Revelation of John 21

And I saw new heavens, and a new earth: for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away: and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem, descending from God out of heaven, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice from heaven, which said: Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men; and he dwelleth with them: they will be his people; and God will be with them, a God to them. And every tear will be wiped from their eyes; and there will no more be death, nor mourning, nor wailing; nor shall pain be any more; because the former things are passed away. And He who sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And he said: Write; because these are the faithful and true words of God. And he said to me: I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Completion: to him who thirsteth, will I give of the fountain of living water, gratis. He that overcometh, shall inherit these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But to the timid, and the unbelieving, and to the sinful, and polluted, and to manslayers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and to all false persons, their portion shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and sulphur, which is the second death. And there came one of those seven angels, who have the seven cups filled with the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying: Come, I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb. 10 And he bore me away in the spirit, to a mountain great and high, and he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God; 11 in which was the glory of God, as a brilliant light, and resembling a very precious gem; like a jasper stone, resembling crystal. 12 And it had a wall great and lofty, which had twelve gates, and names inscribed on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. 13 On the east, three gates; on the north, three gates; on the south, three gates; and on the west, three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and upon them the twelve names of the twelve legates of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me, had a measure, a golden reed; so that he could measure the city, and its gates, and its wall. 16 And the city stood up four square; and its length was the same as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, to twelve furlongs of twelve thousand; and the length and the breadth and the height of it were all equal. 17 And he measured its wall, a hundred and forty and four measures of the cubits of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the structure of its wall was of jasper; and the city was of pure gold, like pure glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every precious stone. The first foundation, a jasper; the second, a sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 the fifth, a sardonyx; the sixth, a sardius; the seventh, a chrysolite; the eighth, a beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each pearl one gate, and each gate one pearl: and the broad street of the city was pure gold, like brilliant glass. 22 And I saw no temple in it; for the Lord Almighty is its temple, and the Lamb. 23 And the city hath no need of the sun or of the moon, to enlighten it; for the glory of God enlighteneth it, and the Lamb is the lamps of it. 24 And the nations that were saved, shall walk by means of its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory and the wealth of the nations into it. 25 And its gates shall not be shut by day; for there is no night there. 26 And they will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. 27 And there shall not enter it, any thing polluted, or that practiseth impurity and falsehood; but they who are registered in the Lamb's book of life.
