Alpha and the Omega, the First and the
Last,'' and, "What you see, write in a
book and send it to the seven
churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus,
to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to
Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.''

as dead. But He laid His right hand on
me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I
am the First and the Last.
"I am He
who lives, and was dead, and behold, I
am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have
the keys of Hades and of Death.

and the things which are, and the things
which will take place after this.
