And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.
And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
And in the midst of the seven candlesticks
one like unto the Son of man,
clothed with a garment down to the foot,
and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
His head and his hairs were white like wool,
as white as snow;
and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
And his feet like unto fine brass,
as if they burned in a furnace;
and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars:
and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword:
and his countenance was as the sun shineth
in his strength.
And when I saw him,
I fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand upon me,
saying unto me, Fear not;
I am the first and the last:
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold,
I am alive for evermore,
Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Ye are come unto mount Sion,
and unto the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem,
and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven,
and to God the Judge of all,
and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant,
and to the blood of sprinkling,
that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
For this cause I bow my knees
unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family
in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you,
according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit
in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled
with all the fulness of God.
