21Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G2281 2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G435 3I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, God's home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G2316 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G565 5And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!" And then he said to me, "Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true."G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G4103 6And he also said, "It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G1432 7All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G5207 8"But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G2288 9Then one of the seven angels who held the seven bowls containing the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come with me! I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G1135 10So he took me in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G2316 11It shone with the glory of God and sparkled like a precious stone—like jasper as clear as crystal.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G2929 12The city wall was broad and high, with twelve gates guarded by twelve angels. And the names of the twelve tribes of Israel were written on the gates.G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G2474 13There were three gates on each side—east, north, south, and west.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G4440 14The wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G721 15The angel who talked to me held in his hand a gold measuring stick to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G846 16When he measured it, he found it was a square, as wide as it was long. In fact, its length and width and height were each 1,400 miles.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G2470 17Then he measured the walls and found them to be 216 feet thick (according to the human standard used by the angel).G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G32 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city was pure gold, as clear as glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G5194 19The wall of the city was built on foundation stones inlaid with twelve precious stones. the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G4665 20the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G271 21The twelve gates were made of pearls—each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure gold, as clear as glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G5194 22I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G846 23And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G846 24The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G846 25Its gates will never be closed at the end of day because there is no night there.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G1563 26And all the nations will bring their glory and honor into the city.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G846 27Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty—but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.G2532G1525G3364G1525G1519G846G3956G2840G2532G4160G946G2532G5579G1508G1125G1722G721G975G2222
