Chapter 21Revelation of John

21

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth are gone; and the sea is no more. 2 And I saw the holy :city Jerusalem new coming down out of :heaven from :God, made ready as a bride adorned for her :husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Lo, the tabernacle of :God is with :men, and he shall tabernacle with them, and THEY shall be his peoples, and :God himself shall be with them: 4 and he shall wipe away every tear from their :eyes; and: death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, anymore: the first things are gone. 5 And who sitteth on the throne said, Lo, I make all things new. And he saith, Write: because these :words are faithful and true. 6 And he said to me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the †Ōmega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one athirst of the fountain of the water of :life freely. 7 Who overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be God to him, and he shall be son to me. 8 But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all :liars, their :part is in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
 
9 And one of the seven angels came who had the seven bowls, who were laden with the seven :last plagues; and spake with me, saying, Hither, I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb. 10 And he carried me away in Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the holy :city Jerusalem, coming down out of the heaven from :God, 11 having the glory of :God: her luminary was like unto a stone most precious, as a jasper stone, clear as crystal: 12 having a wall great and high; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written thereon, which are those of the twelve tribes, of Israel’s sons. 13 On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city †had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And who spake with me had for a measure a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth four-square, and the length thereof is as great as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty-four cubits by man’s measure, that is, an angel’s. 18 And the building of the wall thereof was jasper; and the city was pure gold like unto pure glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every precious stone. The first :foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, gold stone; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, gold leek; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the several gates was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass. 22 And I saw no sanctuary therein: for the Lord :God the Almighty is the sanctuary thereof, and the Lamb. 23 And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine upon it: for the glory of :God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the lamp thereof. 24 And the nations shall walk by the :light thereof: and the kings of the earth bring their :glory into it. 25 And the gates thereof shall in nowise be shut by day (for no night shall be there): 26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it: 27 and in nowise shall enter into it anything unclean, or who maketh an abomination and a lie: but only those written in the Lamb’s :book of :life.
