[1:10] I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
questioned him and said to him,
"Do you want us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What
diet shall we
Jesus said, "Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered."

Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
[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 girdle.

His head and

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;
A flame of fire
Burned in a furnace
And he said,
"The man is like a wise fisherman
who cast his net into the

[1:20] The mystery of the seven 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 seven churches.

[2:1] Unto 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 fainted.
[2:4] Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
[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 hate.
Unto the angel
Walketh in the midst
Thou hast left thy first love
said to his disciples, "Compare me to

whom I am like
Simon Peter said to him, "You are like a righteous angel."
Matthew said to him, "You are like a wise philosopher."
Thomas said to him, "Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like."
Jesus said, "I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out."
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, "What did Jesus say to you?"
Thomas said to them, "If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up."
Whom I am like
a righteous angel
A wise philosopher
Incapable of saying whom you are like
I am not your master
You will pick up stones and throw them at me
A fire will come out of the stones
Burn you up
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the
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.

Them which say they are Jews, and are not
Be thou faithful unto death... my faithful martyr, who was slain among you

That ye may be tried... the second death
Jesus said to
them, "If you fast,
you will give
rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and
if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into
any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat
they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes
into your mouth
will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth
- it is that which will defile you."
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
unto idols, and to commit fornication.
[2:15] So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
[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 it.
Jesus said, "When you see one
who was not
of woman, prostrate
yourselves on your
faces and worship
him. That one
is your father."
One ... not born of woman
And unto the angel of the church in
Thyatira write; These things
Son of God, who hath his
eyes like unto a flame of
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 first.
[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 unto idols.
The Son of God
Sacrificed unto idols
Jesus said, "Men think, perhaps, that it is peace
have come to cast upon the
world. They do not know that
it is dissension
which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire,
and war. For there will be
five in a house: three will be against two,
against three, the father
the son, and the son against
And they will stand solitary."
Peace (making two into one)
Fire, sword, and war
I have come
[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 the nations:
[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.
Till I come
Jesus said, "I shall give

seen and what no ear

hand has touched and
has never occurred to the
No hand has touched

And I will give
him the morning star.
[2:29] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
[3:1] And 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 dead.
[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 thee.
I know... know
said to Jesus, "Tell
us how our
end will be."
Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death."
Tell us how our end will be
Where the beginning is, there will the end be
Take his place
He will know the end
Will not experience death
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their
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 openeth;
[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,
They shall walk with me in white\
He... shall be clothed in white raiment

He said, "They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Let us have back our field.' They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."
Whom are your disciples like?

creation of God;
[3:15] I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
[3:16] So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
[3:17] Because thou sayest, I am 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.
[3:20] Behold, I stand at the door, 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 me.
[3:21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"
Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom."

[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 God.
[4:6] And before the throne there was a sea 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 ever,
[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,
I looked, and, behold... I will shew thee things... behold

[5:1] And 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 thereof?
[5:3] And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
[5:4] And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

[5:7] And he came and took the book out of the right hand 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.

[5:14] And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

[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 hand.
[6:6] And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
[6:7] And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

[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 foreheads.

And I heard the number of them which were
sealed: and there were
sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all
children of Israel.
[7:5] Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
[7:6] Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

[7:8] Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
[7:9] After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, 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.

[7:15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

[8:6] And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
[8:7] The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

[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 night likewise.

[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.

[9:13] And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
[9:14] Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
[9:15] And the four angels were loosed, which were 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 hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

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
fire and smoke and brimstone.
[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:
[9:21] Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

[10:2] And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
[10:3] And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
[10:4] And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

And the angel which I
saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth
lifted up his hand to heaven,

[10:10] And I took the little book out of the angel's 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.
[10:11] And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
[11:1] And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
[11:2] But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

[12:15] And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
[12:16] And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

[13:3] And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
[13:4] And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
[13:5] And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
[13:6] And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
[13:7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

He went to another and said to him, 'My master has invited you.' He said to him, 'I have just bought a house and am required for the day. I shall not have any spare time.'
He went to another and said to him, 'My master invites you.' He said to him, 'My friend is going to get married, and I am to prepare the banquet. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused from the dinner.'
He went to another and said to him, 'My master invites you.' He said to him, 'I have just bought a farm, and I am on my way to collect the rent. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused.'
The servant returned and said to his master, 'Those whom you invited to the dinner have asked to be excused.' The master said to his servant, 'Go outside to the streets and bring back those whom you happen to meet, so that they may dine.' Businessmen and merchants will not enter the places of my father."

killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the
patience and the faith of the saints.
[13:11] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
[13:12] And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
[13:13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
[13:14] And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
[13:15] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
[13:16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

[14:3] And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
[14:4] These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
[14:5] And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

[14:14] And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
[14:15] And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
[14:16] And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
[14:17] And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
[14:18] And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

[15:4] Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
[15:5] And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
[15:6] And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

[16:3] And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
[16:4] And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

[17:2] With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
[17:3] So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
[17:4] And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
[17:5] And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
[17:6] And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
[17:7] And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

[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.

And he carried me
away in the spirit to a great and high
and shewed me that
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 thereof.
[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 glass.
[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, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

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.

pure river of water of
life, clear as
proceeding out of the
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 serve him:
[22:4] And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
The tree... the tree
The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it...

It will not come by waiting for it
