As you can tell from my eschatology page, I have a great interest in "End Times" theology, and this includes the book of Revelation.  One of the many aspects of this book that intrigues me are its 'future-seeing' depictions -- including cosmic/Heavenly scenes that I will (in faith) be participating in myself -- namely, those times when all believers will speak/sing in unison before our Creator!

This page attempts to highlight those Revelation passages in the UBS5 original Greek, a literal interlinear translation of the Greek text, the English translation by Bill Mounce, and finally some matching images from the Codex Sinaiticus -- a manuscript of the Christian Bible written in the middle of the fourth century, which contains the earliest complete copy of the Christian New Testament!

Revelation 5:13 (UBS5/Interlinear/Mounce)

καὶ πᾶν κτίσμα ὃ ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ 

And every creature which is in the heaven 

Then I heard every creature in heaven

καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς 

and upon the earth 

and on earth 

καὶ ὑποκάτω τῆς γῆς 

and underneath the earth 

and under the earth 

καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης 

and upon the sea 

and in the sea, 

καὶ τὰ ἐν αὐτοῖς πάντα ἤκουσα λέγοντας,

and in them everything I hear saying,

and all that is in them, saying,

Τῷ καθημένῳ ἐπὶ τῷ θρόνῳ καὶ τῷ ἀρνίῳ

be praise and honor and glory and might

εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων.
