The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

Main Verses

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe
of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the
seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of
the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been
slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.
장로들 중의 한 사람이 내게 이르되, 울지 말라. 보라, 유다 지파의 사자 곧 다윗의 뿌리가
이기셨으므로 그 책을 펴며 그것의 일곱 봉인을 떼시리라, 하더라. 또 내가 보니, 보라, 왕좌와 네 짐승의 한가운데와 장로들의 한가운데에 전에 죽임을 당한 것 같은 [어린양]께서 서 계시더라. 그분께 일곱 뿔과 일곱 눈이 있었는데 이것들은 온 땅 안으로 보내어진 [하나님]의 일곱 [영]이라
