10 And [kai] cried [krazo] with a loud [megas] voice, [phone] saying, [lego] Salvation [soteria] to our [hemon] God [theos] which [ho]sitteth[kathemai] upon [epi] the throne, [thronos] and [kai] unto the Lamb. [arnion]KJV-Interlinear
they cry out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation to our God who sits on
the throne, and to the Lamb." NASB
God and the Lamb both
identified as specific persons, are here identified as
