13 “I was watching in the night visions,
And behold, (A)One like the Son of Man,
Coming with the clouds of heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days,
And they brought Him near before Him.
14 (B)Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
That all (C)peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.
His dominion is (D)an everlasting dominion,
Which shall not pass away,
And His kingdom the one
Which shall not be destroyed.

14 (A)Blessed are those who [a]do His commandments, that they may have the right (B)to the tree of life, (C)and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 [b]But (D)outside are (E)dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

16 (F)“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. (G)I am the Root and the Offspring of David, (H)the Bright and Morning Star.”

17 And the Spirit and (I)the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” (J)And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

A Warning

18 [c]For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: (K)If anyone adds to these things, [d]God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, (L)God[e] shall take away his part from the [f]Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

I Am Coming Quickly

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be [g]with you all. Amen.

Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, (A)that I should bear (B)witness to the truth. Everyone who (C)is of the truth (D)hears My voice.”

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom(A)

Why (B)do the [a]nations [b]rage,
And the people plot a [c]vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the (C)rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His (D)Anointed,[d] saying,
“Let (E)us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens (F)shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have [e]set My King
[f]On My holy hill of Zion.”

“I will declare the [g]decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
(G)‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
(H)You shall [h]break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”

10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
12 [i]Kiss the Son, lest [j]He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When (I)His wrath is kindled but a little.
(J)Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
