1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them, as their God. 4 And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. And death shall be no more; neither mourning, nor crying, nor pain, shall be any more; because the first things passed away."
5 And He Who sits upon the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He saith to me, "Write; because these words are faithful and true." 6 And He said to me, "It has come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give to him that thirsted of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcomes shall inherit these things; and I will be to him a God, and He will be to Me a son. 8 But, for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the liars, their part shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death."
9 And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls that were full of the seven last plagues, and spake with me, saying, "Come hither; I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb." 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the city, the holy Jerusalem, coming down out of the Heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God; her radiance was like a stone most precious, as a jasper stone clear as crystal; 12 having a wall great and high; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names inscribed, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel; 13 on the east were three gates, and on the north three gates, and on the south three gates, and on the west three gates; 14 and the wall of the city, having twelve foundations; and on them, twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he who was talking with me had as a measure a golden reed, that he might measure the city, and its gate, and its wall. 16 And the city lies four-square, and its length is as great as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs; and the length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured its wall a hundred and forty-four cubits, a man's measure, that is, an angel's. 18 And the material of its wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like pure glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every manner of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, hyacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates, severally, was of one pearl; and the street of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple in it; for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are the temple thereof. 23 And the city has no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine upon it; for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 And the nations will walk by its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory into it. 25 And its gates shall in nowise be shut by day (for there will be no night there); 26 and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in nowise enter into it any thing unclean, or he that works abomination and a lie; but only those written in the Lamb's book of life.
