22 And he pointed out to me a river of water of life bright as crystal, issuing forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,
2 in the midst of the broadway thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was a tree of life bearing twelve crops of fruit, every several month yielding its fruit; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And no curse shall there be any more; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be therein,—and his servants will render divine service unto him,
4 and they shall see his face, and his name [shall be] upon their foreheads.
5 And night shall be no more; and they have no need of the light of a lamp or the light of a sun, because the Lord God will give them light,—and they shall reign unto the ages of ages.
6 And he said unto me—These words are faithful and true; and the Lord the God of the spirits of the prophets hath sent his messenger to point out unto his servants the things which must needs come to pass with speed.
7 And—Lo! I come speedily! Happy is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this scroll.
8 And I John am he that was hearing and seeing these things; and when I had heard and seen I fell down to do homage at the feet of the messenger who had been pointing out unto me these things,—
9 and he saith unto me—See [thou do it] not! A fellow-servant am I, of thee and of thy brethren the prophets and of them who keep the words of this scroll: unto God do homage.
10 And he saith unto me—Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, for the season is near:
11 He that is doing unjustly let him do unjustly still, And he that is filthy let him be made filthy still; And he that is righteous let him do righteousness still, And he that is holy let him be hallowed still:—
12 Lo! I come speedily, And my reward is with me to render unto each one as his work is.
13 I am the A and the Z, The First and the Last, The Beginning and the End.
14 Happy they who are washing their robes, that their right may be unto the tree of life and by the gates they may enter into the city.
15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the unchaste and the murderers and the idolaters and every one loving and doing falsehood.
16 I Jesus have sent my messenger to bear witness unto you of these things, for the assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, The bright and the morning Star.
17 And the Spirit and the Bride say—Come! And he that heareth let him say—Come! And he that is athirst let him come,—He that will let him take of the water of life freely.
18 I bear witness unto every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this scroll:—If anyone shall lay aught upon them God will lay upon him the plagues which are written in this scroll;
19 And if anyone shall take away from the words of this prophetic scroll God will take away his part—From the tree of life And out of the holy city,—[From] the things written in this scroll.
20 He that beareth witness of these things saith—Yea! I come speedily. Amen! come, Lord Jesus!
21 The favour of the Lord Jesus [Christ] be with the saints.
