Vision of the New Jerusalem
9 And there came unto me one of the seven Angels, which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and a high mountain, and he shewed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God, and her shining was like unto a stone most precious, as a jasper stone clear as crystal,
12 And had a great wall and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels, and the names written, which are the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
13 On the East part there were three gates, and on the Northside three gates, on the Southside three gates, and on the Westside three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the Names of the Lambs twelve Apostles.
15 And he that talked with me, had a golden reed, to measure the city withal, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lay foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs; and the length, and the breadth, and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred forty and four cubits, by the measure of man, that is, of the Angel.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper; the second of Sapphire; the third of a Chalcedony; the fourth of an Emerald;
20 The fifth of a Sardonyx; the sixth of a Sardius; the seventh of a Chrysolite; the eighth of a Beryl; the ninth of a Topaz; the tenth of a Chrysoprasus; the eleventh of a Jacinth; the twelfth an Amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, and every gate is of one pearl, and the street of the city is pure gold, as shining glass.
22 And I saw no Temple therein, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple of it.
23 And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God did light it, and the Lamb is the light of it.
24 And the people which are saved, shall walk in the light of it; and the Kings of the earth shall bring their glory and honor unto it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut by day, for there shall be no night there.
26 And the glory and honor of the Gentiles shall be brought unto it.
27 And there shall enter into it none unclean thing, neither whatsoever worketh abomination or lies, but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
