Revelation 22

Revelation 22

1The river and tree of life: 3the glorious state of the servants of God. 8John is forbidden by the angel to worship him; 10and commanded to seal up the prophecy. 12Christ's coming and eternity. 14The blessedness of them that do God's commandments. 18Nothing must be added to or taken from this prophecy. 21The concluding benediction.

1 And he shewed me 1a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the 2throne of God and of the Lamb.

2 In the midst of 1the street of it, and on either side of the river, 2was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: 3and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 1And there shall be no more curse: 2but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and 3his servants shall serve him:

4 1And they shall see his face; and 2his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 1And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: 2and they shall reign for ever and ever.

6 And he said unto me, 1These sayings are faithful and true: and the 2Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel 3to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

7 1Behold, I come quickly: 2blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

8 And I 1John 2saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, 3I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

10 And he saith unto me, 1Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: 2for the time is at hand.

11 1He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: 2and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 1And, behold, I come quickly; and 2my reward is with me, 3to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 1I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 1Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to 2the tree of life, and may enter in through 3the gates into the city.

15 1For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 1I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am 2the root and the offspring of David, and 3the bright and morning star.

17 And the 1Spirit and 2the bride say, Come. And let 3him that heareth say, Come. 4And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For 1I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, 2If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the 3plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, 1God shall take away his part aout of the book of life, and out of 2the holy city, and from 3the things which are written in this book.

20 1He which testifieth these things saith, 2Surely I come quickly. 3Amen. 4Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 1The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
