ABU(i) 1 AND he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of its street, and on either side of the river, was a tree of life, bearing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 And there will be no more curse. And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it; and his servants will serve him, 4 and will see his face, and his name will be upon their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there; and they will have no need of a lamp, nor of the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light; and they will reign forever and ever. 6 And he said to me: These sayings are faithful and true; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show to his servants what things must shortly come to pass. 7 Behold, I come quickly. Happy is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8 And I, John, am he who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel, who showed me these things. 9 And he says to me: See thou do it not. I am a fellow-servant of thee and of thy brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the sayings of this book; worship God. 10 And he says to me: Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he that is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to each one according as his work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 14 Happy are they who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may 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 that loves and makes a lie. 16 I, Jesus, sent my angel, to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright, the morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say: Come. And let him that hears say: Come. And let him that thirsts, come; let him that will, take the water of life freely. 18 I testify to every one that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if any one shall add to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if any one shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written of in this book. 20 He who testifies these things, says: Yea, I come quickly. Amen; come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with the saints.
