Revelation 22

ALT(i) 1 And he showed to me a pure river of water of life, bright [or, clear] as crystal, coming out [fig., flowing] from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 in the middle of its open street. And the river from here and from there [fig., On each side of the river] [was] a tree of life, producing twelve fruits, according to each month [fig., monthly] yielding its fruits. And the leaves of the tree [are] for [the] healing of the nations. 3 And [there] will not be any curse there, and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His slaves will sacredly serve Him. 4 And they will see His face, and His name [will be] on their foreheads. 5 And night will not be [fig., exist] there, and they have no need of a lamp and of [the] light of [the] sun, because the Lord God illuminates them. And they will reign into the ages of the ages [fig., forever and ever]. 6 And he says to me, "These words [are] trustworthy and true, and [the] Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent His angel to show to His slaves what [things are] necessary to occur with quickness. 7 "{And} listen! I am coming quickly! Happy [is] the one keeping the words of the prophecy of this scroll." 8 And I, John, [am] the one hearing and seeing these [things]. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to prostrate myself in worship before the feet of the angel, the one showing these [things] to me. 9 And he says to me, "See [that you do] not! I am a fellow-slave of you and of your brothers the prophets and of the ones keeping the words of this scroll. Prostrate yourself in worship before God!" 10 And he says to me, "Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this scroll, {for} the time is near. 11 "The one acting unjustly let him act unjustly still, and the filthy [person] let him be made filthy still, and the righteous [person] let him practice righteousness still, and the holy [person] let him be holy still." 12 "Listen! I am coming quickly, and My reward [is] with me, to render [or, repay] to each as his work will be [fig., according to his deeds]. 13 "I [am] the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and End." 14 Happy [are] the ones doing His commandments, so that their right will be to the tree of life, and they shall enter by the gates into the city. 15 Outside [are] the dogs and the sorcerers and the sexual sinners and the murderers and the idolaters and every one affectionately loving and practicing falsehood. 16 "I, Jesus, sent My angel to testify to youp [or, tell youp about] these [things] concerning the assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright, Morning Star!" 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, "Be coming!" And the one hearing, let him say, "Be coming!" And the one thirsting, let him come. The one desiring, let him take [the] water of life without cost. 18 I testify to every one hearing the words of the prophecy of this scroll, if anyone adds to them, God [is prepared] to add to him the {seven} plagues, the ones having been written in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, may God take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, the [things] having been written in this scroll. 20 The One testifying to these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly!" So be it! Yes, be coming, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ [be] with all the holy ones. So be it!
