1:10 On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,
1:11 which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."
1:12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands,
1:13 and among the lampstands was someone "like a son of man," dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest.
1:14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire.
1:15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters.
1:16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
1:17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.
1:18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
1:19 "Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.
1:20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
