The New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea did not exist [any] longer. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God [is] with humanity, and he will take up residence with them, and they will be his people and God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will not exist [any] longer, anda mourning or wailing or pain will not exist [any] longer. The former [things]b have passed away." 5 And the one seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all [things] new!" And he said, "Write, because these words are faithful and true." 6 And he said to me, "It is done! I [am]c the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the one who is thirsty I will give [water] from the spring of the water of life freely.d 7 The one who conquers will inherit these [things], and I will be {his God}e and he will be {my son}f. 8 But [as] for the cowards and unbelievers and detestable persons and murderers and sexually immoral people and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their share [is] in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.

A Description of the New Jerusalem

9 And one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
