The Revelation of Saint John the Divine
HE Revelation of Jesus Christ,
which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which
must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it
by his angel unto his servant John:
1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the
testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that
hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which
are written therein: for the time is at hand.
1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace
be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which
was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are
before his throne;
1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful
witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the
prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and
washed us from our sins in his own blood,
1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his
Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.
1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall
see him, and they also which pierced him: and all
kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so,
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,
saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come,
1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in
tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ,
was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and
for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard
behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega,
the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book,
and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia;
unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto
Thyatira, and unto Sardis, unto Philadelphia, and unto
1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.
And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks
one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment
down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden
1:14 His head and his hairs were white
like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a
flame of fire;
1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they
burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many
1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out
of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance
was as the sun shineth in his strength.
1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And
he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
1:18 I am he that liveth,
and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and
have the keys of hell and of death.
1:19 Write the things which thou
hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall

stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven
churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the

angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he
that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in
the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2:2 I know thy works, and thy
labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them
which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are
apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
2:3 And hast borne, and hast
patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not
2:4 Nevertheless I have
somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first
2:5 Remember therefore from whence
thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I
will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick
out of his place, except thou repent.
2:6 But this thou hast, that thou
hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also
2:7 He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in
the midst of the paradise of God.
2:8 And unto the angel of the
church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the
last, which was dead, and is alive;
2:9 I know thy works, and
tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know
the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but
are the synagogue of Satan.
2:10 Fear none of those things
which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast
some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye
shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death,
and I will give thee a crown of life.
2:11 He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that
overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
2:12 And to the angel of the
church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the
sharp sword with two edges;
2:13 I know thy works and where
thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and
thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even
in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr,
who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
2:14 But I have a few things
against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the
doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock
before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto
idols, and to commit fornication.
2:15 So hast thou also them that
hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I
2:16 Repent; or else I will come
unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword
of my mouth.
2:17 He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will
give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written,
which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth
2:18 And unto the angel of the
church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God,
who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet
are like fine brass;
2:19 I know thy works, and
charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy
works; and the last to be more than the
2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few
things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel,
which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my
servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed
2:21 And I gave her space to
repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
2:22 Behold, I will cast her into
a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great
tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
2:23 And I will kill her children
with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which
searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one
of you according to your works.
2:24 But unto you I say, and unto
the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and
which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will
put upon you none other burden.
2:25 But that which ye have
already hold fast till I come.
2:26 And he that overcometh, and
keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over
2:27 And he shall rule them with a
rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to
shivers: even as I received of my Father.

ND unto the
angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that
hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy
works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art
3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen
the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not
found thy works perfect before God.
3:3 Remember therefore how thou
hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If
therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief,
and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon
3:4 Thou hast a few names even in
Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall
walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
3:5 He that overcometh, the same
shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his
name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name
before my Father, and before his angels.
3:6 He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:7 And to the angel of the church
in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he
that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth,
and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man
3:8 I know thy works: behold, I
have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for
thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast
not denied my name.
3:9 Behold, I will make them of
the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not,
but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before
thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
3:10 Because thou hast kept the
word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of
temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them
that dwell upon the earth.
3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold
that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy
3:12 Him that overcometh will I
make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more
out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name
of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which
cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon
him my new name.
3:13 He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:14 And unto the angel of the
church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen,
the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of
3:15 I know thy works, that thou
art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or

lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my

rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and
knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor,
and blind, and naked:
3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me
gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white
raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame
of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with
eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke
and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will
come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with

a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I
heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which
said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be
4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit; and, behold, a
throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a
sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the
throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
4:4 And round about the throne were four and
twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders
sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads
crowns of gold.
4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and
thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of
fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of

glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and
round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes
before and behind.
4:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the
second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a
man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about
him; and they were full of eyes within: and they
rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God
Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and
thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and
4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him
that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever
and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy
pleasure they are and were created.

ND I saw in the right hand of him
that sat on the throne a book written within and on the
backside, sealed with seven seals.
5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud
voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals
5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under
the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to
open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not:
behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath
prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals
5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne
and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a
Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes,
which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the

of him that sat upon the throne.
5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and
four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having
every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which
are the prayers of saints.
5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to
take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast
slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every
kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth.
5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the
number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and
thousands of thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that
was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and
strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the
earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all
that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and
glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the
throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four
and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that
liveth for ever and ever.

ND I saw when the Lamb opened one
of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one
of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat
on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went
forth conquering, and to conquer.
6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the
second beast say, Come and see.
6:4 And there went out another horse that was
red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take
peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another:
and there was given unto him a great sword.
6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the
third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black
horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his

barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and

voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And
power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to
kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the
beasts of the earth.
6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under
the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of
God, and for the testimony which they held:
6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long,
O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood
on them that dwell on the earth?
6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them;
and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a
little season, until their fellowservants also and their
brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be
6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal,
and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black
as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even
as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of
a mighty wind.
6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is
rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out
of their places.
6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and
the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and
every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens
and in the rocks of the mountains;
6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us,
and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne,
and from the wrath of the Lamb:
6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who
shall be able to stand?

ND after these things I saw four
angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the
four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the
earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east,
having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud
voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the
earth and the sea,
7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the
trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their

which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and
people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the
Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to
our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
7:11 And all the angels stood round about the throne,
and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell
before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto
our God for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me,
What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence
7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said
to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and
have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of

serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on
the throne shall dwell among them.
7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more;
neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne
shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of
waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much
incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all
saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the

fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there

the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships

star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon
the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of

the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died
of the waters, because they were made bitter.
8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of
the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the
third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was
darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the

saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was
given the key of the bottomless pit.

smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the
sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the
9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the
earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the
earth have power.
9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt
the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any
tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in
9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill
them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their
torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he

not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from
9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto
horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as
it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the
faces of men.
9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their
teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates
of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound
of chariots of many horses running to battle.
9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there
were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt
men five months.
9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the
angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue
is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name

woes more hereafter.

from the four horns of the golden altar which is before

Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river

prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for
to slay the third part of men.
9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen
were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the
number of them.
9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them
that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth,
and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the
heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke
9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by
the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued
out of their mouths.
9:19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their
tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had
heads, and with them they do hurt.
9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by
these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands,
that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and
silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can
see, nor hear, nor walk:

their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their

come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow
was upon his head, and his face was as it were
the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth,
and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things
which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,
when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be
finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give
me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and
eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be
in thy mouth sweet as honey.

hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and
as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather
them together to battle: the number of whom is as the
sand of the sea.
20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and
compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured
20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false
prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for
ever and ever.
20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat
on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and
there was found no place for them.
20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out
of those things which were written in the books, according to
20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and
death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and
they were judged every man according to their works.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of
fire. This is the second death.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.

ND I saw a new heaven and a new
earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed
away; and there was no more sea.
21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming
down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for
21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will
dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself
shall be with them, and be their God.
21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are
21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I
make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these
words are true and faithful.
21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and
Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is
athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I
will be his God, and he shall be my son.
21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and
idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second
21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels
which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and
talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the
bride, the Lamb's wife.
21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great
and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy
Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was
like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone,
clear as crystal;
21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had
twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written
thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the
children of Israel:
21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates;
on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations,
and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to
measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall
21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is
as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the
reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and
the height of it are equal.
21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred
and forty and four cubits, according to
the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of
jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear
21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city
were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The
first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the
third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the
seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the
tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an

every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city
was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God
Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of
the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it,
and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk
in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their
glory and honour into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by
day: for there shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the
nations into it.
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing
that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination,
or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the
Lamb's book of life.

ND he shewed me a pure river of
water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne
of God and of the Lamb.
22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either
side of the river, was there the tree of life, which
bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her
fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for
the healing of the nations.
22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of
God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall
22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall
be in their foreheads.
22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no
candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them
light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are
faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent
his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must
shortly be done.
22:7 Behold, I come
quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings
of the prophecy of this book.
22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them.
And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before
the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not:
for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets,
and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship
22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the
prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he
which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is
righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let
him be holy still.
22:12 And, behold, I come quickly;
and my reward is with me, to give every man according as
his work shall be.
22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the end, the first and the last.
22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in
through the gates into the city.
22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever
loveth and maketh a lie.
22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel
to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root
and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning
22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let
him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the
words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto
these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are
written in this book:
22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of
the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of
the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the
things which are written in this book.
22:20 He which testifieth these things saith,
Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even
so, come, Lord Jesus.
22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with
you all. Amen.
