Revelation 5:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)

And when the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures saw the Lamb had taken the scroll, they fell facedown at the feet of the Lamb and worshiped him. Each of them had a harp and golden bowls brimming full of sweet fragrant incense—which are the prayers of God’s holy lovers. And they were all singing this new song of praise to the Lamb:

“Because you were slaughtered for us,
    you are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals.
    Your blood was the price paid to redeem us.
    You purchased us to bring us to God
    out of every tribe, language, people group, and nation.
10 You have chosen us to serve our God
    and formed us into a kingdom of priests
    who reign[a] on the earth.”
