Revelation Chapter 21

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 21

1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things have passed away.

5 And he that sat on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write, for these words are true and faithful.

6-8 And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him who thirsts of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

9-13 And one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues came to me, and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. And her light was like a very precious stone, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. And she had a great and high wall having twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates and names are written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14-21 And the city's wall had twelve foundations and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. He who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, the gates thereof, and its wall. And the city is laid out as a square, and the length is as long as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall, a hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. And the building of the wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third a chalcedony, the fourth an emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every gate was made of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22-27 And I saw no temple therein: the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple. And the city had no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God did illuminate it, for the Lamb is the light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in the light of it, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day (for there shall be no night there). And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it, and there shall in no way enter into it anything that defiles or works an abomination or a lie—only they who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
