Revelation chapter 1

Updated: Jul 24, 2022

Literal translation of the Greek:

Revelation 1

1 Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah which was given by Himself being God, and shown to His servants who needed to be quickly notified through His messenger, His servant Yochanan,

2 who bears witness of the Word of God and the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah, whatsoever he sees

3 Blessed is the one who has greater knowledge(of the Word of God implied) and listens to the words of this prophecy and watches for what is written regarding the time at hand(end times implied)

4 Yochanan, the seven Ekklesias(called out groups) that are in Asia(Asia minor), grace and peace to you from Who was and is and is to come and from the seven spirits that are before His throne

5 and from Yeshua the Messiah, the witness of the faith, the firstborn of the dead and the first, the King of the earth, He Who loves us and Who cleansed us from our sins in His blood

6 and He made us kings and priests of God and our Father, His is the glory(honour) and the might(power) into the ages the ages(meaning forever and ever), amen.

7 See, He comes with the clouds and all eyes will see and those that pierced Him and cut Him off, all the tribes(nations, gentiles) of the earth, yes, amen!

8 I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, says the Lord, He Who was and is and is to come, The Almighty!

9 I Yochanan, your brother and partaker(or companion) in the tribulation(persecution) and in the Kingdom, am patiently awaiting for Yeshua the Messiah to come, in the isle called Patmos through the Word of God and through the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah

10 came to me in the Spirit in the Lord's day and I heard behind me a great voice as a trumpet

11 saying, I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last and what you see write down in a scroll(Biblion in Greek) and send it to the seven Ekklesias(Called out groups) in Asia(Asia Minor), to Ephesos and to Smurna and to Pergamos and to Thuateira and to Sardeis and to Philadelpheia and to Laodikeia.

12 and I turned back and saw the voice which spoke with me and I turned back and saw seven golden lampstands(or candlesticks)

13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of man clothed(or arrayed) in a robe down to His feet and girded about toward the chest with a golden belt

14 also His head and the white hair as if wool, white as snow and His eyes as a lightning flash

15 and His feet as brass kindled in a furnace and His voice as many waters

16 and He holds in His right hand seven stars and from His mouth a double edged sword swiftly going out and His appearance as the sun shining in His power

17 and when I saw Him I fell before His feet as though dead and He put His right hand on me saying to me, fear not, I AM the First and the Last

18 and living then was dead and see, I AM alive unto the ages the ages(meaning forever and ever), amen and I hold the keys to hades(hell) and death.

19 Write what you see and what is and what is about to be with these.

20 The hidden thing(secret, mystery) of the seven stars you saw on My right and the seven lampstands of gold, the seven stars are messengers of the seven Ekklesias and the seven lampstands you saw are the seven Ekklesias.
