The Revelation of St John the Divine

Chapter 22

The Saints will reign in celestial splendor—Christ will come, and men will be judged—Blessed are they who keep His commandments.

 And he shewed me a pure river of awater of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the atree of blife, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the cleaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

 And there shall be no more acurse: but the bthrone of God and of the cLamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

 And they shall asee his bface; and his cname shall be in their foreheads.

 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the asun; for the Lord God giveth them blight: and they shall creign dfor ever and ever.

 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and atrue: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must bshortly be done.

 Behold, I acome quickly: bblessed is he that keepeth the csayings of the prophecy of this book.

 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I afell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

 Then 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, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

 11 He that is aunjust, let him be bunjust still: and he which is cfilthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

 12 And, behold, I acome quickly; and my breward is with me, to give every man according as his cwork shall be.

 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the afirst and the last.

 14 Blessed are they that ado his bcommandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

 15 For without are dogs, and asorcerers, and bwhoremongers, and cmurderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a dlie.

 16 I Jesus have sent mine aangel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the broot and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning cstar.

 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, aCome. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the bwater of life freely.

 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall aadd unto these things, God shall add unto him the bplagues that are written in this book:

 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the abook of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

 20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I acome quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

 21 The agrace of our bLord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The End
