One Like a Son of Man

9 I, John,1 your brother and companion in the suffering2 and kingdom3 and patient endurance4 that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God5 and the testimony of Jesus.6 10 On the Lord's Day7 I was in the Spirit,8 and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,9 11 which said: "Write on a scroll what you see10 and send it to the seven churches:11 to Ephesus,12 Smyrna,13 Pergamum,14 Thyatira,15 Sardis,16 Philadelphia17 and Laodicea."18 12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands,19 13 and among the lampstands20 was someone "like a son of man,"a21 dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet22 and with a golden sash around his chest.23 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire.24 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace,25 and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters.26 16 In his right hand he held seven stars,27 and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword.28 His face was like the sun29 shining in all its brilliance. 17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet30 as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me31 and said: "Do not be afraid.32 I am the First and the Last.33 18 I am the Living One; I was dead,34 and behold I am alive for ever and ever!35 And I hold the keys of death and Hades.36 19 "Write, therefore, what you have seen,37 what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand38 and of the seven golden lampstands39 is this: The seven stars are the angelsb of the seven churches,40 and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.41
