(A)Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for (B)the time is near.

Greeting the Seven Churches

John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:

Grace to you and peace from Him (C)who is and (D)who was and who is to come, (E)and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, (F)the faithful (G)witness, the (H)firstborn from the dead, and (I)the ruler over the kings of the earth.

To Him (J)who [a]loved us (K)and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has (L)made us [b]kings and priests to His God and Father, (M)to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Behold, He is coming with (N)clouds, and every eye will see Him, even (O)they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.

(P)“I am the Alpha and the Omega, [c]the Beginning and the End,” says the [d]Lord, (Q)“who is and who was and who is to come, the (R)Almighty.”
