1And He showed me a pure river of Mayim Khayim, clear as crystal, gushing out of the throne of Elohim and of HaSeh. 2In the midst of the great street of the city, and on either side of the river, was Etz HaKhayim, which bore twelve kinds of fruits, and each month it yielded one of its fruits; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the peoples. 3And that which withers shall be no more, but the throne of Elohim and of HaSeh shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him; 4and they shall see His face, and His Name shall be on their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there; and they shall neither need a candle nor the light of the sun; for יהוה Elohim shines on them, and they shall reign forever and ever.
6And He said to me, “These sayings are faithful and true; and יהוה Elohim, who is HaRu’akh of the Nevi’im, sent His Malakh to show to His servants the things which shortly must come to pass. 7Behold, I am coming soon; blessed is he who keeps the sayings of the Nevu’ah of this book.” 8And I, Yokhanan, heard and saw these things, and when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the Malakh who showed these things to me. 9And he said to me, “Do not do that; I am your fellow servant and of your brethren the Nevi’im and of those who keep the words of this Sefer. Worship Elohim.” 10Then He said to me, “Do not seal the words of the Nevu’ah of this Sefer, for the time is at hand. 11He who is unrighteous will continue to be unrighteous, and he who is filthy will continue to be filthy, and he who is righteous will continue to do tzedaka, and he who is kadosh will continue to be kadosh. 12Behold, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alef and Tav, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14Blessed are those who do His Mitzvot, that they may have the right to Etz HaKhayim, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are the vicious and magicians and the immoral and murderers and idolaters and whoever loves to tell lies. 16I, Yeshua, have sent my Malakh to testify to you these things in the congregations. I am the Shoresh David, and his offspring, the bright morning star. 17And HaRu’akh and HaKalah say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And he who is thirsty, let him come. And whoever will, let him take of the Mayim Khayim freely. 18I testify to every man who hears the words of the Nevu’ah of this Sefer, if any man shall add to these things, Elohim shall add to him the plagues that are written in this Sefer; 19and if any man shall take away from the words of the Sefer of this Nevu’ah, Elohim shall take away his portion from Etz HaKhayim and from the kadosh city, and from the things which are written in this Sefer.”
20He who testifies these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amein. Come, Adon Yeshua. 21The compassion of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh be with you all, all you K’doshim. Amein.
