9 aThen one of the seven angels who had the bseven bowls 1full of the cseven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, “aCome here, I will show you the dbride, the wife of the Lamb.”

The New Jerusalem

10 And ahe carried me away 1bin the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me cthe holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,

11 having athe glory of God. Her 1brilliance was like a very costly stone, as a bstone of ccrystal-clear jasper.

12 1It had a great and high wall, 1awith twelve bgates, 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 atwelve foundation stones, and on them were the twelve names of the btwelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 The one who spoke with me had a 1gold measuring arod to measure the city, and its bgates 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 1rod, 2fifteen hundred miles; its length and width and height are equal.

17 And he measured its wall, 1seventy-two yards, according to ahuman 2measurements, which are also bangelic measurements.

18 The material of the wall was ajasper; and the city was bpure gold, like 1clear cglass.

19 aThe foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation stone was bjasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, cemerald;

20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, asardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.

21 And the twelve agates were twelve bpearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was cpure gold, like transparent dglass.
