21Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G22812I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G4353And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G23164'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G5655He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G41036He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G14327Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G52078But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G2288
The New Jerusalem, the Bride of the Lamb
9One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G113510And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G231611It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G292912It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G247413There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G444014The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G72115The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G84616The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G247017He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits thick, by human measurement, which the angel was using.G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G3218The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G519419The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G466520the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G27121The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G519422I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G84623The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G84624The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G84625On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G156326The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G84627Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.G2532G1525G3364G1525G1519G846G3956G2840G2532G4160G946G2532G5579G1508G1125G1722G721G975G2222
