7 And behold, 1I acome quickly. bBlessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this scroll.

9 And he said to me, aDo not do that! I am your fellow slave and a fellow slave of your brothers the bprophets and of those who ckeep the words of this scroll. dWorship God.

10 And he said to me, Do 1not aseal the words of the bprophecy of this scroll, for the ctime is near.

11 1Let ahim who does unrighteousness do unrighteousness still; and let him who is filthy be filthy still; and let him who is righteous do righteousness still; and let him who is holy be holy still.

12 Behold, 1I acome quickly, and My 2breward is with Me to render to each one as his work is.

13 1I am the aAlpha and the Omega, the 2bFirst and the Last, the cBeginning and the End.

17 And the 1aSpirit and the bbride say, 2cCome! And let him who hears say, cCome! And let him who is dthirsty 3ecome; let 4him who wills take the fwater of life freely.
