One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues1 came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the bride,2 the wife of the Lamb."
And he carried me away3 in the Spirit4 to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.511
It shone with the glory of God,6 and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper,7 clear as crystal.812
It had a great, high wall with twelve gates,9 and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.10
