Revelation chapter 19

1
After this I heard something like the loud voice of a vast multitude in heaven, saying: Hallelujah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our God,
2
because His judgments are true and righteous, because He has judged the notorious prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality; and He has avenged the blood of His servants that was on her hands.
3
A second time they said: Hallelujah! Her smoke ascends forever and ever!
4
Then the 24 elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who is seated on the throne, saying: Amen! Hallelujah!
5
A voice came from the throne, saying: Praise our God, all you His servants, you who fear Him, both small and great!
6
Then I heard something like the voice of a vast multitude, like the sound of cascading waters, and like the rumbling of loud thunder, saying: Hallelujah-- because our Lord God, the Almighty, has begun to reign!
7
Let us be glad, rejoice, and give Him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared herself.
8
She was permitted to wear fine linen, bright and pure. For the fine linen represents the righteous acts of the saints.
9
Then he said to me, "Write: Blessed are those invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb!" He also said to me, "These words of God are true."
10
Then I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow slave with you and your brothers who have the testimony about Jesus. Worship God, because the testimony about Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
11
Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12
His eyes were like a fiery flame, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knows except Himself.
13
He wore a robe stained with blood, and His name is called the Word of God.
14
The armies that were in heaven followed Him on white horses, wearing pure white linen.
15
From His mouth came a sharp sword, so that with it He might strike the nations. He will shepherd them with an iron scepter. He will also trample the winepress of the fierce anger of God, the Almighty.
16
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS
17
Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out in a loud voice, saying to all the birds flying in mid-heaven, "Come, gather together for the great supper of God,
18
so that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of commanders, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of their riders, and the flesh of everyone, both free and slave, small and great."
19
Then I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and against His army.
20
But the beast was taken prisoner, and along with him the false prophet, who had performed signs on his authority, by which he deceived those who accepted the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
21
The rest were killed with the sword that came from the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Revelation chapter 20

1
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key to the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
2
He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for 1,000 years.
3
He threw him into the abyss, closed it, and put a seal on it so that he would no longer deceive the nations until the 1,000 years were completed. After that, he must be released for a short time.
4
Then I saw thrones, and people seated on them who were given authority to judge. [I] also [saw] the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of God's word, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and who had not accepted the mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with the Messiah for 1,000 years.
5
The rest of the dead did not come to life until the 1,000 years were completed. This is the first resurrection.
6
Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over these, but they will be priests of God and the Messiah, and they will reign with Him for 1,000 years.
7
When the 1,000 years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison
8
and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle. Their number is like the sand of the sea.
9
They came up over the surface of the earth and surrounded the encampment of the saints, the beloved city. Then fire came down from heaven and consumed them.
10
The Devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11
Then I saw a great white throne and One seated on it. Earth and heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them.
12
I also saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books.
13
Then the sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead; all were judged according to their works.
14
Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15
And anyone not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation chapter 21

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 existed no longer.
2
I also saw the Holy City, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.
3
Then I heard a loud voice from the throne: Look! God's dwelling is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will exist no longer; grief, crying, and pain will exist no longer, because the previous things have passed away.
5
Then the One seated on the throne said, "Look! I am making everything new." He also said, "Write, because these words are faithful and true."
6
And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give to the thirsty from the spring of living water as a gift.
7
The victor will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son.
8
But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars-- their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."
9
Then one of the seven angels, who had held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues, came and spoke with me: "Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
10
He then carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
11
arrayed with God's glory. Her radiance was like a very precious stone, like a jasper stone, bright as crystal.
12
[The city] had a massive high wall, with 12 gates. Twelve angels were at the gates; [on the gates], names were inscribed, the names of the 12 tribes of the sons of Israel.
13
There were three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14
The city wall had 12 foundations, and on them were the 12 names of the Lamb's 12 apostles.
15
The one who spoke with me had a gold measuring rod to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
16
The city is laid out in a square; its length and width are the same. He measured the city with the rod at 12,000 stadia. Its length, width, and height are equal.
17
Then he measured its wall, 144 cubits according to human measurement, which the angel used.
18
The building material of its wall was jasper, and the city was pure gold like clear glass.
19
The foundations of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone: the first foundation jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
20
the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.
21
The 12 gates are 12 pearls; each individual gate was made of a single pearl. The broad street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
22
I did not see a sanctuary in it, because the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its sanctuary.
23
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because God's glory illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
24
The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.
25
Each day its gates will never close because it will never be night there.
26
They will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
27
Nothing profane will ever enter it: no one who does what is vile or false, but only those written in the Lamb's book of life.

Revelation chapter 22

1
Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2
down the middle of the broad street [of the city]. On both sides of the river was the tree of life bearing 12 kinds of fruit, producing its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations,
3
and there will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and His servants will serve Him.
4
They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.
5
Night will no longer exist, and people will not need lamplight or sunlight, because the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign forever and ever.
6
Then he said to me, "These words are faithful and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must quickly take place."
7
"Look, I am coming quickly! Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic words of this book."
8
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had shown them to me.
9
But he said to me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow slave with you, your brothers the prophets, and those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."
10
He also said to me, "Don't seal the prophetic words of this book, because the time is near.
11
Let the unrighteous go on in unrighteousness; let the filthy go on being made filthy; let the righteous go on in righteousness; and let the holy go on being made holy."
12
"Look! I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to repay each person according to what he has done.
13
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates.
15
Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
16
"I, Jesus, have sent My angel to attest these things to you for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright Morning Star."
17
Both the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" Anyone who hears should say, "Come!" And the one who is thirsty should come. Whoever desires should take the living water as a gift.
18
I testify to everyone who hears the prophetic words of this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book.
19
And if anyone takes away from the words of this prophetic book, God will take away his share of the tree of life and the holy city, written in this book.
20
He who testifies about these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly." Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
21
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.
