The New Heaven and Earth

1 Then I saw a R1034 new heaven and a new earth; for the R1035 first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the R1036 holy city, new R1037 Jerusalem, coming R1038 down out of heaven from God, made R1039 ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the R1040 tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell R1041 F239 among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, F240 4 and He will wipe R1042 away every tear from their eyes; and there R1043 will no longer be any death; there R1044 will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the R1045 first things have passed away."

5 And He R1046 who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making R1047 all things new." And He said, "Write, for these R1048 words are faithful and true." 6 Then He said to me, "It R1049 F241 is done. I am the Alpha R1050 and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I R1051 will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water R1052 of life without cost. 7 "He R1053 who overcomes will inherit these things, and I R1054 will be his God and he will be My son. 8 "But R1055 for the cowardly and unbelieving F242 and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the R1056 lake that burns with fire and brimstone, F243 which is the second R1057 death."

9 Then R1058 one of the seven angels who had the seven R1059 bowls full F244 of the seven R1060 last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, "Come R1058 here, I will show you the bride, R1061 the wife of the Lamb."

The New Jerusalem

10 And he R1062 carried me away in R1063 F245 the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the R1064 holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the R1065 glory of God. Her brilliance F246 was like a very costly stone, as a stone R1066 of crystal-clear R1067 jasper. 12 It F247 had a great and high wall, with R1068 F247 twelve gates, R1069 and at the gates twelve angels; and names were written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. 13 There were three gates on the east and three gates on the north and three gates on the south and three gates on the west. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve R1070 foundation stones, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve R1071 apostles of the Lamb.

15 The one who spoke with me had a gold F248 measuring rod R1072 to measure the city, and its gates R1073 and its wall. 16 The city is laid out as a square, and its length is as great as the width; and he measured the city with the rod, F249 fifteen F250 hundred miles; its length and width and height are equal. 17 And he measured its wall, seventy-two F251 yards, according to human R1074 measurements, F252 which are also angelic R1075 measurements. 18 The material of the wall was jasper; R1076 and the city was pure R1077 gold, like clear F253 glass. R1078 19 The R1079 foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation stone was jasper; R1080 the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; R1081 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; R1082 the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates R1083 were twelve pearls; R1084 each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure R1085 gold, like transparent glass. R1086

22 I saw no R1087 temple F254 in it, for the Lord R1088 God the Almighty and the Lamb R1089 are its temple. F254 23 And the city has R1090 no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the R1091 glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. R1092 24 The R1093 nations will walk by its light, and the kings R1094 of the earth will F255 bring their glory into it. 25 In the daytime (for there R1095 will be no night there) its R1096 gates will R1097 never be closed; 26 and they R1098 will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; 27 and nothing R1099 unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose F256 names are written R1100 in the Lamb's book of life.
