Revelation Chapter 21

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heavens and a new earth; for the first heavens and the first earth had passed away; and there was no sea anymore.

Rev 21:2 Then I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, descending from God out of the heavens, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev 21:3 Then I heard a great voice out of the heavens saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them, and be their God.

Rev 21:4 So God will wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither will there be pain anymore; for the former things have passed away.

Rev 21:5 He that sat on the throne said, behold, I make all things new! He said to me, write; for these words are faithful and true.

Rev 21:6 And He said to me, it is done! I have become the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give to him who thirsts out of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Rev 21:7 He that is overcoming will inherit all things; and I will be His God, and he will be My son.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and sexually immoral, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.

Rev 21:9 So there came to me one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last calamities, and spoke with me, saying, here! I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

Rev 21:10 And he transported me in spirit to a massive and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending from God, out of the heavens,

Rev 21:11 having the glory of God; and her radiance is like a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Rev 21:12 and had a wall massive and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names inscribed, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel;

Rev 21:13 on the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

Rev 21:14 For the walls of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Rev 21:15 And he that spoke with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and her gates, and her walls.

Rev 21:16 The city lies four corners, and the length is as huge as the width; and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand stadia. The length and the width and the height of her are equal.

Rev 21:17 Then he measured the walls of her, a hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Rev 21:18 So the building of her walls was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

Rev 21:19 And the foundations of the walls 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;

Rev 21:20 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.

Rev 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, like transparent glass.

Rev 21:22 But I saw no temple in her; for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of her.

Rev 21:23 For 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 of it.

Rev 21:24 And the nations will walk in the light of her; and the kings of the earth will bring their glory and honor into her.

Rev 21:25 And the gates of it will not be shut at all by day; for there will be no night there.

Rev 21:26 For they will bring the glory and honor of the nations into her 27 and any that are unclean will not ever enter into it, neither whoever practices an abomination, or fabricating falsehood; but they who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
