Revelation 22
Worsley's New Testament Par ▾ 

The River of Life

1And he shewed me a pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God, and of the Lamb. 2And in the midst of the street, and of the river, which ran on each side, was the tree of life, producing fruits twelve times in the year, yielding its different fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3And every curse shall cease: and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall serve Him. 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be on their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there: and they have no need of a candle, nor of the light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light; and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Jesus Is Coming

6And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets hath sent his angel to shew unto his servants what must soon be.

7For behold I come quickly: happy is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book.

8And I John am he who saw and heard these things: and when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel, who shewed me these things. 9And he said unto me, See thou do it not: for I am a fellow-servant of thine, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of those who observe the words of this book: worship God.

10And he said unto me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near. 11Let him, that is unjust, be unjust still: and let him, that is filthy, be filthy still: and let him, that is righteous, be righteous still; and let him, that is holy, be holy still.

12And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to recompense every one according to his work. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14Happy are they that do his commandments, so shall they have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city. 15But without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and every one that loveth and practiseth falshood.

16I Jesus have sent my messenger to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am both the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star.

17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him that heareth say, Come. And let him, that thirsteth, Come. And let him, that desireth it, take the water of life freely.

Nothing May Be Added or Removed

18I testify to every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any one add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19and if any one take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in this book.

20He who testifieth these things saith, I surely come quickly. Amen, even so come, Lord Jesus.

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