He measured its wall and it was 144 cubitsa thick,b by man's1 measurement, which the angel was using.
The wall was made of jasper,2 and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.319
The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone.4 The first foundation was jasper,5 the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian,6 the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.c21
The twelve gates7 were twelve pearls,8 each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.922
I did not see a temple10 in the city, because the Lord God Almighty11 and the Lamb12 are its temple.
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God13 gives it light,14 and the Lamb15 is its lamp.
The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.1625
On no day will its gates17 ever be shut,18 for there will be no night there.1926
The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it.2027
Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful,21 but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.22
