystal.
In front of the throne and on each side of it there were four living things.
These living things had eyes all over them, in front and in back.
7The first living thing was like a lion. The second was like a cow. The
third had a face like a man. The fourth was like a flying eagle. 8Each of these four living things had six wings. These living things were
covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day and night these four living
things never stop saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God All-Powerful.
He [always] was, he is, and he is coming."
9These living things give glory and honor and thanks to the One who sits on
the throne. He is the One who lives forever and ever. And every time the living
things do this,
10the 24 elders bow down before the One who sits on the throne. The elders
worship him who lives forever and ever. The elders put their crowns down before
the throne and say: 11"Our Lord and God!
You are worthy to receive glory and
honor and power.
You made all things.
Everything existed and was made
because you wanted it." (ERV)
...and before the throne, as it were a sea of glass like a crystal; and in the
midst of the throne, and round about the throne, four living creatures full of
eyes before and behind. 7And the first creature (was) like a lion, and the second creature like a calf,
and the third creature had a face as of a man, and the fourth creature (was)
like a flying eagle. 8and the four living creatures, having each one of them six wings, are full of
eyes round about and within: and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy,
holy, holy, (is) the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to
come. 9And when the living creatures shall give glory and honor and thanks to him
that sitteth on the throne, to him that liveth for ever and ever, 10the four and twenty elders shall fall down before him that sitteth on the
throne, and shall worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and shall cast
their crowns before the throne, saying, 11Worthy art thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the honor and
the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy will they were,
and were created.
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the
midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes
before and behind.
7And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the
third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full
of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord
God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
9And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the
throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and
worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the
11Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast
created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
