The Revelation of John, chapter 21


The new world of God: 21.1-22.5


God's dwelling among men

Rev 21: 1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more either.Rev 21: 2I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven; she was ready like a bride adorned for her husband.Rev 21: 3Then I heard a loud voice calling out from the throne: Look, God's dwelling among men! He will dwell in their midst, and they will be his people; and he, God, will be with them.Rev 21: 4He will wipe all the tears from her eyes: there will be no more death, no grief, no lament, no hardship. Because what was before is gone.Rev 21,5He who sat on the throne said: See, I am making everything new. And he said: Write it down, for these words are reliable and true.Rev 21: 6He said to me: You have come true. I am the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. Those who are thirsty I will let them drink for free from the spring from which the water of life flows.Rev 21: 7Whoever wins will receive this as a share: I will be his God and he will be my son.Rev 21: 8But the cowards and faithless, the defiled, the murderers and fornicators, the sorcerers, idolaters and all liars - their lot will be the lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death..

The new Jerusalem

Rev 21: 9And one of the seven angels came who had carried the seven bowls with the seven last plagues. He said to me: Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.Rev 21:10Then he raptured me up a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city of Jerusalem as it came down from God out of heaven.Rev 21:11filled with the glory of God. It shone like a precious gem, like crystal clear jasper.Rev 21:12The city has a great and high wall with twelve gates and twelve angels on them. Names are written on the gates: the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.Rev 21:13The city has three gates in the east, three gates in the north, three gates in the south and three gates in the west.Rev 21:14The city wall has twelve foundation stones; on them are the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.Rev 21:15And the angel who spoke to me had a gold measuring stick with which the city, its gates and its wall were measured.Rev 21:16The city was laid out as a square and was as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the measuring stick; their length, breadth and height are the same: twelve thousand stadia.Rev 21:17And he measured its wall; it is one hundred and forty-four cubits by the human measure that the angel used.Rev 21:18Its wall is made of jasper and the city is made of pure gold, like pure glass.Rev 21:19The foundation stones of the city wall are adorned with precious stones of all kinds; the first cornerstone is a jasper, the second a sapphire, the third a chalcedony, the fourth an emerald,Rev 21:20the fifth a sardonyx, the sixth a sardion, the seventh a chrysolite, the eighth a beryl, the ninth a topaz, the tenth a chrysoprase, the eleventh a hyacinth, the twelfth an amethyst.Rev 21:21The twelve gates are twelve pearls; each of the gates consists of a single pearl. The street of the city is made of pure gold, like clear glass.Rev 21:22I did not see a temple in the city. For the Lord their God, the ruler over all creation, is their temple, he and the Lamb.Rev 21:23The city needs neither the sun nor the moon to shine for you. For the glory of God illuminates them and their lamp is the Lamb.Rev 21:24The peoples will walk in this light and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor to the city.Rev 21.25Its gates will not be closed all day - there will be no more night there.Rev 21:26And the splendor and treasures of the peoples will be brought into the city.Rev 21:27But nothing unclean will come in, no one who perpetrates atrocities and lies. Only those who are entered in the Lamb's Book of Life will be admitted.
