Revelation of John 21


The New Jerusalem

And I saw [2heaven 1a new], and [2earth 1a new]; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away; and the sea is no more. And the [2city 1holy], new Jerusalem, I saw coming down from God out of the heaven, being prepared as a bride being adorned for her husband. And I heard [2voice 1a great] from out of the heaven, saying, Behold, the tent of God is with the men, and he shall pitch a tent with them, and they [2his people 1will be], and God himself will be with them. And he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will not be any more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor misery -- it shall not be any more, for the first things departed. And said the one sitting upon the throne, Behold, [3new 1I make 2all things]. And he says to me, Write! for these words [2true 3and 4trustworthy 1are]. And he said to me, It has taken place -- the alpha and the omega, the beginning and end. I [2to the one 3thirsting 1will give] from out of the spring of the water of life without charge. The one overcoming shall inherit all, and I will be to him God, and he will be to me a son. But to the timid ones, and unbelieving ones, and sinful ones, and ones being abhorrent, and murderers, and fornicators, and dealers in potions, and idolaters, and to all the liars, their part is in the lake burning with fire and sulphur, which is the [2death 1second].

The Bride of the Lamb

And [2came 1one] from the seven angels, of the ones having the seven bowls being full of the seven [2calamities 1last], and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show to you the wife, the bride of the lamb. 10 And he carried me away in spirit upon [4mountain 1a great 2and 3high]. And he showed to me the [2city 1great], holy Jerusalem, coming down from out of the heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her luminescence was likened [2stone 1to precious], as [2stone 1to jasper] sparkling; 12 having a wall great and high; having [2gatehouses 1twelve]. And upon the gatehouses [2angels 1were twelve], and names being inscribed, which is of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. 13 From the east [2gatehouses 1three]; and from the north [2gatehouses 1three]; and from the south [2gatehouses 1three]; and from the west [2gatehouses 1three]. 14 And the wall of the city had [2foundations 1twelve], and upon them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the lamb. 15 And the one speaking with me had [3measure 2reed 1a golden], that he should measure the city, and its gatehouses, and its wall. 16 And the city [2four-cornered 1lies], and its length is as much as the width. And he measured the city by the reed unto [3stadiums 1twelve 2thousand]. The length, and the width, and the height of her were equal. 17 And he measured her wall a hundred forty four cubits, the measure of a man, which is, of an angel. 18 And [4was 1the 2edifice 3of her wall] jasper; and the city [2gold 1pure], likened [2glass 1to pure]. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city [2with every 4stone 3precious 1were adorned]. The [2foundation 1first] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh hyacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 And the twelve gatehouses were twelve pearls, whilst [2one 1each] of the gatehouses was of one pearl. And the square of the city [2gold 1is of pure] as [2glass 1transparent]. 22 And [2temple 1I saw no] in her, for the Lord God almighty [2temple 1is her], and the lamb. 23 And the city [2no 3need 1has] of the sun, nor of the moon, that they should shine forth in her; for the glory of God gives her light, and her lamp is the lamb. 24 And [3shall walk 1the 2nations] by her light; and the kings of the earth shall bring the glory and their honor unto her. 25 And her gatehouses in no way should be locked by day; [3night 1for 2there will be no] there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations unto her. 27 And in no way should enter into her anything common, and committing an abomination, and a lie; only the ones being written in the scroll of the life of the lamb.
