2 in the middle of the street of it. And on each side of the river, the tree of life, bringing forth twelve fruits, yielding his fruit by each month; and the leaves of the tree be to healing of folks. [In the middle of the street of it, and on each side of the flood, the tree of life, bringing forth twelve fruits, yielding his fruit by each month; and the leaves of the tree be to health of folks.] 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
3 And each cursed thing shall no more be; but the seats of God and of the lamb shall be in it. And the servants of him shall serve him. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.

5 And night shall no more be, and they shall not have need to the light of a lantern, neither to light of the sun; for the Lord God shall lighten them [And night shall no more be, and they shall not have need to light of lantern, neither to light of the sun; for the Lord God shall light them], and they shall reign into worlds of worlds. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
