Greeting to the Seven Churches

John to the seven churches that are in Asia:

Grace to you and peace from (A)him (B)who is and (C)who was and who is to come, and from (D)the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ (E)the faithful witness, (F)the firstborn of the dead, and (G)the ruler of kings on earth.

To (H)him who loves us and (I)has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us (J)a kingdom, (K)priests to (L)his God and Father, to him be (M)glory and (N)dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, (O)he is coming with the clouds, and (P)every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail[a] on account of him. Even so. Amen.

(Q)“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, (R)“who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
