Thomson(i) 1 Then he shewed me a pure river of the water of life, clear as chrystal, issuing from the throne of God and the lamb; 2 and in the middle of the broad street of the city on both sides of the river at proper distances there was a tree of life bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month and the leaves of the tree are to heal the nations. 3 And nothing subject to a curse shall ever be there; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall serve him 4 and see his face; and his name shall be on their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no night there; nor have they any need of a lamp or of the light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light; and they shall reign for the ages of the ages. 6 Then he said to me, These words are faithful and true. And the Lord the God of the holy prophets hath sent his angel to shew his servants what must shortly come to pass. 7 Behold I am coming quickly. Happy he who keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book. 8 Now, I John saw and heard these things. And when I had heard and seen I prostrated myself to worship at the feet of the angel who pointed them out to me; 9 and he saith to me, See thou do not: I am a fellow servant of thee and of thy brethren the prophets and of them who keep the words of this book: Worship God. 10 Then he saith to me, seal not up the words of the prophecy of this book for the time is near. 11 Let him who is unjust be unjust still and him who is polluted be polluted still; and let the just be still just and the holy still holy. 12 Now behold I am coming quickly and my reward is with me to render to every one as his work shall be. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega: the beginning and the end; the first and the last. 14 Happy they who perform his commandments that they may have access to the tree of life and enter by the gates into the city: 15 but without are the dogs and the sorcerers and the prostitutes and the murderers and the idolaters and every one who loveth and practiseth falsehood. 16 I Jesus have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David; the bright and the morning star. 17 Now the spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him who heareth say Come. And let every one who thirsteth come; and let every one who is willing take of the water of life at free cost. 18 For I testify to every one who heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any one addeth to these things God will lay on him the plagues written of in this book; 19 and if any one taketh away from the words of the book of this prophecy God will take away his portion of the tree of life and of the holy city which are written of in this book. 20 He who testifieth these things saith, I am indeed coming quickly. Amen, even so come, Lord Jesus. 21 The favour of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all! Amen.
