Revelation 22
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And he showed me a river of water of life, bright (shining, splendid) as crystal, flowing forth from out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the middle of its street, and on this side and on that side of the river, the tree of life, producing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit according to each month; and the leaves of the tree unto the healing (therapeian, latin-sanitatem-health) of the ethnicities. 3And there will not be any longer any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it; and His servants (bond-slaves) will serve Him. 4And they will see His face; and His name will be upon their foreheads. 5And there will be no night and they have no need of the light of a lamp and the light of the sun; because the Lord God will enlighten upon them and they will reign unto the ages of the ages.

6And he said to me, These words are faithful and true; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show His servants the things that must come to pass in quickness.

7And Behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one keeping the words of the prophecy of this book.

8And I, John, am the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship in front of the angel showing me these things. 9And he says to me, See not [to do this]: I am your fellow servant and of your brothers, the prophets, and of those keeping the words of this book. Worship God!

10And he says to me, Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near. 11The one being unrighteous (unjust), let him be unrighteous still; and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he who is righteous (just), let him practice righteousness (justice) still; and he who is holy, let him be holy still.

12Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward (wages) is with Me, to give (give back, return) to each as is his work. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

14Blessed are those washing their robes so that there will be their authority (right) upon the tree of life and they shall enter into the city by the gates. 15Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators (sexually immoral), and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone loving and practicing falsehood.

16I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify these things to you in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright (latin-splendida) Morning Star.

17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And the one hearing, let him say, Come! and the one thirsting let him come; the one wanting, let him take the water of life freely.

18I testify to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book, If anyone should add upon these things, God will add upon him the plagues having been written in this book. 19And if anyone should take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from out of the holy city, of those having been written in this book.

20He testifying these things says, Yes, I am coming quickly. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

21[The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the holy [ones]. Amen.]—this is not in Latin Vulgate but is in most English translations.
