Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing
twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used
for medicine to heal the nations.
No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God
and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. And they
will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. And there
will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will
shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
Then the angel said to me, “Everything you have heard and seen is trustworthy and true. The Lord God, who inspires his prophets, has sent his
angel to tell his servants what will happen soon.”
“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed are those who obey the words
of prophecy written in this book.”
I, John, am the one who heard and saw all these things. And when I heard
and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed
them to me. But he said, “No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God,
just like you and your brothers the prophets, as well as all who obey what
is written in this book. Worship only God!”
Then he instructed me, “Do not seal up the prophetic words in this
book, for the time is near. Let the one who is doing harm continue to
do harm; let the one who is vile continue to be vile; let the one who is
righteous continue to live righteously; let the one who is holy continue
to be holy.”
“Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all
people according to their deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter
through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. Outside
the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers,
the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches.
I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the
bright morning star.”
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say,
“Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink
