Revelation of John 1


The Revelation of Jesus Christ

1The revelation of Jesus Christ, which [2gave 3to him 1God], to show to his bondmen what must take place quickly. And he signified having sent by his angel to his bondman John, 2who testified the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, as much as indeed he saw. 3Blessed is the one reading, and the ones hearing the words of the prophecy, and heeding the things [2in 3it 1being written]; for the time is near.

To the Seven Assemblies

4John, to the seven assemblies -- the ones in Asia. Favor to you, and peace from the one being, and the one who was, and the one coming; and from the seven spirits which are before his throne, 5and from Jesus Christ, the [2witness 1trustworthy], the first-born of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To the one loving us, and bathing us from our sins in his blood, 6and made us a kingdom, priests to God, and to the father of him; to him be the glory and the might into the eons of the eons. Amen. 7Behold, he comes with the clouds, and [3shall see 4him 1every 2eye], even the ones which stabbed him. And [6shall lament 7over 8him 1all 2the 3tribes 4of the 5earth]. Yes, amen. 8I am even the Alpha and the Omega, beginning and end, says the Lord God, the being one, and the one who was, and the one coming, the almighty.

John on the Island of Patmos

9I John, your brother and partner in the affliction and kingdom and endurance in Christ Jesus, came to be on the island being called Patmos, on account of the word of God, and on account of the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I became in spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard [2sound 3behind 4me 1a great], as a trumpet, 11saying, What you see, write in a scroll, and send forth to the seven assemblies, in Ephesus, and in Smyrna, and in Pergamos, and in Thyatira, and in Sardis, and in Philadelphia, and in Laodicea! 12And there I turned to see the voice which spoke with me. And having turned I beheld seven [2lamp-stands 1golden]; 13and in the midst of the seven lamp-stands one likened to son of man, being clothed with a foot length robe, and being girded to the breasts [2belt 1with a golden]. 14 And his head and the hairs were white as [2wool 1white], as snow; and his eyes as a flame of fire; 15and his feet were likened to fine brass, as in a furnace being with fire; and his voice was as a sound [2waters 1of many]; 16and having [3in 5right 6hand 4his 2stars 1seven]; and from out of his mouth [3broadsword 2double-edged 1a sharp] going forth; and his appearance was as the sun shines in its power. 17And when I beheld him, I fell to his feet as dead. And he placed his right hand upon me, saying, Do not fear! I am the first and the last; 18and the living one, and I became dead, and behold I am living into the eons of the eons. Amen. And I have the keys of death and of Hades. 19Write then the things which you saw, and the things which are, and the things which are about to take place after these things! 20The mystery of the seven stars which you saw upon my right, and the seven [2lamp-stands 1golden]. The seven stars [2angels 3of the 4seven 5assemblies 1are]. And the seven lamp-stands which you saw [2seven 3assemblies 1are].
