And the angel showed me a pure river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb,
coursing down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, a with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
No longer will anything be cursed. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him.
And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.
And there will be no night there -- no need for lamps or sun -- for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
Then the angel said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true: 'The Lord God, who tells his prophets what the future holds, has sent his angel to tell you what will happen soon.'"
