22 And he shewed me aa pure river of water of life, bclear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of cthe street of it, and don either side of the river, was there ethe tree of life, which bare ftwelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and dthe leaves of the tree were gfor the healing of the nations. 3 And hthere shall be no more curse: but ithe throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And kthey shall see his face; and lhis name shall be in their foreheads. 5 And mthere shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for nthe Lord God giveth them light: and othey shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, pThese sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the ppholy prophets qsent his angel qto shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7 rBehold, I come quickly: sblessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I tJohn saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, uI fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 uThen saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10 And he saith unto me, vSeal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: wfor the time is at hand. 11 xHe that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and yhe that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, rzbehold, I come quickly; and amy reward is with me, bto give every man according as his work shall be. 13 cI am Alpha and Omega, cthe beginning and the end, dthe first and the last. 14 eBlessed are they that do his commandments, ethat they may have right to fthe tree of life, and gmay enter in through the hgates into the city. 15 For iwithout are kdogs, and lsorcerers, and lwhoremongers, and lmurderers, and lidolaters, and lwhosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 mI Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. nI am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and omorning pstar. 17 And the Spirit and qthe bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And rlet him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take rsthe water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, tIf any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, uGod shall take away his part ||out of vthe book of life, and out of wthe holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth these things saith, xSurely I come quickly. Amen. yEven so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 zThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
