View In My Bible
1 Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, to shew to his bondmen what must shortly take place; a and he signified b [it], sending by his angel, to his bondman John, 2 who testified the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, all things that he saw. 3 Blessed [is] he that reads, and they that hear the words c of the prophecy, and keep the things written in it; for the time [is] near. 4 John to the seven assemblies which [are] in Asia: Grace to you and peace from [him] who is, and who was, and who is to come; and from the seven Spirits which [are] before his throne; 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from d the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us, and has washed us from our sins in his blood, 6 and made e us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father: to him [be] the glory and the might to the ages of ages. Amen. 7 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they which f have pierced him, and all the tribes of the land g shall wail because of him. Yea. Amen. 8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, h saith [the] Lord God, i he who is, and who was, and who is to come, j the Almighty. k 9 I John, your brother and fellow-partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and patience, l in Jesus, was m in the island called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus. 10 I became in [the] Spirit n on the Lord's day, o and I heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet, 11 saying, What thou seest write in a book, and send p to the seven assemblies: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12 And I turned back to see the voice which spoke with me; and having turned, I saw seven golden lamps, q 13 and in the midst of the [seven] lamps [one] like [the] r Son of man, clothed with a garment reaching to the feet, and girt about at the breasts with a golden girdle: 14 his head and hair white like white wool, as snow; and his eyes as a flame of fire; 15 and his feet like fine s brass, as burning in a furnace; and his voice as the voice of many waters; 16 and having in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth a sharp two-edged sword going forth; and his countenance as the sun shines in its power. 17 And when I saw him I fell at his feet as dead; and he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; *I* am the first and the last, 18 and the living one: and I became t dead, and behold, I am living to the ages of ages, and have the keys of death and of hades. u 19 Write therefore what thou hast seen, and the things that are, and the things that are v about to be after these. 20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou hast seen on my right hand, and the seven golden lamps. -- The seven stars are angels w of the seven assemblies; and the seven lamps are seven assemblies.
