bright as crystal,
from the throne
and of the Lamb
2 through the middle of the street of the city;
also, on either side of the river,
the tree of life
with its twelve kinds of fruit,
yielding its fruit each month.
The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 No longer will there be anything accursed,

will see his face,
and his name will be on their foreheads.

the Alpha and the Omega,
the first and the last,
the beginning and the end.”

and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
