12"Behold, 5I am comingquickly, and My 6reward is with Me, 7to render to everymanaaccording to what he hasdone .13"I am the 8Alpha and the Omega, 9the first and the last, 10the beginning and the end."14Blessed are those who 11wash their robes, so that they may have the right to 12the tree of life, and may 13enter by the 14gates into the city.

He who 35testifies to thesethingssays, "Yes, 36I am comingquickly."Amen. 37Come, LordJesus.
