70- New Jerusalem Described

Revelation 21

9] One of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me.

The angel: Come here and I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10] And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, (11) having the glory of God: and her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12] The city had great and high wall. The city had twelve gates, and the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel were written on them. (13) On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14] And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb were in them.

15] The angel that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates of it, and the wall of it.

16] And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, fifteen hundred miles. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17] And he measured the wall of it, 144 cubits (216 feet), according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18] And the building of the wall of the city was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

19] And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.

The first foundation was jasper;

The second, sapphire;

The third, a chalcedony;

The fourth, an emerald;

20] The fifth, sardonyx;

The sixth, sardius;

The seventh, chrysolite;

The eighth, beryl;

The ninth, a topaz;

The tenth, a chrysoprasus;

The eleventh, a jacinth;

The twelfth, an amethyst.

21] And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22] And I saw no temple in the city: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light of it.

24] And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.

25] And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

26] And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

27] And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they (who enter are those) who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
