God of the holy prophets sent His angel to shew unto His servants
the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly;
blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of thia

angel to testify unto you these things. / am the root and the
^'s^ring of David, and the bright and morning star."
