I, (A)John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, (B)I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me, (C)but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those (D)who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”

10 And he said to me, (E)“Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. 11 (F)Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”

12 “Behold, (G)I am coming soon, (H)bringing my recompense with me, (I)to repay each one for what he has done. 13 (J)I am the Alpha and the Omega, (K)the first and the last, (L)the beginning and the end.”

14 Blessed are those who (M)wash their robes,[a] so that they may have the right to (N)the tree of life and that (O)they may enter the city by the gates. 15 (P)Outside are (Q)the dogs (R)and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

16 (S)“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things (T)for the churches. I am (U)the root and (V)the descendant of David, (W)the bright morning star.”
