1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things
which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel
to His servant John, 1:2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the
testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 1:3 Blessed is he
who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those
things which are written in it; for the time is near. 1:4 John, to the
seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is
and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before
His throne, 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn
from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved
us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 1:6 and has made us kings
and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever
and ever. Amen. 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will
see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will
mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. 1:8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was
and who is to come, the Almighty."
22:13 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the
First and the Last." 22:14 Blessed are those who do His commandments,
that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through
the gates into the city. 22:15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually
immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a
lie. 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things
in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and
Morning Star." 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!"
And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come.
Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. 22:18 For I testify
to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone
adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written
in this book; 22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book
of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from
the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 22:20
He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly."
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
be with you all. Amen.
