The Son of Man Is Given Dominion

13 “I saw in the night visions,

and (A)behold, with the clouds of heaven
    there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the (B)Ancient of Days
    and was presented before him.
14 (C)And to him was given dominion
    and glory and a kingdom,
that all (D)peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him;
(E)his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
    which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one
    that shall not be destroyed.

(G)His eyes were like a flame of fire, 15 (H)his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and (I)his voice was like the roar of many waters. 16 (J)In his right hand he held seven stars, (K)from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and (L)his face was like the sun shining (M)in full strength.

17 (N)When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But (O)he laid his right hand on me, (P)saying, “Fear not, (Q)I am the first and the last, 18 and the living one. (R)I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and (S)I have the keys of Death and Hades.
