John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from Him g who is and h who was and who is to come, i and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne,
5 and from Jesus Christ, j the faithful k witness, the l firstborn from the dead, and m the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him n who 1 loved us o and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has p made us 2 kings and priests to His God and Father, q to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, He is coming with r clouds, and every eye will see Him, even s they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
