Wesley's Notes for Revelation 4:11
4:11 Worthy art thou to receive - This he receives not only when he is thus praised, but also when he destroys his enemies and glorifies himself anew. The glory and the honour and the power - Answering the thrice - holy of the living creatures, verse 9. #Rev 4:9| For thou hast created all things - Creation is the ground of all the works of God: therefore, for this, as well as for his other works, will he be praised to all eternity. And through thy will they were - They began to be. It is to the free, gracious and powerfully - working will of Him who cannot possibly need anything that all things owe their first existence. And are created - That is, continue in being ever since they were created.
People's Bible Notes for Revelation 4:11
Re 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power. The chorus in which they join ascribes all glory to God as his right as the Creator. For thy pleasure they are and were created. "Because of thy will" (Revised Version). Not as in the Common Version. They do not say that God created all things "for his pleasure", but that his will was the efficient cause.

God created us for his own pleasue

This verse shows one of the reasons why Jehovah God should be worshipped because of all that he has done for Earth and mankind. It was only because he wanted to create the Earth and the people on it that we even exist. We should be grateful for this fact and give God the worship and honor that He deserves.

Indeed He is worthy of the praises, because Him alone He is God.
Mary Ellen Brod's comment on 2013-07-18 17:39:02:
I can never express my gratitude for the humbling honor of standing before the magnificent magnanimous Creator to praise Him and express gratitude for His love which allows me and all true believers to enter His courts through the mighty blood of Jesus, the sacrificial lamb of God. This is our main purpose for living.

There is only one version and it is the KJV version. And it clearly states for thy pleasure they are and were created.
