1 Et ostendit mihi fluvium aquae vitae splendidum tamquam crystallum, procedentem de throno Dei et Agni.
2 In medio plateae eius et fluminis ex utraque parte lignum vitae afferens fructus duodecim, per menses singulos reddens fructum suum; et folia ligni ad sanitatem gentium.
3 Et omne maledictum non erit amplius. Et thronus Dei et Agni in illa erit; et servi eius servient illi
4 et videbunt faciem eius, et nomen eius in frontibus eorum.
5 Et nox ultra non erit, et non egent lumine lucernae neque lumine solis, quoniam Dominus Deus illuminabit super illos, et regnabunt in saecula saeculorum.
6 Et dixit mihi: "Haec verba fidelissima et vera sunt, et Dominus, Deus spirituum prophetarum, misit angelum suum ostendere servis suis, quae oportet fieri cito.
7 Et ecce venio velociter. Beatus, qui servat verba prophetiae libri huius".
8 Et ego Ioannes, qui audivi et vidi haec. Et postquam audissem et vidissem, cecidi, ut adorarem ante pedes angeli, qui mihi haec ostendebat.
9 Et dicit mihi: "Vide, ne feceris. Conservus tuus sum et fratrum tuorum prophetarum et eorum, qui servant verba libri huius; Deum adora!".
10 Et dicit mihi: "Ne signaveris verba prophetiae libri huius; tempus enim prope est!
11 Qui nocet, noceat adhuc; et, qui sordidus est, sordescat adhuc; et iustus iustitiam faciat adhuc; et sanctus sanctificetur adhuc.
12 Ecce venio cito, et merces mea mecum est, reddere unicuique sicut opus eius est.
13 Ego Alpha et Omega, primus et novissimus, principium et finis.
14 Beati, qui lavant stolas suas, ut sit potestas eorum super lignum vitae, et per portas intrent in civitatem.
15 Foris canes et venefici et impudici et homicidae et idolis servientes et omnis, qui amat et facit mendacium!
16 Ego Iesus misi angelum meum testificari vobis haec super ecclesiis. Ego sum radix et genus David, stella splendida matutina".
17 Et Spiritus et sponsa dicunt: "Veni!". Et, qui audit, dicat: "Veni!". Et, qui sitit, veniat; qui vult, accipiat aquam vitae gratis.
18 Contestor ego omni audienti verba prophetiae libri huius: Si quis apposuerit ad haec, apponet Deus super illum plagas scriptas in libro isto;
19 et si quis abstulerit de verbis libri prophetiae huius, auferet Deus partem eius de ligno vitae et de civitate sancta, de his, quae scripta sunt in libro isto.
20 Dicit, qui testimonium perhibet istorum: "Etiam, venio cito". "Amen. Veni, Domine Iesu!".
21 Gratia Domini Iesu cum omnibus.
King James Version
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.
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.
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.
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.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
