Revelation of John 21:9-23

The New Jerusalem

9Then came aone of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of bthe seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you cthe Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10And dhe carried me away in the Spirit to ea great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11 fhaving the glory of God, gits radiance hlike a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12It had a great, high wall, iwith twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed 13on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates. 14And the wall of the city had twelve jfoundations, and kon them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15And the one who spoke with me lhad a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls. 16The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its width. And he measured the city with his rod, 12,000 stadia.
About 1,380 miles; a stadion was about 607 feet or 185 meters
Its length and width and height are equal.
17He also measured its wall, 144 cubits
A  cubit was about 18 inches or 45 centimeters
by ohuman measurement, which is also pan angel’s measurement.
18The wall was built of qjasper, while the city was pure gold, like rclear glass. 19 sThe foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and tthe street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

22And uI saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. 23And the city vhas no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for wthe glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
