and in the midst of the lampstands 1one like 2a son of man, 3clothed with a long robe and 4with a golden sash around his chest.
145The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. 6His eyes were like a flame of fire,
157his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and 8his voice was like the roar of many waters.
169In his right hand he held seven stars, 10from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and 11his face was like the sun shining 12in full strength.
1713When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But 14he laid his right hand on me, 15saying, "Fear not, 16I am the first and the last,18and the living one. 17I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and 18I have the keys of Death and Hades.1919Write therefore 20the things that you have seen, those that are and those that are to take place after this.20As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and 21the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and 22the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
