Living_Oracles(i) 1 And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, issuing out of the throne of God, and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the broad street, and on each side of the river, was the tree of life, producing twelve kinds of fruit- producing its fruit in every month: and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 And every curse shall cease. And the throne of God, and of the Lamb, shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him. 4 And they shall see his face: and his name shall be borne upon their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no more night; and they have no need of a lamp, nor of the light of the sun; because the Lord God shall enlighten them: and they shall reign for ever and ever. 6 And he said to me, These words are faithful and true. And the Lord God of the holy prophets, has sent his holy angel to show his servants what must quickly be done. 7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book. 8 And I, John, saw and heard these things, and when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 And he said to me, See you do it not: I am a fellow-servant with you, and of your brethren, the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book: worship God. 10 And he said to me, Seal not up the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near. 11 Let him that is unjust, be unjust still; and let him that is polluted, be polluted still; and let him that is righteous, be righteous still; and let him that is holy, be holy still. 12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me: I will recompense to every man according as his works shall be. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega-the Beginning and the End: the First and the Last. 14 (Happy are they who keep his commandments, that they may have the privilege to eat of the tree of life; and they shall enter by the gates into the city. 15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one who loves and invents a lie.) 16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you, in the congregations. I am the Root and the Offspring of David; the bright and the Morning Star. 17 And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come: and let him that hears, say, Come: and let him that is thirsty, come: whoever will, let him take of the water of life freely. 18 And I testify of every one that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues which are written in this book: 19 and if any one take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city-the things which are written in this book. 20 He who testifies these things, says, Surely, I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 May the favor of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints!
