1Then1he showed me a 2river of the 3water of life, aclear4as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of bthe Lamb,
in the middle of 5its street. 6On eitherside of the river was 7the tree of life, bearingtwelveckinds of fruit, yielding its fruiteverymonth ; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
38There will nolonger be anycurse ; and 9the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will 10serve Him;
they will 11see His face, and His 12name will be on their 13foreheads.
And 14there will nolonger be any night ; and they dwill not haveneed15of the light of a lampnor the light of the sun, because the LordGod will illumine them; and they will 16reignforever and ever.
And 17he said to me, "18Thesewords are faithful and true "; and the Lord, the 19God of the spirits of the prophets, 20sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things whichmustsoontakeplace.
7"And behold, 21I am comingquickly. 22Blessed is he who eheeds23the words of the prophecy of thisbook."824I, John, am the one who heard and sawthesethings. And when I heard and saw, 25I felldown to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me thesethings.
But 26he said to me, "Do not do that. I am a 27fellowservant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who fheed the words of 28thisbook. WorshipGod."
And he said to me, "29Do not seal up 30the words of the prophecy of thisbook, 31for the time is near.
"32Let the one who doeswrong, stilldowrong ; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy ; and let the one who is righteous, stillpracticerighteousness ; and the one who is holy, stillkeep himself holy."
12"Behold, 33I am comingquickly, and My 34reward is with Me, 35to render to everymangaccording to what he hasdone .13"I am the 36Alpha and the Omega, 37the first and the last, 38the beginning and the end."14Blessed are those who 39wash their robes, so that they may have the right to 40the tree of life, and may 41enter by the 42gates into the city.
1543Outside are the 44dogs and the sorcerers and the immoralpersons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practiceslying.
16"45I, Jesus, have sent46My angel to testify to you thesethingsh47for the churches. I am48the root and the 49descendant of David, the bright50morningstar."17
The 51Spirit and the 52bridesay, "Come." And let the one who hearssay, "Come." And 53let the one who is thirstycome ; let the one who wishestake the 54water of lifewithoutcost.
I testify to everyone who hears55the words of the prophecy of thisbook : ifanyone56adds to them, God will add to him 57the plagues which are written in 58thisbook ;
and ifanyone59takesaway from the 60words of the book of thisprophecy, God will takeaway his part from 61the tree of life and ifrom the holycity, 62which are written in thisbook.
He who 63testifies to thesethingssays, "Yes, 64I am comingquickly."Amen. 65Come, LordJesus.
2166The grace of the LordJesus be with jall. Amen.
