Bible: Revelation 21:21-27

21:21 And the twelve gates are twelve pearls – each one of the gates is made from just one pearl! The 1  main street 2  of the city is pure gold, like transparent glass.

21:22 Now 3  I saw no temple in the city, because the Lord God – the All-Powerful 4 and the Lamb are its temple. 21:23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because the glory of God lights it up, and its lamp is the Lamb. 21:24 The nations 5  will walk by its light and the kings of the earth will bring their grandeur 6  into it. 21:25 Its gates will never be closed during the day 7  (and 8  there will be no night there). 9  21:26 They will bring the grandeur and the wealth 10  of the nations 11  into it, 21:27 but 12  nothing ritually unclean 13  will ever enter into it, nor anyone who does what is detestable 14  or practices falsehood, 15  but only those whose names 16  are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
