New International Version
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
King James Bible
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Darby Bible Translation
Blessed [are] they that wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life, and that they should go in by the gates into the city.
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation

Blessed are they that do his commandments - They are happy who are obedient.

Without grace no obedience; without obedience no authority to the tree of life; without authority no right; without right no enjoyment: God's grace through Christ produces the good, and then rewards it as if all had been our own.
