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.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G2281 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G435 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G2316 4He 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."G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G565 5He 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."G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G4103 6He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G1432 7He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G5207 8But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G2288 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."G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G1135 10And 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.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G2316 11It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G2929 12It 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.G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G2474 13There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G4440 14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G721 15The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G846 16The 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.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G2470 17He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits thick, by man's measurement, which the angel was using.G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G32 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G5194 19The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G4665 20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G271 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G5194 22I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G846 23The 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.G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G846 24The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G846 25On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G1563 26The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G846 27Nothing 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
