Knijga O Kristu

Otkrivenje 22:1-21

1Anđeo mi pokaže rijeku vode života, bistru kao prozirac, što izvire iz Božjega i Jaganjčeva prijestolja 2i teče sredinom glavne ulice. S obiju strana rijeke raste drvo života koje donosi rod dvanaest puta—svakoga mjeseca. Lišćem tog stabla liječe se narodi.

3Neće više biti nikakva prokletstva. Božje i Jaganjčevo prijestolje bit će ondje i njihovi će im se sluge klanjati. 4Gledat će njegovo lice, a njegovo će im ime biti napisano na čelima. 5Neće ondje biti noći niti će trebati da im svijetle svjetiljke ili sunce. Obasjavat će ih Gospodin Bog. Oni će kraljevati u vijeke vjekova.

6Anđeo mi reče: “Vjerodostojne su i istinite ove riječi. Gospodin Bog koji nadahnjuje proroke poslao je svojega anđela da pokaže svojim slugama što će se uskoro dogoditi.”

Isus dolazi

7“Evo, uskoro dolazim! Blago onima koji vrše proročke riječi ove knjige!”

8Ja, Ivan, sve sam to čuo i vidio. A kad sam sve čuo i vidio, pao sam pred noge anđelu koji mi je to pokazao da se poklonim. 9Ali on ponovi: “Ne klanjaj se meni! Samo sam Božji sluga, baš kao ti i tvoja braća proroci, kao i svi koji su poslušni riječima ove knjige. Bogu se klanjaj!” 10Zatim mi reče: “Ne zapečaćuj proročke riječi ove knjige da ostanu tajnom jer je vrijeme blizu. 11Neka nepravednici i dalje čine nepravdu. Neka se okaljani i dalje kaljaju. Pravednici neka i dalje čine što je pravedno, a sveti neka se i dalje posvećuju!”

12“Evo, uskoro dolazim i svakome ću platiti prema njegovim djelima. 13Ja sam Alfa i Omega, Početak i Svršetak, Prvi i Posljednji.

14Blago onima koji peru svoje haljine! Bit će im dopušteno ući kroz vrata u grad i jesti plod sa stabla života. 15A izvan grada ostat će psi—vračari, bludnici, ubojice i idolopoklonici te svi koji vole i govore laž.

16Ja, Isus, poslao sam svojega anđela da ti dade ovu poruku za crkve. Ja sam onaj od kojega je David nastao i nasljednik njegovoga prijestolja.22:16 U grčkome: Ja sam korijen i izdanak Davidov. Zvijezda sam Danica.”

17Duh i zaručnica govore: “Dođi!” I tko god ovo čuje, neka kaže: “Dođi!” Neka dođe tko je žedan i neka besplatno zahvati vodu života! 18Svakomu tko sluša proročke riječi ove knjige svjedočim: Doda li tko išta onomu što je ovdje napisano, Bog će mu dodati zla opisana u ovoj knjizi. 19A oduzme li tko nešto od proročkih riječi zapisanih u ovoj knjizi, Bog će mu oduzeti njegov udjel sa stabla života i Sveti grad opisan u ovoj knjizi.

20Svjedok svega ovoga kaže: “Da, uskoro dolazim!”

Amen! Dođi, Gospodine Isuse!

21Neka je milost Gospodina Isusa Krista sa svima vama.

King James Version

Revelation 22:1-21

1And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In 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. 3And 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: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And 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.

6And 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. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And 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. 9Then 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. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He 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. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed 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. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16I 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. 17And 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.

18For 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: 19And 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. 20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
