Williams(i) 1 Then he showed me a river of living water, clear as crystal, which continued to flow from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the city's Broadway. On both sides of the river grew the tree of life, which bore twelve kinds of fruit, yielding a different kind each month, and its leaves contained the remedy to cure the nations. 3 No longer will there be anything that has a curse on it. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and His slaves will worship Him, 4 They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no night any longer; so they will need no lamplight nor sunlight, for the Lord God will give them light, and they will rule forever and ever. 6 Then he said to me: "These words are trustworthy and true; the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show His slaves what must soon take place. 7 See! I am coming soon! Blessed is he who practices the truths of prophecy contained in this book." 8 It is I, John, who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw them, I fell at the feet of the angel who was showing them to me, to worship him. 9 But he said to me: "You must be careful not to do that; I am only a fellow-slave of yours, of your brothers the prophets, and of the people who practice the truths contained in this book. Worship God." 10 Then he said to me: "Do not seal up the words of prophecy contained in this book, for the time of their coming true is near. 11 Let the person who is doing evil do evil still; let the filthy person be filthy still; let the upright person still do right; let the consecrated person still be consecrated. 12 "See! I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me, to repay each one just as his work has been. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so as to have a right to the tree of life and to enter the gates of the city. 15 The dogs, that is, those who practice magic and immorality, murderers, idolaters, and those who love and practice lying, are on the outside. 16 "I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear this testimony to you for the churches. I belong to the line and family of David; I am the bright morning star." 17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let everyone who hears this say, "Come." Let everyone who is thirsty come. Let everyone who wishes come and take the living water without any cost. 18 I warn everyone who hears the words of prophecy contained in this book that if anyone adds anything to it, God will add to him the plagues that are described in this book; 19 and if anyone subtracts from it some of the words of this prophetic book, God will subtract from him his share in the tree of life and the holy city which are described in this book. 20 He who testifies to this says, "Yes, I am coming soon!" Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! 21 The spiritual blessing of the Lord Jesus be with His people.
