Revelation of John 22

The River and the Tree of Life

1Then a  he showed me a b  river of the c  water of life
Lit bright
clear e  as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of
Or the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was
the Lamb,
2in the middle of g  its street. h  On either side of the river was i  the tree of life, bearing twelve
Or crops of fruit
kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 k  There will no longer be any curse; and l  the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will m  serve Him; 4they will n  see His face, and His o  name will be on their p  foreheads. 5And q  there will no longer be any night; and they
Lit do not have
will not have need s  of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will t  reign forever and ever.

6And u  he said to me, v  These words are faithful and true”; and the Lord, the w  God of the spirits of the prophets, x  sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place.

7And behold, y  I am coming quickly. z  Blessed is he who
Lit keeps
heeds ab  the words of the prophecy of this book.”

8 ac  I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw ad  I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9But ae  he said to me, “Do not do that. I am a af  fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who
Lit keep
heed the words of ah  this book. Worship God.”

The Final Message

10 And he said to me, ai  Do not seal up aj  the words of the prophecy of this book, ak  for the time is near. 11 al  Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”

12Behold, am  I am coming quickly, and My an  reward is with Me, ao  to render to every man
Lit as his work is
according to what he has done.
13“I am the aq  Alpha and the Omega, ar  the first and the last, as  the beginning and the end.”

14Blessed are those who at  wash their robes, so that they may have the right to au  the tree of life, and may av  enter by the aw  gates into the city. 15 ax  Outside are the ay  dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

16 az  I, Jesus, have sent ba  My angel to testify to you these things
Or concerning
bc  for the churches. I am bd  the root and the be  descendant of David, the bright bf  morning star.”

17The bg  Spirit and the bh  bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And bi  let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the bj  water of life without cost.

18I testify to everyone who hears bk  the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone bl  adds to them, God will add to him bm  the plagues which are written in bn  this book; 19and if anyone bo  takes away from the bp  words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from bq  the tree of life and
Lit out of
from the holy city bs  which are written in this book.

20He who bt  testifies to these things says, Yes, bu  I am coming quickly.” Amen. bv  Come, Lord Jesus.

21 bw  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with
One early ms reads the saints
all. Amen.
