1The Hitgalut of Yeshua HaMashi’akh, which Elohim gave to Him to show to His servants those things which must soon come to pass; He sent and signified it by His Malakh to His servant Yokhanan, 2who bore record of D’var HaElohim and of the testimony of Yeshua HaMashi’akh, and of all things that he saw. 3Blessed is he who reads, and they who listen to the words of this Nevu’ah, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is at hand.
4Yokhanan, to the seven congregations which are in Asia: compassion to you and shalom from Him who is, and who was, and who will be; and from the seven Rukhot which are before His throne; 5and from Yeshua HaMashi’akh, who is the faithful witness, and the first to arise from the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and freed us from our sins with His own blood, 6and has made us to be a Malkhut and Kohanim to Elohim His Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amein. 7Behold, He will come with the clouds; and every eye shall see Him, even the men who pierced Him; and all the kindreds of the earth shall wail over Him. Even so, Amein. 8I am Alef and also Tav, the beginning and the ending, says יהוה Elohim, who is, and who was, and who will be, Okhez Hakol.
9I, Yokhanan, your brother and companion in suffering and in the hope of Yeshua HaMashi’akh, was in the island which is called Patmos because of the D’var HaElohim and because of the testimony of Yeshua HaMashi’akh. 10I was in HaRu’akh on Yom יהוה , and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a shofar, saying, 11“What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven congregations, to Efesos, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spoke to me. And as I turned, I saw seven golden Menorahs, 13and in the midst of the seven Menorahs, one resembling Ben HaAdam, wearing a long vestment and girded round His breast with a golden girdle. 14His head and His hair were white as wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; 15and His feet were like the fine white brass, as though they were burned in a furnace; and His voice was as the sound of many waters. 16And He had in His right hand seven stars; and out of His mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword; and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying, “Fear not; I am the first and the last; 18I am He who lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. Amein. And I have the keys of Mavet and of She’ol. 19Write, therefore, the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter. 20The Sod of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden Menorahs: the seven stars are the Malakhim of the seven congregations, and the seven Menorahs are the seven congregations.
