faithful and true; and the Lord God of the holy

prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servant 7 the things which must shortly be done. Behold,

I come quickly : blessed is he that keepeth the 8 sayings of the prophecy of this book. And I

John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to

worship before the feet of the angel which shewed 9 me these things. Then saith he unto me, See

thou do it not:* for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which

keep the sayings of this book; worship God. 10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of

the prophecy of this book : for the time is at 11 hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still :

Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let

him that is athirst, come : and whosoever will, let 18 him take the water of life freely. For I testify

unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto

these things, God whall add unto him the plagues 19 that are written in this book : and if any man

come quickly; Amen. Even so, come, Lori Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
