22 1 Then he showed me a river of the water of life , clear as crystal , coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb , 2 in the middle of its street . On either side of the river was the tree of life , bearing twelve kinds of fruit , yielding its fruit every e month ; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations . 3 There will no longer be any curse ; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; 4 they will see His face , and His name will be on their foreheads . 5 And there will no longer be any night ; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun , because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever .
Jesus to Come Soon
6 And he said to me, " These words are faithful and true "; and the Lord , the God of the spirits of the prophets , sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place . 7 "And behold , I am coming quickly . Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book ." 8 I, John , am the one who heard and saw these things . And when I heard and saw , I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things . 9 But he said to me, "Do not do that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book . Worship God ." 10 And he said to me, " Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book , for the time is near . 11 " Let the one who does wrong , still do wrong ; and the one who is filthy , still be filthy ; and let the one who is righteous , still practice righteousness ; and the one who is holy , still keep himself holy ." 12 "Behold , I am coming quickly , and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done e . 13 "I am the Alpha and the Omega , the first and the last , the beginning and the end ." 14 Blessed are those who wash their robes , so that they may have the right to the tree of life , and may enter by the gates into the city . 15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters , and everyone who loves and practices lying . 16 " I, Jesus , have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches . I am the root and the descendant of David , the bright morning star ." 17 The Spirit and the bride say , "Come ." And let the one who hears say , "Come ." And let the one who is thirsty come ; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost . 18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book : if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book ; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy , God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city , which are written in this book .
