Other Translations

Saying, Amen: Blessings, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

(Other translations were very similar.)

Amen - so be it - assent - approval

Strength - strong - magnitude - advantage

Barnes' Notes on the Bible
The word "Amen" here is a word strongly affirming the truth of what is said.
The general idea is, that the highest kind of praise is to be ascribed to God; everything excellent in character is to attributed to Him; every blessing which is received is to be traced to Him.
