King James VersionRevelation21


1 And I saw a new heav­en and a new earth: for the first heav­en and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, com­ing down from God out of heav­en, pre­pared as a bride adorned for her hus­band. 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 shall be with them, and be their God. 4 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 are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Be­hold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faith­ful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Al­pha and Omega, the be­gin­ning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the foun­tain of the wa­ter of life freely. 7 He that over­cometh shall in­her­it all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fear­ful, and un­be­liev­ing, and the abom­inable, and mur­der­ers, and whore­mon­gers, 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. 9 And there came unto me one of the sev­en an­gels which had the sev­en vials full of the sev­en last plagues, and talked with me, say­ing, Come hith­er, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10 And he car­ried me away in the spir­it to a great and high moun­tain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, de­scend­ing out of heav­en from God, 11 Hav­ing the glo­ry of God: and her light was like unto a stone most pre­cious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crys­tal; 12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve an­gels, and names writ­ten there­on, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the chil­dren of Is­rael: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foun­da­tions, and in them the names of the twelve apos­tles of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me had a gold­en reed to mea­sure the city, and the gates there­of, and the wall there­of. 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 height of it are equal. 17 And he mea­sured the wall there­of, an hun­dred and forty and four cu­bits, ac­cord­ing to the mea­sure of a man, that is, of the an­gel. 18 And the build­ing of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 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; 20 The fifth, sar­donyx; the sixth, sardius; the sev­enth, chryso­lite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chryso­pra­sus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 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. 22 And I saw no tem­ple there­in: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the tem­ple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, nei­ther of the moon, to shine in it: for the glo­ry of God did light­en it, and the Lamb is the light there­of. 24 And the na­tions of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glo­ry and hon­our into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glo­ry and hon­our of the na­tions into it. 27 And there shall in no wise en­ter into it any thing that de­fileth, nei­ther whatsoever wor­keth abom­i­na­tion, or maketh a lie: but they which are writ­ten in the Lamb's book of life.
