Revelation 22:1-21 NIV

Eden Restored

1Then the angel showed me the River of the Water of Life, as clear as crystal, flowing from The THRONE of GOD and of The LAMB 2down the middle of the great street of the city.

On each side of the river stood the Tree of Life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 

3No longer will there be any curse. The THRONE of GOD and of The LAMB Will Be in the city, and HIS servants will serve HIM. 

4They will see HIS FACE, and HIS NAME Will be on their foreheads. 

5There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for The LORD GOD Will Give them Light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

John and the Angel

6The angel said to me, 

“These words are trustworthy and true. The LORD, The 

GOD WHO Inspires the prophets, Sent HIS angel to 

Show HIS servants the things that must soon take 


7 “Look, I AM Coming Soon! 

Blessed is the one who keeps the 

WORDS of the Prophecy written in this 


8I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. 

9But he said to me, 

“Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with 

your fellow prophets and with all who keep The 

WORDS of this scroll. 

Worship GOD!”

10Then he told me,

“Do not seal up The WORDS of the Prophecy of this 

scroll, because the time is near.

11Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.”

Epilogue: Invitation and Warning

12 “Look, I AM Coming Soon! 

MY Reward Is With ME, and I Will Give to 

each person according to what they 

have 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, that they 

may have the right to the Tree of Life and may go 

through the gates into the city. 

15Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, 

the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and 

everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

16 “I, JESUS, Have Sent MY angel To Give 

you this Testimony for the churches. 

I AM The ROOT and The Offspring of 

David, and The Bright Morning Star.”

17 The SPIRIT and the bride say, “Come!” 

And let the one who hears say, “Come!” 

Let the one who is thirsty come; and let 

the one who wishes take the Free Gift of 

the Water of Life.

18I warn everyone who hears The WORDS of the Prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, GOD Will Add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 

19And if anyone takes WORDS away from this scroll of Prophecy, GOD Will Take Away from that person any share in the Tree of Life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

20HE WHO Testifies to these things Says, 



21 The Grace of The LORD JESUS Be With GOD’S
