When John experiences his revelation in the book of the same name, he has a vision of God the Father sitting upon a throne and holding in his right hand 'a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals' (Revelation 5:1 NIV). John is distraught to discover that 'no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it' (Revelation 5:3 NIV).

Psalm 1 is one of the more well-known of the Psalms, if not the best known. Consisting of only six verses its message is direct, and it seeks to draw a direct comparison between the way and destiny of the wicked, and the way of the righteous:
‘Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers.’ (Psalm 1:1)
