The New Heaven and Earth

21THEN I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G2281 2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified {and} adorned for her husband;G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G435 3Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne {and} I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G2316 4God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions {and} the former order of things have passed away.G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G565 5And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G4103 6And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G1432 7He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G5207 8But as for the cowards {and} the ignoble {and} the contemptible {and} the cravenly lacking in courage {and} the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd {and} adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)--[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G2288

The New Jerusalem

9Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven final plagues (afflictions, calamities) came and spoke to me. He said, Come with me! I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G1135 10Then in the Spirit He conveyed me away to a vast and lofty mountain and exhibited to me the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God,G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G2316 11Clothed in God's glory [in all its splendor and radiance]. The luster of it resembled a rare {and} most precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G2929 12It had a massive and high wall with twelve [large] gates, and at the gates [there were stationed] twelve angels, and [on the gates] the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were written:G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G2474 13On the east side three gates, on the north side three gates, on the south side three gates, and on the west side three gates.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G4440 14And the wall of the city had twelve foundation [stones], and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G721 15And he who spoke to me had a golden measuring reed (rod) to measure the city and its gates and its wall.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G846 16The city lies in a square, its length being the same as its width. And he measured the city with his reed--12,000 stadia (about 1,500 miles); its length and width and height are the same.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G2470 17He measured its wall also--144 cubits (about 72 yards) by a man's measure [of a cubit from his elbow to his third fingertip], which is [the measure] of the angel.G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G32 18The wall was built of jasper, while the city [itself was of] pure gold, clear and transparent like glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G5194 19The foundation [stones] of the wall of the city were ornamented with all of the precious stones. The first foundation [stone] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony (or white agate), the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G4665 20The fifth onyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G271 21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each separate gate being built of one solid pearl. And the main street (the broadway) of the city was of gold as pure {and} translucent as glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G5194 22I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Omnipotent [Himself] and the Lamb [Himself] are its temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G846 23And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor {and} radiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp.G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G846 24The nations shall walk by its light and the rulers {and} leaders of the earth shall bring into it their glory.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G846 25And its gates shall never be closed by day, and there shall be no night there.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G1563 26They shall bring the glory (the splendor and majesty) and the honor of the nations into it.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G846 27But nothing that defiles {or} profanes {or} is unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life.G2532G1525G3364G1525G1519G846G3956G2840G2532G4160G946G2532G5579G1508G1125G1722G721G975G2222
