1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, issuing forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the midst of its street. And on either side of the river, was a tree of life, producing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse. And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it; and His servants will serve Him; 4 and they will see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 And there will be night no more; and they need no lamp-light, nor light of the sun; because the Lord God will illuminate them, and they shall reign forever and ever.
6 And he said to me, "These words are faithful and true; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His servants the things which must shortly come to pass.
7 And, behold, I come quickly! Happy is he that keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
8 And I, John, am he who heard and saw these things. And, when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 And he says, "See that you do it not. I am a fellow-servant with you and with your brethren the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book: worship God." 10 And he says to me, "Seal not up the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unrighteous, let him do unrighteousness still; and he that is filthy, let him be made filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him do righteousness still; and he that is holy, let him be made holy still.
12 "Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to render to each one according as his work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14 Happy are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. 15 Without are the dogs and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one loving and acting a lie.
16 "I, Jesus, sent My angel to testify to you these things to the assemblies. I am the root and offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.
17 "And the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come'; and let him that hears say, 'Come'; and let him that thirsts say, 'Come'; he that will let him take the water of life freely.
18 "I testify to every one who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone shall add to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and, if anyone shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, even from the things written in this book."
