Letters to the Seven Assemblies
1:4 Yochanan to the seven Assemblies which are in Asia:
"Chen v'Chesed, and Shalom, from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Ruachim which are before His kes (throne); "
1:5 And from Yehoshua (יהושע) haMashiach, who is the faithful eidut (witness), and the bachor (first begotten) of the dead, and the prince of the melekhim of the earth. To Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
1:6 And has made us melekhim and Kohenim to Elohim (אלהים) and His Father; to Him be tiferet and dominion le olam va-ed.
1:7 Hinnei, HU ha Ba with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they [also] which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so,

Yochanan on the Island of Patmos
1:9 I Yochanan, your brother, and partner in tribulation, and the kingdom and patient endurance that are in Yehoshua (יהושע) haMashiach, was in the island called Patmos, on account of ha Dvar Elohim (אלהים), and for the Eidut Yehoshua (יהושע) haMashiach.
I was in the Ruach on Yom haAdon, and heard behind me
a great Voice, as of a shofar,
1:11 Saying, Anochi Alef ve Tav, Rishon (the first) ve Acharon (the Last): and, What you see, write in a sefer, and send it to the seven Assemblies which are in Asia; to Ephesos, and to Smuna, and to Pergamos, and to Thuateira, and to Sardeis (Σάρδεις), and to Philadelpheia, and to Laodikeia.
1:12 And I turned to see the Voice that spoke with me. And being turned, I saw shivat zahaven Menorot;
1:13 And in the midst of the shivat Menorot one like to the BEN haADAM, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a zahaven girdle.
1:14 His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire;
1:15 And His feet like to fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.
1:16 And he had in His yad yamin shivat hakokhavim (seven stars): and out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and His countenance [was] as ha shemesh (sun) shines in His strength.
1:17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His yad yamin upon me, saying to me:
