[Revelation 22]

     22:1 And he showed me a river of the clean water of life, bright like crystal, traveling out from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 22:2 in the middle of her street. And the Tree of Life was from here and from there {i.e. on this side and on that side} of the river, producing twelve fruits, giving her fruit each month and the kinds of foliage of the tree were*for the healing of the nations. 22:3 And every curse will be not be there anymore and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it. And his bondservants will be giving-divine service to him; 22:4 and they will see his face, and his name will be upon their foreheads. 22:5 And there will be no night there, and they do not have need of a lamp or light of the sun, because the Lord God will be illuminating them and they will be reigning forevermore.

     22:6 And he says to me, These are the faithful and true words and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his messenger to show to his bondservants what things are essential to happen shortly.

     22:7And behold, I am coming shortly. The fortunate one is keeping the words of the prophecy of this book.

     22:8 And I, John, am the one who is hearing and seeing these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell to worship before the feet of the messenger who shows these things to me. 22:9 And he says to me, See that you do not do that. I am your fellow bondservant and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who are keeping the words of this book. Worship God.

     22:10 And he says to me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for* the time is near. 22:11 He who is doing* wrong, let him still do wrong and the filthy, let him still be filthy and the righteous, let him still practice righteousness and the holy-one, let him still be holy.

     22:12Behold, I am coming shortly, and my reward is with me, to repay to each one as his work will be.22:13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

     22:14 The fortunate ones are practicing his commandments, in order that their authority will be in the Tree of Life and they may enter in by the gates into the city.

     22:15 The dogs and the sorcerers and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone loving and practicing a lie are outside.

     22:16I, Jesus, sent my messenger to testify to you* these things in the congregations*. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.

     22:17 And the Spirit and the bride are saying, Come. And he who hears, let him say, Come. And he who is thirsty, let him come. He who wills, let him take the water of life freely.

     22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone should add onto them, God might add onto him the wounds which have been written in this book. 22:19And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God takes away his part from the Tree of Life and out of the holy city, which have been written in this book.

     22:20 He who is testifying of these things says, Yes, I am coming shortly. Amen.

     Yes come, Lord Jesus.

     22:21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with all the holy-ones. Amen.
