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."
