The River and the Tree of Life

1 Then ahe showed me a briver of the cwater of life, Iclear das crystal, coming from the throne of God and of IIthe Lamb, 2 in the middle of aits street. bOn either side of the river was cthe tree of life, bearing twelve I[kinds of] fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 aThere will no longer be any curse; and bthe throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will cserve Him; 4 they will asee His face, and His bname [will be] on their cforeheads. 5 And athere will no longer be [any] night; and they Iwill not have need bof the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will creign forever and ever.

The river of the water of life.

1 ¶ And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

[1] Ps 36:8, 9; 46:4; Is 41:18; 48:18; 66:12; Jr 2:13; 17:13; Ezk 47:1; Zc 14:8; Jn 4:10, 14; 7:38; 14:16; 15:26; 16:7; Ac 1:4; 2:33; Rv 3:21; 4:5; 5:6, 13; 7:10, 17; 21:6, 11.

The tree of life.

2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name [shall be] in their foreheads.

[2] Gn 2:9; 3:22; Ps 147:3; Pv 3:18; Is 6:10; 57:18; Jr 17:14; Ezk 47:1, 8, 12; Ho 14:4; Mal 4:2; Lk 4:18; 1P 2:24; Rv 2:7; 21:21, 24; 22:1, 14.

The light of the city of God is himself.

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. 6 And he said unto me, These sayings [are] faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed [is] he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8 And I John saw these things, and heard [them]. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

[5] Ps 36:9; 84:11; Pv 4:18; Is 60:19; Dn 7:18, 27; Mt 25:34, 46; Ro 5:17; 2Ti 2:12; 1P 1:3; Rv 3:21; 11:15; 18:23; 21:22.

[7] Rv 1:3; 3:11; 22:9, 10, 12, 20.
[8] Rv 19:10, 19.

The angel will not be worshipped.

9 Then saith he unto me, See [thou do it] not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 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. 15 For without [are] dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
