1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first
heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
2 And I saw the
holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard
a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘See, the home of God
is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples,
and God himself will be with them;
4 he will wipe
every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and
crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed
5 And the one
who was seated on the throne said, ‘See, I am making all things
new.’ Also he said, ‘Write this, for these words are
trustworthy and true.’
6 Then he said
to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning
and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the
spring of the water of life.
