the first foundation jasper,
the second sapphire,
the third chalcedony,
the fourth emerald,
the sixth carnelian,
the seventh chrysolite,
the eighth beryl,
the ninth topaz,
the tenth chrysoprase,
the eleventh jacinth,
the twelfth amethyst.

22 I did not see a sanctuary in it, because the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its sanctuary. 23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because God’s glory illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb. e 24 The nations f will walk in its light, g and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. h i 25 Each day its gates will never close because it will never be night there. j 26 They will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. k l 27 Nothing profane will ever enter it: m no one who does what is vile or false, but only those written in the Lamb’s book of life. n
