Rev.1:10b  I heard ... a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Rev.1:11a  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:
Rev.1:12a  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.
Rev.1:17  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:
Rev.1:18a  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore.
Alleluia. Hosanna in the highest! Amen.
