Then the angel showed me the river1 of the water of life,2 as clear as crystal,3 flowing4 from the throne of God and of the Lamb
down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life,5 bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.63
No longer will there be any curse.7 The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.84
They will see his face,9 and his name will be on their foreheads.105
There will be no more night.11 They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light.12 And they will reign for ever and ever.136
The angel said to me,14 "These words are trustworthy and true.15 The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets,16 sent his angel17 to show his servants the things that must soon take place."
7"Behold, I am coming soon!18 Blessed19 is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book."208
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things.21 And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet22 of the angel who had been showing them to me.
But he said to me, "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book.23 Worship God!"2410
Then he told me, "Do not seal up25 the words of the prophecy of this book,26 because the time is near.2711
Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy."2812"Behold, I am coming soon!29 My reward is with me,30 and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.3113I am the Alpha and the Omega,32 the First and the Last,33 the Beginning and the End.3414"Blessed are those who wash their robes,35 that they may have the right to the tree of life36 and may go through the gates37 into the city.3815Outside39 are the dogs,40 those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.16"I, Jesus,41 have sent my angel42 to give youa this testimony for the churches.43 I am the Root44 and the Offspring of David,45 and the bright Morning Star."4617
The Spirit47 and the bride48 say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.4918
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:50 If anyone adds anything to them,51 God will add to him the plagues described in this book.5219
And if anyone takes words away53 from this book of prophecy,54 God will take away from him his share in the tree of life55 and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
He who testifies to these things56 says, "Yes, I am coming soon."57 Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.5821
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people.59 Amen.
