Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him,
to shew unto his servants things which must shortly
come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his
angel unto his servant John:
1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the
testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he
1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear
the words of this prophecy, and keep those things
which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and
which was, and which is to come; and from the seven
Spirits which are before his throne;
1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful
witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the
prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that
loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own
1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and
his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever
and ever. Amen.
1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye
shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and
all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.
Even so, Amen.
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the
ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and
which is to come, the Almighty.
1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion
in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of
Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos,
for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus
1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and
heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the
last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and
send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia;
unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos,
and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with
me. And being turned, I saw seven golden
1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one
like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment
down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a
1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as
white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they
burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of
1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and
out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and
his countenance was as the sun shineth in his
1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me,
Fear not; I am the first and the last:
1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold,
I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of
hell and of death.
1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the
things which are, and the things which shall be
1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou
sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the
seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which
thou sawest are the seven churches.
