Revelation of John 22


The River of Life

1And he showed to me [2river 1a pure] of water of life, bright as crystal, going forth from out of the throne of God and of the lamb. 2In the midst of her square, and of the river, from this side here and from that side there, a tree of life producing [2fruits 1twelve], [2by 3month 1each] rendering its fruit; and the leaves of the tree were for treatment of the nations. 3And every great curse shall not be any longer; and the throne of God and of the lamb [2in 3her 1will be]; and his bondmen shall serve to him. 4And they shall see his face; and his name is upon their foreheads. 5And [2night 1there will be no] there; and [2no need 1they have] of a lamp, and the light of the sun, for the Lord God enlightens them; and they shall reign into the eons of the eons. 6And he said to me, These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondmen what must take place quickly. 7Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is the one giving heed to the words of the prophecy of this scroll. 8And I John am the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell to do obeisance before the feet of the angel showing to me these things. 9And he says to me, See that you do not! [3your fellow-servant 1for 2I am], and of your brethren the prophets, and of the ones giving heed to the words of this scroll; to God do obeisance! 10And he says to me, You should not set a seal upon the words of the prophecy of this scroll, for the time is near. 11The one wronging, let him wrong still! And the filthy one, let him be filthy still! And the righteous, [2righteousness 1let him do] still! And the holy one, let him be sanctified still! 12Behold, I come quickly, and my wage is with me, to render to each as [2work 3will be 1his].

Alpha and Omega

13I am the alpha and the omega, the beginning and end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are the ones observing his commandments, that [2will be 1their authority] unto the tree of life, and by the gatehouses they should enter into the city. 15Outside are the dogs, and the administers of potions, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one being fond of and committing a lie. 16I Jesus sent forth my angel to testify to you these things unto the assemblies. I am the root and the race of David, the [3star 1bright 2early morning]. 17And the spirit and the bride say, Come! And the one hearing let say, Come! And the one thirsting, let come! The one wanting, let take water of life without charge! 18I bear witness to every one hearing the words of the prophecy of this scroll; if anyone should add upon these, [2will place 3upon 4him 1God] the calamities being written in this scroll. 19And if anyone should remove from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, may God remove his part from the tree of life, and from the [2city 1holy] of the things having been written in this scroll. 20[4says 1The one 2testifying 3these things], Yes, I come quickly. Amen. Yes, come O Lord Jesus! 21The favor of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all the holy ones. Amen.
