f. 5v · The vision of God enthroned in heaven (Ap. 4, 2-5)

“And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold there was a throne set in heaven, and upon the throne one sitting. [...] And round about the throne were [...] four and twenty ancients sitting, clothed in white garments, and on their heads were crowns of gold. And from the throne proceeded lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there were seven lamps burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God. And in the sight of the throne was, as it were, a sea of glass like to crystal.”
