I am tracking the "one sitting on the throne" and right clicking each time Logos labels it as God, but when one gets to 4:11 and they sing "Worthy are you" Logos labels the addressee interestingly as Jesus.

Is there a reason behind this or is this an error?

I see no reason why the whole chapter is about God on the throne only to switch the addressee to Jesus without a proper reason why.

It doesn't make sense in light of Jesus as the Lamb in chapter 5 before God as the "one who sits on the throne."  Is there something in the Greek pointing forward to the Lamb that enters later in chapter 5 as does the son of man who enters later in Daniel 7 to make Logos label this as Jesus and not God as the addressee?  John has yet to introduce the Lamb yet back in 4:11.

I understand that chapter and verse numbers are a later addition, and my Greek is a bit rusty to make a connection from 4:11 being worshipped and John's seeing the Lamb in 5:6.  They do not seem to worship the Lamb until 5:9 once he takes the scroll. Is there a device grammatically allowing a foreshadow of worship of the Lamb in 4:11?  

Thanks!

I think it's an error.

If you compare the Person tagging and the Addressee tagging you see something interesting.

As you would expect both the person of God and Jesus appear (highlighted in yellow and blue below respectively). But God is never tagged as the addressee whereas Jesus is in Rev 4:8, 11 (as you noted) and then in 5:9 and following.

I think the Addressee tagging in 4:8 and 11 should match the Person tagging - and they should both indicate God.

How does one report such an error?

Right-click on one of the included words - and ensure that the word (not the reference) is selected on the right of the menu. Then click "Report typo" on the left

This will bring up another box allowing you to explain the issue.

Another option is to send an email to the address set up to receive details of problems with reverse interlinears - revint@logos.com
