RBT Translation:
Descending like a Bride
And the Favored bore witness, he who speaks that, I have beheld the Spirit descending as a dove from out of heaven, and she remained over himself.55
First the dark one, the Raven, then the light, the Dove. Genesis 1:24. The birds return from the time-circuit of the earth to the place from which they came forth.
"But the one above, Foundation of Peace, is free, she who is a mother of ourselves." (Galatians 4:26 RBT)
LITV Translation:
And witnessed, saying, I have seen the Spirit coming down as a dove out of Heaven, and He abode on Him.
ESV Translation:
And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him.

Footnotes

55

The dove is a feminine noun. A picture-riddle of the bride of heaven descending. In all likelihood the dove rested on his shoulder

“One is herself, my dove, my complete one, herself to her mother, clean is herself to she-who-bore-her…” Song 6:9 literal

Eve, from within himself, presented to himself: 
“…I saw descending from out of the heaven, from God, having been prepared like as a bride, having been ordered/adorned for the man of herself.” Revelation 21:2 RBT

remained upon himself as a crown upon his head: "A virtuous woman is a crown to her man..." (Proverbs 12:4 RBT)
