Revelation 5:1-14

This chapter continues with John detailing events taking place in heaven.

Revelation 5:1-5:
5:1And I saw on the right (hand) of the (One) sitting-down on the throne a book having been written2 from-inside and from-behind having been sealed-down2 with seven seals. .2And I saw a strong angel heralding-forth in a great sound, "Who (is) worthy to open the book and to loose its seals?" .3And not-one used-to-be-able in the heaven nor on the earth nor down-under the earth to open the book nor to observe it. .4And I used-to-cry much because not-one worthy was found to open the book nor to observe it. .5And one from the elders says to me, "You must not cry; look!, the lion, the (lion) out-from the tribe of Judah, the root of David, was-victorious to open the book and its seven seals."

John writes: And I perceived (knew with my mind) on the right hand of the One (God) sitting down on the throne (refer to Revelation 4:2 and 3)...

And I saw an angel who was inherently strong (he had strength) proclaiming in a great sound (a large voice, loudly)...

And during that period of time not-one (none, no animal, bird, etc, human, or spirit) was continuing to be able (had the able-power, the capability)...

...to open the book nor to look at it (to mentally envision, be mentally aware of, to contemplate its contents).

And I was continuing to cry much (during that past time, historically, I was weeping, shedding tears, expressing grief, mourning) because there was none worthy found at any location to open the book nor to observe it.

And one from the elders (refer to Revelation 4:4, 10 and 11) says to me...

The usage of the word "lion" when referring to the Lord Jesus Christ by this elder emphasizes the viewpoint of victory and completion of what was required by God for redemption and salvation.
