“Then the twenty-four presbyters,
Who sit on their thrones
Fell on their faces
And worshipped God.”
καὶ οἱ εἴκοσι τέσσαρες πρεσβύτεροι οἱ ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ καθήμενοι ἐπὶ τοὺς θρόνους αὐτῶν, ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησαν τῷ Θεῷ,
John said, “Then the twenty-four presbyters (καὶ οἱ εἴκοσι τέσσαρες πρεσβύτεροι), who sit on their thrones (καθήμενοι ἐπὶ τοὺς θρόνους αὐτῶν) before God (οἱ ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ), fell on their faces (ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν) and worshipped God (καὶ προσεκύνησαν τῷ Θεῷ).” John reminded everyone that the twenty-four presbyters that sit on their thrones around God fell on their faces and worshipped God. This was not to say that they had not worshipped God before this time. How do you worship God?
