Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1The Revelation of Yeshua The Messiah, which God gave to him, to show his Servants what had been given to soon occur, and he symbolized* it when he sent by his Angel to his Servant Yohannan, 2Who witnessed the word of God and the testimony of Yeshua The Messiah - everything whatever he saw. 3Blessed is the one who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things that are written in it, for the time is near.
4Yohannan to the seven assemblies that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from The One Who is, and was, and is coming, and from The Seven Spirits which are before his throne,* 5And from Yeshua The Messiah, the Trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead and The Ruler of the Kings of The Earth- him who loves us and has loosed* us from our sins by his blood. 6And he has made us The Priestly Kingdom to God and his Father; to him be glory and Empire to the eternity of eternities. Amen. 7Behold, he comes with clouds and every eye shall see him, even those who pierced him, and all the families of The Earth shall mourn for him; yes and amen!
8I am The Alap and The Tau*, says THE LORD JEHOVAH God, he who is and has been and is coming, The Almighty.
9I Yohannan am your brother and companion in suffering and in the patience which is in Yeshua*. I was in the island that is called Patmos, because of the word of God and because of the testimony of Yeshua The Messiah. 10And I was in The Spirit on the first day of the week*, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11Which said, "Those things which you have seen, write in a book and send to the seven assemblies:* to Ephesaus, to Zmurna, to Pergamaus, to Thawatyra, to Sardis, to Philadelphia and to Laidiqia.
12And I turned to know* that voice which spoke with me, and when I turned around, I saw seven menorahs of gold; 13And in the midst of the menorahs as the likeness of a man, and he wore an ephod* and he was girded around his chest with a golden wrap. 14And his head and his hair were white as wool and like snow, and his eyes were like flames of fire. 15And his feet were in the form of the brass of Lebanon* which is heated in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters. 16And he had in his right hand seven stars, and a sharp lance* proceeded from his mouth, and I saw* him like the Sun appearing in its strength.
17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet like a dead man, and he laid his right hand upon me saying, Do not be afraid, for I am The First and The Last; 18I am he who lived and died, and behold, I am alive to the eternity of eternities, amen, and I have the key of Death and of Sheol. 19Write, therefore, whatever you have seen and those things that are, and that are going to come to pass after these things. 20The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand and the seven menorahs: the seven stars are the Messengers of the seven assemblies, and the seven menorahs of gold which you saw* are the seven assemblies.
