    The word for "trumpet" is only found in Matthew of the Gospels and used twice all the other times it is used in the Epistles and Revelation.

    Revelation 4:1 After these I looked and Behold! A door having opened in the heaven, and the sound, the first which I hear, as of trumpet talking with me saying: "Ascend! hence and I shall be showing to thee which-things is binding to be becoming after these.

    TexRec) Revelation 4:1 meta tauta eidon kai idou qura hnewgmenh en tw ouranw kai h fwnh h prwth hn hkousa wV salpiggoV laloushV met emou legousa anaba wde kai deixw soi a dei genesqai meta tauta

    Rotherham) Matthew 6:2 When, therefore, thou mayest be doing an alms, do not sound a trumpet/salpishV <4537> (5661) before thee, just as, the hypocrites, do in the synagogues and in the streets--that they may be glorified by men,--Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward.

    {ISA} Matthew 24:31 and He shall be sending His messengers with a trumpet/salpiggoV <4536> sound, great, and they shall be upon-together-gathering the out-called-ones of Him out of the four winds, from extremities of heavens till the extremities of them.

    Not sure about this highlighted greek word. Though it appears to signify straight-away, it seems to have the prefix "eu" which means "good" and the primary word used for "God". Interesting

    2 And immediately I became in spirit and behold! A throne set/laid in the heaven and upon the throne One-sitting.

    ByzMaj) Revelation 4:2 kai euqewV egenomhn en pneumati kai idou qronoV ekeito en tw ouranw kai epi ton qronon kaqhmenoV

    2112. eutheos adverb from 2117; directly, i.e. at once or soon:--anon, as soon as, forthwith, immediately, shortly, straightway.

    2117. euthus yoo-thoos' perhaps from 2095 and 5087; straight, i.e. (literally) level, or (figuratively) true; adverbially (of time) at once:--anon, by and by, forthwith, immediately, straightway.

    2095. eu neuter of a primary eus (good); (adverbially) well:--good, well (done).

    2316. theos of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with 3588) the supreme Divinity; figuratively, a magistrate; by Hebraism, very:--X exceeding, God, god(-ly, -ward).

    A lot of variations in the 3 greek MSS on this verse.

    4 And surrounding the throne, thrones, twenty four, and upon the thrones twenty four elders sitting, having been about-cast in garments, white. And upon the heads of them, crowns, golden.

    W-H) Revelation 4:4 kai kukloqen tou qronou qronoi eikosi *** tessareV kai epi touV qronouV eikosi tessaraV presbuterouV kaqhmenouV peribeblhmenouV ** imatioiV leukoiV kai epi taV kefalaV autwn stefanouV crusouV

    These appear to be in Ezekiel Chapts 1 and 3.

    More imagery from Ezekiel.

    8 And the four living-ones, one according to one to-them, having above wings, six compassing. And within they are being replete/full of eyes, and rest not they are having day and night saying: 'Holy Holy Holy Lord the GOD, the all-mighty, the One-was, and the One-being, and the One-coming'

    Ezekiel 1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were terrible, -and their rings full of eyes round about, had they four.

    Ezekiel 10:12 And all their flesh, and their back, and their hands and their wings, and the wheels were full of eyes round about, even their wheels which they four had

    9 And whenever shall be giving, the living-ones, glory and honor and thanking to the One sitting upon the throne to the One-living into the ages of the ages

    TexRec) Revelation 4:9 kai otan dwsousin ta zwa doxan kai timhn kai eucaristian tw kaqhmenw epi tou qronou tw zwnti eiV touV aiwnaV twn aiwnwn

    # 4352 used 60 times but only once in Paul's Epistles. Don't really know if the prefix for this word is "pro" or "pros".

    10 shall be falling the twenty [and] four elders before the One-sitting upon the throne and they-shall-be-worshipping/proskunousin <4352> (5719) to-the One-living into the ages of ages. And they shall be casting the crowns of them before the throne saying:

    W-H) Revelation 4:10 pesountai oi eikosi *** tessareV presbuteroi enwpion tou kaqhmenou epi tou qronou kai proskunhsousin tw zwnti eiV touV aiwnaV twn aiwnwn kai balousin touV stefanouV autwn enwpion tou qronou legonteV

    1 Corin 14:25 And thus the mysteries of the heart of him appearing is becoming, and thus falling on face he-shall-be-worshipping/proskunhsei <4352> (5692) to the GOD from messaging that the GOD thus in ye is.

    4352. proskuneo pros-koo-neh'-o from 4314 and a probable derivative of 2965 (meaning to kiss, like a dog licking his master's hand); to fawn or crouch to, i.e. (literally or figuratively) prostrate oneself in homage (do reverence to, adore):--worship.

    4314. pros pros a strengthened form of 4253; a preposition of direction; forward to, i.e. toward

    4253. pro pro a primary preposition; "fore", i.e. in front of, prior (figuratively, superior) to:--above, ago, before, or ever. In the comparative, it retains the same significations.

    2952. kunarion koo-nar'-ee-on neuter of a presumed derivative of 2965; a puppy:--dog.
