Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth,1 for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away,2 and there was no longer any sea.
I saw the Holy City,3 the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,4 prepared as a bride5 beautifully dressed for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them.6 They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.74
He will wipe every tear from their eyes.8 There will be no more death9 or mourning or crying or pain,10 for the old order of things has passed away."115
He who was seated on the throne12 said, "I am making everything new!"13 Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."146
He said to me: "It is done.15 I am the Alpha and the Omega,16 the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost17 from the spring of the water of life.18
