Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life. It was shining like crystal and was flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
down the middle of the street of the city. The tree of life was on each side of the river. It produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of all the nations.
Nothing that God judges guilty will be in that city. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and God's servants will worship him.
They will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.
There will never be night again. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light. And they will rule as kings forever and ever.
The angel said to me, "These words can be trusted and are true." The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon.
"Listen! I am coming soon! Happy is the one who obeys the words of prophecy in this book."
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw them, I bowed down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed these things to me.
