I saw the Holy City,1 the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,2 prepared as a bride3 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.4 They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.54
He will wipe every tear from their eyes.6 There will be no more death7 or mourning or crying or pain,8 for the old order of things has passed away."95
He who was seated on the throne10 said, "I am making everything new!"11 Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."126
He said to me: "It is done.13 I am the Alpha and the Omega,14 the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost15 from the spring of the water of life.167
He who overcomes17 will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.188
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars19--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur.20 This is the second death."219
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues22 came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the bride,23 the wife of the Lamb."
And he carried me away24 in the Spirit25 to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.2611
It shone with the glory of God,27 and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper,28 clear as crystal.2912
It had a great, high wall with twelve gates,30 and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.31
