Ufunuo 22:1-21

Mto Wa Maji Ya Uzima

122:1 Ufu 4:6; Eze 47:1; Zek 14:8Kisha yule malaika akanionyesha mto wa maji ya uzima, maangavu kama kioo yakitiririka kutoka kwenye kile kiti cha enzi cha Mungu na cha Mwana-Kondoo, 222:2 Ufu 2:7; Eze 47:12kupitia katikati ya barabara kuu ya huo mji. Kwenye kila upande wa huo mto kulikuwa na mti wa uzima utoao matunda ya aina kumi na mbili, ukizaa matunda yake kila mwezi. Nayo majani ya mti huo ni kwa ajili ya uponyaji wa mataifa. 322:3 Zek 14:11; Ufu 7:15Katika mji huo hakutakuwa tena na laana, bali kiti cha enzi cha Mungu na cha Mwana-Kondoo kitakuwamo humo na watumishi wake watamtumikia, 422:4 Mt 5:8; Ufu 14:1nao watamwona uso wake na Jina lake litakuwa kwenye vipaji vya nyuso zao. 522:5 Ufu 21:23, 25; 20:4; Dan 7:27Usiku hautakuwako tena, wala hawatahitaji mwanga wa taa au wa jua, kwa maana Bwana Mungu atakuwa nuru yao, nao watatawala milele na milele.

622:6 Ufu 1:1; 19:9; 21:5; Ebr 12:9Kisha yule malaika akaniambia, “Maneno haya ni ya kuaminika na kweli. Bwana, Mungu wa roho za manabii, alimtuma malaika wake kuwaonyesha watumishi wake yale ambayo hayana budi kutukia upesi.”

Bwana Yesu Anakuja

722:7 Ufu 3:11; 1:3; Mt 16:27; Ufu 22:10, 18, 19“Tazama, naja upesi! Amebarikiwa yeye ayashikaye maneno ya unabii wa kitabu hiki.”

822:8 Ufu 1:1; 19:10Mimi, Yohana, ndiye niliyesikia na kuyaona mambo haya. Nami nilipokwisha kuyasikia na kuyaona, nilianguka chini nikasujudu miguuni pa yule malaika aliyekuwa akinionyesha mambo hayo. 922:9 Ufu 19:10; 22:10, 18, 19Lakini yeye akaniambia, “Usifanye hivyo! Mimi ni mtumishi pamoja nawe na ndugu zako manabii na wote wanaoyashika maneno ya kitabu hiki. Msujudie Mungu!”

1022:10 Dan 8:26; Ufu 10:4; 1:3Kisha akaniambia, “Usiyafunge maneno ya unabii yaliyomo katika kitabu hiki, kwa sababu wakati umekaribia. 1122:11 Eze 3:27; Dan 12:10Atendaye mabaya na aendelee kutenda mabaya, aliye mchafu na aendelee kuwa mchafu, yeye atendaye haki na aendelee kutenda haki, na yeye aliye mtakatifu na aendelee kuwa mtakatifu.”

1222:12 Isa 14:10; Mt 16:27; Isa 62:11“Tazama, naja upesi! Thawabu yangu i mkononi mwangu, nami nitampa kila mtu sawasawa na alivyotenda. 1322:13 Ufu 1:8, 17; 21:6Mimi ni Alfa na Omega, wa Kwanza na wa Mwisho, Mwanzo na Mwisho.

1422:14 Ufu 2:7; 21:12, 27“Wamebarikiwa wale wafuao mavazi yao, ili wapate haki ya kuuendea huo mti wa uzima na kuuingia huo mji kupitia kwenye malango yake. 1522:15 Kum 23:18; Kol 3:5, 6; Flp 3:2Huko nje wako mbwa, wachawi, wazinzi, wauaji, waabudu sanamu, na kila mtu apendaye udanganyifu na kuufanya.

1622:16 Ufu 1:1, 4; 5:5; 2Pet 1:19; Ufu 2:28“Mimi, Yesu, nimemtuma malaika wangu kushuhudia mambo haya kwa ajili ya makanisa. Mimi ndimi Shina na Mzao wa Daudi, ile Nyota ya Asubuhi ingʼaayo.”

1722:17 Ufu 14:13Roho na bibi arusi wanasema, “Njoo!” Naye asikiaye na aseme, “Njoo!” Yeyote mwenye kiu na aje, na kila anayetaka na anywe maji ya uzima bure.

1822:18 Kum 12:32; Mit 30:6; Ufu 5:6; 16:21Namwonya kila mtu asikiaye maneno ya unabii wa kitabu hiki: Mtu yeyote akiongeza humo chochote, Mungu atamwongezea mapigo yaliyoandikwa katika kitabu hiki. 1922:19 Kum 4:2Kama mtu yeyote akipunguza humo chochote katika maneno ya unabii wa kitabu hiki, Mungu atamwondolea sehemu yake katika ule mti wa uzima na katika ule mji mtakatifu, ambao habari zake zimeandikwa katika kitabu hiki.

2022:20 Ufu 1:2; 1Kor 16:22Yeye anayeshuhudia mambo haya asema, “Hakika, naja upesi!”

Amen. Njoo, Bwana Yesu.

2122:21 Rum 16:20Neema ya Bwana Yesu iwe na watakatifu wote. Amen.

New International Reader’s Version

Revelation 22:1-21

The Earth Is Made Like New Again

1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life. It was as clear as crystal. It flowed from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2It flowed down the middle of the city’s main street. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing 12 crops of fruit. Its fruit was ripe every month. The leaves of the tree bring healing to the nations. 3There will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city. God’s servants will serve him. 4They will see his face. His name will be on their foreheads. 5There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun. The Lord God will give them light. They will rule for ever and ever.

John and the Angel

6The angel said to me, “You can trust these words. They are true. The Lord is the God who gives messages to the prophets. He sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”

7“Look! I am coming soon! Words of prophecy are written in this book. Blessed is the person who obeys them.”

8I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. After that, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel. He is the one who had been showing me these things. 9But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I serve God, just as you do. I am God’s servant, just like the other prophets. And I serve God along with all who obey the words of this book. Worship God!”

10Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy in this book. These things are about to happen. 11Let the person who does wrong keep on doing wrong. Let the evil person continue to be evil. Let the person who does right keep on doing what is right. And let the holy person continue to be holy.”

The Revelation Ends With Warnings and Blessings

12“Look! I am coming soon! I bring my rewards with me. I will reward each person for what they have done. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega. I am the First and the Last. I am the Beginning and the End.

14“Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will have the right to come to the tree of life. They will be allowed to go through the gates into the city. 15Outside the city are those who are impure. These people include those who practice witchcraft. Outside are also those who commit sexual sins and murder. Outside are those who worship statues of gods. And outside is everyone who loves and does what is false.

16“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this witness for the churches. I am the Root and the Son of David. I am the bright Morning Star.”

17The Holy Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And the person who hears should say, “Come!” Anyone who is thirsty should come. Anyone who wants to take the free gift of the water of life should do so.

18I am warning everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book. Suppose someone adds anything to them. Then God will add to that person the plagues told about in this book. 19Suppose someone takes away any words from this book of prophecy. Then God will take away from that person the blessings told about in this book. God will take away their share in the tree of life. God will also take away their place in the Holy City.

20Jesus is a witness about these things. He says, “Yes. I am coming soon.”

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

21May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
