ራእይ 1:1-20

1ቶሎ መሆን የሚገባውን ነገር ለአገልጋዮቹ እንዲያሳይ፣ እግዚአብሔር ለእርሱ የሰጠው የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ራእይ ይህ ነው፤ ኢየሱስም መልአኩን ልኮ ለአገልጋዩ ለዮሐንስ ገለጠለት፤ 2እርሱም ስለ እግዚአብሔር ቃልና ስለ ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ምስክርነት ያየውን ሁሉ መሰከረ። 3ዘመኑ ቀርቦአል፤ እንግዲህ ይህን የትንቢት ቃል የሚያነብ ብፁዕ ነው፤ የሚሰሙትና የተጻፈውንም የሚጠብቁ ብፁዓን ናቸው።

ሰላምታና ውዳሴ

4ከዮሐንስ፤

በእስያ አውራጃ ለሚገኙ ለሰባቱ አብያተ ክርስቲያናት፤

ካለው፣ ከነበረውና ከሚመጣው፣ በዙፋኑም ፊት ካሉት ከሰባቱ መናፍስት፣1፥4 ወይም ሰባት ዕጥፍ መንፈስ 5እንዲሁም ታማኝ ምስክር፣ ከሙታን በኵርና የምድር ነገሥታት ገዥ ከሆነው ከኢየሱስ ክርስቶስም ጸጋና ሰላም ለእናንተ ይሁን።

ለወደደንና ከኀጢአታችንም በደሙ ነጻ ላወጣን፣ 6አምላኩንና አባቱን እንድናገለግልም መንግሥትና ካህናት ላደረገን፣ ለእርሱ ክብርና ኀይል ከዘላለም እስከ ዘላለም ይሁ አሜን።

7እነሆ፤ በደመና ይመጣል፤

የወጉት እንኳ ሳይቀሩ፣

ዐይን ሁሉ ያየዋል፤

የምድርም ሕዝቦች ሁሉ ከእርሱ የተነሣ ዋይ ዋይ ይላሉ።

አዎ! ይህ ሁሉ ይሆናል፤ አሜን።

8“ያለውና የነበረው፣ የሚመጣውም፣ ሁሉን ቻይ ጌታ አምላክ፣ አልፋና ዖሜጋ እኔ ነኝ” ይላል።

የሰውን ልጅ የሚመስለው

9እኔ ወንድማችሁ ዮሐንስ፣ ከእናንተ ጋር አብሬ በኢየሱስ መከራውንና መንግሥቱን፣ ትዕግሥቱንም ተካፋይ የሆንሁ፣ ስለ እግዚአብሔር ቃልና ስለ ኢየሱስ ምስክርነት ፍጥሞ በምትባል ደሴት ነበርሁ። 10በጌታ ቀን በመንፈስ ነበርሁ፤ የመለከትን ድምፅ የሚመስል ታላቅ ድምፅ ከበስተ ኋላዬ ሰማሁ፤ 11ድምፁም፣ “የምታየውን በጥቅልል መጽሐፍ ጽፈህ በኤፌሶን፣ በሰምርኔስ፣ በጴርጋሞን፣ በትያጥሮን፣ በሰርዴስ፣ በፊላድልፍያና በሎዶቅያ ወደሚገኙት ወደ ሰባቱ የእስያ አብያተ ክርስቲያናት ላክ” አለ።

12እኔም የሚናገረኝን ድምፅ ለማየት ዞር አልሁ፤ ዞር ባልሁም ጊዜ ሰባት የወርቅ መቅረዞችን አየሁ፤ 13በመቅረዞቹም መካከል “የሰው ልጅ የሚመስል” አየሁ፤ እርሱም እስከ እግሩ የሚደርስ መጐናጸፊያ የለበሰ፣ ደረቱንም በወርቅ መታጠቂያ የታጠቀ ነበር። 14ራሱና ጠጒሩም እንደ ነጭ የበግ ጠጒር፣ እንደ በረዶም ነጭ ነበሩ፤ ዐይኖቹም የእሳት ነበልባል ይመስሉ ነበር። 15እግሮቹ በእቶን እሳት የጋለ ናስ ይመስሉ ነበር፤ ድምፁም እንደ ብዙ ወራጅ ውሃ ድምፅ ነበረ። 16በቀኝ እጁ ሰባት ከዋክብት ይዞ ነበር፤ ከአፉም በሁለት በኩል የተሳለ ሰይፍ ይወጣ ነበር፤ ፊቱም በሙሉ ድምቀቱ እንደሚያበራ ፀሓይ ነበረ።

17ባየሁት ጊዜ እንደ ሞተ ሰው ሆኜ በእግሩ ሥር ወደቅሁ። እርሱም ቀኝ እጁን በላዬ ጭኖ እንዲህ አለኝ፤ “አትፍራ፤ የመጀመሪያውም የመጨረሻውም እኔ ነኝ፤ 18እኔ ሕያው ነኝ፤ ሞቼ ነበር፤ እነሆ አሁን ከዘላለም እስከ ዘላለም ድረስ ሕያው ነኝ፤ የሞትና የሲኦል መክፈቻም በእጄ ነው።

19“ስለዚህ ያየኸውን፣ አሁን ያለውንና በኋላም የሚሆነውን ጻፍ። 20በቀኝ እጄ ያየሃቸው የሰባቱ ከዋክብትና የሰባቱ የወርቅ መቅረዞች ምስጢር ይህ ነው፤ ሰባቱ ከዋክብት የሰባቱ አብያተ ክርስቲያናት መላእክት1፥20 ወይም መልእክተኞች ናቸው፤ ሰባቱ መቅረዞች ደግሞ ሰባቱ አብያተ ክርስቲያናት ናቸው።

King James Version

Revelation 1:1-20

1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he cometh 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, Amen. 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

9I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13And 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. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And 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. 17And 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: 18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
