The Patmos Vision

aj I, John, your ak brother and al fellow partaker in the tribulation and am kingdom and
Or steadfastness
ao perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos ap because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
10 I was
Or in spirit
ar in the Spirit on as the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice at like the sound of a trumpet,
11 saying, au Write in a
Or scroll
book what you see, and send it to the aw seven churches: to ax Ephesus and to ay Smyrna and to az Pergamum and to ba Thyatira and to bb Sardis and to bc Philadelphia and to bd Laodicea.”

Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw be seven golden lampstands;
13 and bf in the middle of the lampstands I saw one bg like
Or the Son of Man
a son of man, bi clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and bj girded across His chest with a golden sash.
14 His head and His bk hair were white like white wool, like snow; and bl His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His bm feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His bn voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held bo seven stars, and out of His mouth came a bp sharp two-edged sword; and His bq face was like br the sun
Lit shines
shining in its strength.

When I saw Him, I bt fell at His feet like a dead man. And He bu placed His right hand on me, saying, bv Do not be afraid; bw I am the first and the last,
18 and the bx living One; and I
Lit became
bz was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have ca the keys of death and of Hades.
19 Therefore cb write cc the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place cd after these things. 20 “As for the ce mystery of the cf seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the cg seven golden lampstands: the ch seven stars are the angels of ci the seven churches, and the seven cj lampstands are the seven churches.
