Then he told me, "Do not seal up1 the words of the prophecy of this book,2 because the time is near.311
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."412"Behold, I am coming soon!5 My reward is with me,6 and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.713I am the Alpha and the Omega,8 the First and the Last,9 the Beginning and the End.1014"Blessed are those who wash their robes,11 that they may have the right to the tree of life12 and may go through the gates13 into the city.1415Outside15 are the dogs,16 those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.16"I, Jesus,17 have sent my angel18 to give youa this testimony for the churches.19 I am the Root20 and the Offspring of David,21 and the bright Morning Star."2217
The Spirit23 and the bride24 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.2518
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:26 If anyone adds anything to them,27 God will add to him the plagues described in this book.2819
And if anyone takes words away29 from this book of prophecy,30 God will take away from him his share in the tree of life31 and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
He who testifies to these things32 says, "Yes, I am coming soon."33 Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.3421
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people.35 Amen.
