Revelation 1:7-9 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
7 Behold, he comes with clouds, and all eyes shall see him, and they also who pierced him. And all the kindreds of the earth shall wail. Even so. Amen. 8 I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord Almighty, who is and who was and who is to come.
9 I, John, your brother and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience which is in Jesus Christ, was in the isle of Patmos for the word of God, and for the witnessing of Jesus Christ.
