7"Behold, I am coming soon!5 Blessed6 is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book."78
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things.8 And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet9 of the angel who had been showing them to me.
But he said to me, "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book.10 Worship God!"1110
Then he told me, "Do not seal up12 the words of the prophecy of this book,13 because the time is near.1411
Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy."1512"Behold, I am coming soon!16 My reward is with me,17 and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.1813I am the Alpha and the Omega,19 the First and the Last,20 the Beginning and the End.2114"Blessed are those who wash their robes,22 that they may have the right to the tree of life23 and may go through the gates24 into the city.2515Outside26 are the dogs,27 those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.16"I, Jesus,28 have sent my angel29 to give youa this testimony for the churches.30 I am the Root31 and the Offspring of David,32 and the bright Morning Star."3317
The Spirit34 and the bride35 say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.3618
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:37 If anyone adds anything to them,38 God will add to him the plagues described in this book.3919
And if anyone takes words away40 from this book of prophecy,41 God will take away from him his share in the tree of life42 and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
