21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.
2 And the holy city new Jerusalem saw I coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice out of the throne, saying—Lo! the tent of God is with men And he will tabernacle with them, And they shall be his peoples And he shall be God with them;
4 And he will wipe away every tear out of their eyes,—And death shall be no more, And grief and outcry and pain shall be no more: The first things have passed away.
5 And he that was sitting upon the throne said—Lo! I make all things new. And he saith—Write! because these words are faithful and true.
6 And he said unto me—Accomplished! I am the A and the Z, the Beginning and the End: I unto him that is thirsting will give of the fountain of the water of life freely:
7 He that overcometh shall inherit these things,—And I will be to him a God, And he shall be to me a son;
8 But as for the timid and disbelieving, and abominable and murderers, and fornicators and sorcerers and idolaters, and all the false their part is in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone,—which is the second death.
9 And there came one of the seven messengers which had the seven bowls that were full of the seven last plagues and spake with me, saying—Hither! I will point out to thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
10 And he carried me away in spirit unto a mountain great and high, and pointed out to me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God;
11 having the glory of God,—her lustre like unto a stone most precious, as a jasper stone shining as crystal;
12 having a wall great and high, having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers and names inscribed which are [the names] of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel,—
13 on the east three gates, and on the north three gates, and on the south three gates, and on the west three gates;
14 and the wall of the city having twelve foundations, and upon them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that was talking with me had for a measure a reed of gold, that he might measure the city and the gates thereof and the wall thereof.
16 And the city four-square lieth, and the length thereof is as great as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed,—twelve thousand furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof,—a hundred and forty-four cubits: the measure of a man, which is [the measure] of a messenger.
18 And the structure of the wall thereof was jasper, and the city was pure gold like unto pure glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city with every precious stone were adorned: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh hyacinth, the twelfth amethyst;
21 and the twelve gates were twelve pearls,—each one of the gates severally was of one pearl; and the broadway of the city was pure gold as transparent glass.
22 And sanctuary saw I none therein; for the Lord God the Almighty is the sanctuary thereof, and the Lamb.
23 And the city hath no need of the sun nor of the moon, that they should shine therein; for the glory of God illumined it, and the lamp thereof was the Lamb.
24 And the nations shall walk through her light; and the kings of the earth do bring their glory into it,
25 and the gates thereof shall in nowise be shut by day,—night in fact shall not be there,—
26 and they shall bring the glory and the honour of the nations into it.
27 And in nowise shall there enter into it anything common, or he that doeth abomination and falsehood,—but only they who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
