Diaglott(i) 1 A revelation of Jesus Anointed, which gave to him the God, to point out to the bond-servants of himself the things it behooves to have done with speed, and he signified having sent by means of the messenger of himself to the bond-servant of himself to John; 2 who testified the word of the God, and the testimony of Jesus Anointed, what things he saw. 3 Blessed the one reading, and those hearing the words of the prophecy, and keeping strictly the things in it having been written; the for season near. 4 John to the seven congregations to those in the Asia; favor to you and peace from the one existing and the one who was and the one coming; and from the seven spirits, which is in presence of the throne of him; 5 and from Jesus Anointed, the witness the faithful, the first-born of the dead-ones, and the prince of the kings of the earth; to the one loving us and having washed us from the sins of us in the blood of himself, 6 and made us a kingdom, priests to the God and Father of himself, to him the glory and the strength for the ages of the ages; so be it. 7 Lo, he comes with the clouds, and shall see him every eye, and those who him pierced; and shall mourn over him all the tribes of the earth; yes, so be it. 8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, says Lord the God, the one existing and the one who was and the one coming, the almighty. 9 I John, the brother of you, and co-partner in the affliction and kingdom and patience of Jesus Anointed, was in the island that being call Patmos, on account of the word of the God, and on account of the testimony of Jesus Anointed. 10 I was in spirit in the Lord’s day; and I heard behind of me a voice loud as of a trumpet, 11 saying: What thou seest do thou write for a scroll, and send to the seven congregations, to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice which spoke with me; and having turned I saw seven lampstands golden, 13 and in midst of the seven lampstands like to a son of man, having on a garment reaching to the foot, and having been girded about at the breasts a girdle golden; 14 the but head of him and the hairs, white as wool white, as snow; and the eyes of him as a flame of fire; 15 and the feet of him like to fine white brass, as in a furnace having been set on fire; and the voice of him as a vice of waters many; 16 and having in the right of himself hand stars seven; and out of the mouth of him a broad sword two-mouthed sharp proceeding; and the appearance of him, as the sun shines in the power of himself. 17 And when I saw him I fell at the feet of him, as dead; and he placed the right of himself on me, saying: Not do thou fear; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living one; even I was dead, and lo living I am for the ages of the ages; and I have the keys of the death and of the unseen. 19 Write thou therefore the things thou sawest, even the things are, and the things about to occur after these; 20 the secret of the seven stars which thou sawest on the right of me, and the seven lampstands the golden. The seven stars, messengers of the seven congregations are; and the lampstands the seven, seven congregations are.
