11 vhaving the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with wtwelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 xthree gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and yon them were the 1names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he who talked with me zhad a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. 16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand 2furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. 17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. 18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 aThe foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve bpearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. cAnd the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
22 dBut I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 eThe city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine 3in it, for the 4glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 fAnd the nations 5of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor 6into it. 25 gIts gates shall not be shut at all by day h(there shall be no night there). 26 iAnd they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into 7it. 27 But jthere shall by no means enter it anything 8that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s kBook of Life.
22 And he showed me aa 1pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 bIn the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was cthe tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were dfor the healing of the nations. 3 And ethere shall be no more curse, fbut the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His gservants shall serve Him. 4 hThey shall see His face, and iHis name shall be on their foreheads. 5 jThere shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor klight of the sun, for lthe Lord God gives them light. mAnd they shall reign forever and ever.
