Amplified Bible
1[THIS IS] the revelation of Jesus Christ [His unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to Him to disclose {and} make known to His bond servants certain things which must shortly {and} speedily come to pass in their entirety. And He sent and communicated it through His angel (messenger) to His bond servant John,G602G2424G5547G3739G2316G1325G846G1166G846G1401G3739G1163G1722G5034G1096G2532G649G4591G1223G846G32G846G1401G2491 2Who has testified to {and} vouched for all that he saw [in his visions], the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.G3739G3140G3056G2316G2532G3141G2424G5547G5037G3745G1492 3Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who reads aloud [in the assemblies] the word of this prophecy; and blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who hear [it read] and who keep themselves true to the things which are written in it [heeding them and laying them to heart], for the time [for them to be fulfilled] is near.G3107G314G2532G191G3056G4394G2532G5083G1125G1722G846G1063G2540G1451 4John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God's unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace (the peace of Christ's kingdom) from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,G2491G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G5485G5213G2532G1515G575G3588G5607G3801G2532G3588G2258G3801G2532G3588G2064G3801G2532G575G2033G4151G3739G2076G1799G846G2362 5And from Jesus Christ the faithful {and} trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed {and} freed us from our sins by His own blood,G2532G575G2424G5547G4103G3144G4416G1537G3498G2532G758G935G1093G25G2248G2532G3068G2248G575G2257G266G1722G846G129 6And formed us into a kingdom (a royal race), priests to His God and Father--to Him be the glory and the power {and} the majesty and the dominion throughout the ages {and} forever and ever. Amen (so be it).G2532G4160G2248G935G2532G2409G2316G2532G846G3962G846G1391G2532G2904G1519G165G165G281 7Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon Him {and} beat their breasts {and} mourn {and} lament over Him. Even so [must it be]. Amen (so be it).G2400G2064G3326G3507G2532G3956G3788G3700G846G2532G3748G1574G846G2532G3956G5443G1093G2875G1909G846G3483G281 8I am the Alpha and the Omega, {the Beginning and the End,} says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G3004G2962G3588G5607G3801G2532G3588G2258G3801G2532G3588G2064G3801G3841 9I, John, your brother and companion (sharer and participator) with you in the tribulation and kingdom and patient endurance [which are] in Jesus {Christ,} was on the isle called Patmos, [banished] on account of [my witnessing to] the Word of God and the testimony (the proof, the evidence) for Jesus {Christ.}G1473G2491G3588G2532G5216G80G2532G4791G1722G2347G2532G1722G932G2532G5281G2424G5547G1096G1722G3520G2564G3963G1223G3056G2316G2532G1223G3141G2424G5547 10I was in the Spirit [rapt in His power] on the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a great voice like the calling of a war trumpet,G1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11Saying, {I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last.} Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches {which are in Asia}--to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12Then I turned to see [whose was] the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands,G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13And in the midst of the lampstands [One] like a Son of Man, clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast.G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14His head and His hair were white like white wool, [as white] as snow, and His eyes [flashed] like a flame of fire.G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15His feet glowed like burnished (bright) bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16In His right hand He held seven stars, and from His mouth there came forth a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like the sun shining in full power at midday.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last,G2532G3753G1492G846G4098G4314G846G4228G5613G3498G2532G2007G846G1188G5495G1909G1691G3004G3427G5399G3361G1473G1510G4413G2532G2078 18And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19Write therefore the things you see, what they are [and signify] and what is to take place hereafter.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20As to the hidden meaning (the mystery) of the seven stars which you saw on My right hand and the seven lampstands of gold: the seven stars are the seven angels (messengers) of the seven assemblies (churches) and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
