The 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:
 Who bare
record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
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.
 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;
 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 blood,
 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and
dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
 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.
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.
 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 Christ.
 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a
great voice, as of a trumpet,
 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.
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
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 golden girdle.
 His head and his hairs were white like wool,
as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they
burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
 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 strength.
 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:
 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.
 Write the things which thou
hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
 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.
 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars
in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
 I know thy works, and
thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them
which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
 And hast borne, and hast patience,
and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
 Nevertheless I have somewhat against
thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent,
and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his
place, except thou repent.
 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh
will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
 And unto the angel of
the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which
say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
 Fear none of those things which
thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall
have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
 He that hath
an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath
the sharp sword with two edges;
 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's
seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas
