Vision of the Son of Man

Revelation 1

9 I, John, 1 both your brother and w companion in the tribulation and x kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 y I was in the Spirit on z the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, 2 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last," and, "What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches 3 which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea."

12 Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned b I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 c and in the midst of the seven lampstands d One like the Son of Man, e clothed with a garment down to the feet and f girded about the chest with a golden band. 14 His head and g hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and h His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 i His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and j His voice as the sound of many waters; 16 k He had in His right hand seven stars, l out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, m and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

17 And n when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But o He laid His right hand on me, saying 4 to me, "Do not be afraid; p I am the First and the Last. 18 q "I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, r I am alive forevermore. Amen. And s I have the keys of 5 Hades and of Death. 19 6 "Write the things which you have t seen, u and the things which are, v and the things which will take place after this. 20 "The 7 mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are w the 8 angels of the seven churches, and x the seven lampstands 9 which you saw are the seven churches.
