21:1 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
21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her
21:3 And I heard a great 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 will be
with them, [and be] their God.
21:4 And God will 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
21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all
things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are true
21:6 And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the end. I will give to him that is thirsty of
the fountain of the water of life freely.
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be
his God, and he shall be my son.
21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and lewd men, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with
fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
21:9 And there came to me one of the seven angels, who had the
seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me,
saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's
21:10 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,
21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light [was] like to a
stone most precious, even like a jasper-stone, clear as
21:12 And had a wall great and high, [and] had twelve gates, and
at the gates twelve angels, and names written on them, which
are [the names] of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the
south three gates; and on the west three gates.
21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on
them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15 And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure
the city, and its gates, and its wall.
21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large
as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve
thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the hight of
it are equal.
21:17 And he measured the wall of it a hundred [and] forty four
cubits, [according to] the measure of a man, that is, of the
21:18 And the building of the wall of it was [of] jasper: and
the city [was] pure gold, like clear glass.
21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city [were]
garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first
foundation [was] jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a
chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh,
chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a
chrysoprase; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21:21 And the twelve gates [were] twelve pearls; every several
gate was of one pearl; and the street of the city [was] pure
gold, as it were transparent glass.
21:22 And I saw no temple in it: for the Lord God Almighty and
the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon,
to shine in it: for the glory of God enlightened it, and the
Lamb [is] the light of it.
21:24 And the nations of them who are saved shall walk in the
light of it: and the kings of the earth bring their glory and
honor into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut by day: for there
shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that
defileth, neither [whatever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a
lie; but they who are written in the Lamb's book of life.
