1 a b of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his c things which must d come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his e unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 a is he that b, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the c is at hand.
4 John to the a churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which b, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven c which are before his throne;
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the a begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and b us from our sins in his own c,
6 And hath made us a and b unto God and his Father; to him be c and d for ever and ever. Amen.
7 Behold, he a with clouds; and every eye shall b him, and they also which pierced him: and all c of the earth shall d because of him. Even so, Amen.
8 I am a, the b and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the c.
9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and a of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
10 I was in the Spirit on the a b, and heard behind me a great c, as of a trumpet,
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the a and the last: and, What thou seest, b in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto c, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto d.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden a;
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the a, b with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his a were as a flame of b;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his a as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged a: and his b was as the c shineth in his strength.
17 And when I a 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:
18 I am he that a, and was b; and, behold, I am alive for c, Amen; and have the d of e and of death.
19 a the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven a are the b of the seven churches: and the seven c which thou sawest are the seven churches.
