And the head of him and his hairs were white, as white wool, and as snow; and the eyes of him as flame of fire,
and his feet like to latten [and his feet like to dross of gold, or latten], as in a burning chimney; and the voice of him as the voice of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars, and a sword sharp on ever-either side [and a sword sharp on both sides] went out of his mouth; and his face as the sun shineth in his virtue.
And when I had seen him, I felled down [I fell down] at his feet, as dead. And he putted his right hand on me, and said [+And he put his right hand upon me, saying], Do not thou dread; I am the first and the last;
and I am alive, and I was dead; and lo! I am living into worlds of worlds, and I have the keys of death and of hell.
Therefore write thou which things thou hast seen, and which be, and which it behooveth to be done after these things.
The sacrament of the seven stars [They mystery of seven stars], which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks; the seven stars be [the] angels of the seven churches, and the seven candlesticks be [the] seven churches.
