Revelation 21:12; Revelation 21:14; Revelation 21:16; Revelation 21:21 (New International Version)
It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.
The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.
