1And I saw new heaven and new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth went away, and the sea is not now.
2And I, John, saw the holy city Jerusalem, new, coming down from heaven, made ready of God, as a wife adorned to her husband.
3And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying, Lo! the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall dwell with them; and they shall be his people, and he God with them shall be their God.
4And God shall wipe away each tear from the eyes of them; and death shall no more be, neither mourning, neither crying, neither sorrow, shall be over; which first things went away.
5And he said, that sat in the throne, Lo! I make all things new. And he said to me, Write thou, for these words be most faithful and true.
6And he said to me, It is done; I am alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. I shall give freely of the well of quick water to him that thirsteth.
7He that shall overcome, shall wield these things; and I shall be God to him, and he shall be son to me.
8But to fearedful men, and unbelieveful, and cursed, and man-quellers, and fornicators, and to witches, and to worshippers of idols, and to all liars, the part of them shall be in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, that is the second death.
9And one came of the seven angels, having vials full of the seven last vengeances [or the seven last plagues]. And he spake with me, and said, Come thou, and I shall show to thee the spousess, the wife of the lamb.
10And he took me up in Spirit into a great hill and high; and he showed to me the holy city of Jerusalem, coming down from heaven of God,
11having the clarity of God; and the light of it like [to] a precious stone, as the stone jasper, as crystal.
12And it had a wall great and high, having twelve gates, and in the gates of it twelve angels, and names written in, that be the names of [the] twelve lineages of the sons of Israel;
13from the east three gates, and from the north three gates, and from the south three gates, and from the west three gates.
14And the wall of the city had twelve foundaments, and in them, the twelve names of the twelve apostles, and of the lamb.
15And he that spake with me, had a golden measure of a reed, that he should mete the city, and the gates of it, and the wall.
16And the city was set in square; and the length of it is so much, as much as is the breadth. And he meted the city with the reed, by furlongs twelve thousands. And the height, and the length and the breadth of it, be even.
17And he meted the walls of it, of an hundred and forty and four cubits, by measure of man, that is, of the angel.
18And the building of the wall thereof was of the stone jasper. And the city itself was clean gold, like [to] clean glass.
19And the foundaments of the wall of the city were adorned with all precious stone. The first foundament, jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;
20the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.
21And the twelve gates be twelve margarites, by each; and each gate was of each margarite. And the streets of the city were clean gold, as of glass full shining.
22And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God almighty and the lamb, is the temple of it.
23And the city hath no need of the sun, neither moon, that they shine in it; for the clarity of God shall lighten [or shall light] it; and the lamb is the lantern of it.
24And folks shall walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory and honour into it.
25And the gates of it shall not be closed by day; and night shall not be there.
26And they shall bring the glory and honour of folks into it.
27Neither any man [or anything] defouled, and doing abomination and leasing, shall enter into it; but they that be written in the book of life of the lamb.
