Berean Literal Bible
The River of Life
1And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the middle of its street and of the river, on this side and on that side, was a tree of life, producing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit according to each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
3And there will not be any curse any longer. And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will serve Him. 4And they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5And there will be no night there, and they have no need of the light of a lamp and of the light of the sun, because the Lord God will enlighten upon them, and they will reign to the ages of the ages.
Jesus is Coming
6And 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 His servants the things that must come to pass in quickness.”
7“And behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one keeping the words of the prophecy of this book.”
8And I, John, am the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel showing these things me. 9And he says to me, “See that you not do this. I am your fellow servant, and with your brothers the prophets, and with those keeping the words of this book. Worship God!”
10And he says to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near. 11The one being unrighteous, let him be unrighteous still; and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he who is righteous, let him practice righteousness still; and he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
12“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each as is his work. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
14Blessed are those washing their robes,a that their right will be to the tree of life, and they shall enter into the city by the gates. 15Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone loving and practicing falsehood.
16“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to all of you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.”
17And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And the one hearing, let him say, “Come!” And the one thirsting let him come; the one desiring, let him take freely the water of life.
Nothing May Be Added
18I testify to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone should add to these things, God will add unto him the plagues having been written in this book. 19And if anyone should take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, of those having been written in this book.
20The One testifying these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
