Revelation 5:1-5New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Book with Seven Seals
5 I saw [a]in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a [b]book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals.2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the [c]book and to break its seals?”3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the [d]book or to look into it.4 Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the [e]book or to look into it;5 and one of the elders *said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the [f]book and its seven seals.”
Revelation 10:8-11New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, “Go, take the [a]book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.”9 So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he *said to me, “Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.”10 I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.11 And they *said to me, “You must prophesy again concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.”
