The Revelation of Jesus Christ

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God R1 gave Him to show R2 to His bond-servants, the R3 things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated F1 it by R4 His angel to His bond-servant John, R5 2 who testified to the R6 word of God and to the R7 testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3 Blessed R8 is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed F2 the things which are written in it; for R9 the time is near.

Message to the Seven Churches

4 John R10 to the R11 seven churches that are in Asia: R12 Grace R13 to you and peace, from Him R14 who is and who was and who is F3 to come, and from the R15 seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the R16 faithful witness, the firstborn R17 of the dead, and the ruler R18 of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves R19 us and released us from our sins by F4 His blood-- 6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, R20 priests R20 to His R21 F5 God and Father--to R22 Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 BEHOLD R23 , HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every R24 eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn R25 over Him. So it is to be. Amen.

8 "I am the R26 Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord R27 God, "who R28 is and who was and who is F6 to come, the Almighty."

The Patmos Vision

9 I, R29 John, your brother R30 and fellow R31 partaker in the tribulation and kingdom R32 and perseverance R33 F7 which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because R34 of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was in R35 F8 the Spirit on the R36 Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like R37 the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, "Write R38 in a book F9 what you see, and send it to the seven R39 churches: to Ephesus R40 and to Smyrna R41 and to Pergamum R42 and to Thyatira R43 and to Sardis R44 and to Philadelphia R45 and to Laodicea." R46

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven R47 golden lampstands; 13 and in R48 the middle of the lampstands I saw one like R49 a F10 son of man, clothed R50 in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded R51 across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair R52 were white like white wool, like snow; and His R53 eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet R54 were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice R55 was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven R56 stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp R57 two-edged sword; and His face R58 was like the R59 sun shining F11 in its strength.

17 When I saw Him, I fell R60 at His feet like a dead man. And He placed R61 His right hand on me, saying, "Do R62 not be afraid; I R63 am the first and the last, 18 and the living R64 One; and I was R65 F12 dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the R66 keys of death and of Hades. 19 "Therefore write R67 the R68 things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after R69 these things. 20 "As for the mystery R70 of the seven R71 stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven R72 golden lampstands: the seven R71 stars are the angels of the R73 seven churches, and the seven lampstands R74 are the seven churches.
