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!"24
