And measures and matters of The Truth of the "time" we are in ...how "man" ..."thought to change time and times ...
Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.
Behold in a dream during the dread nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken and shown a man ....
and the man loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man went here ...and there ...
and walked through out the land and the world ...
and there was others of the same ...
and the they grew and drew one to another...
even as God and Jesus gave increase and knit them together.
and that in truth and spirit and flesh.
and the children ...young and old and men and woman and single and single moms all became as one ...even children.
and helped each other as though they were family.
NOW the man looked upon them all as though able in the spirit.
and they had one heart and mind and soul and body for the love of God and Jesus and the truth.
and the man was overwhelmed of the love they shared and the helps they willingly performed for the increase of each other ...
even the building and keeping and making each others house more worthy.
and the appearing man ...was moved to record them as a family ...
even as though a family photo ...
and the people gathered together happily as one family ...to be recorded ...
and the appearing man stood there to make the recording...
Nevertheless a pen was given the appearing man ...
and he thought ...how am i to make a family photo with a pen?
and the people went back to the helping of each other ...
and increasing another ...ones house.
and the appearing man looked at the pen he was given ...
and he looked through the pen ...and could see.
and NOW that he could see ...the appearing man called the people back together again.
and explained to them that no record was to be made of images or icons or statues of the family.
and AGAIN ...the people stood together ...as one.
and they all smiled from their hearts.
and the appearing man made record of them.
and i wondered a mighty wonder of being shown this measure of matters ...
and words came to me without speaking to look to the "ink horn"
and i did ...
JOB Chpt 19
Job answered, and said: how long will ye vex my mind, and trouble me with words? Lo, ten times have ye reproved me: are ye not ashamed, for to laugh me to scorn? If I go wrong, I go wrong to myself. But if ye will enhance yourselves against me, and accuse me to be a wicked person because of the shame that is come upon me: know this then, that it is God, which hath handled me so violently, and hath compassed me about with his scourges. Behold, though I cry, yet violence is done unto me, I can not be heard: Though I complain, there is none to give sentence with me. He hath hedged up my path, I can not get away, he hath set darkness in my gate. He hath spoiled me of mine honor, and taken the crown away from my head. He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am undone: My hope hath he taken away from me, as it were a tree plucked up by the root. His wrath is kindled against me, he taketh me, as though I were his enemy.
His men of war came together, which made their way over me, and besieged my dwelling round about. He hath put my brethren far away from me, and such as were of mine acquaintance, are become strangers unto me. Mine own kinfolk have forsaken me, and my friends have put me out of remembrance. The servants and maids of mine own house take me for a stranger, and I am become as an *aleaunt in their sight.
When I call upon my servant, he giveth me no answer: no though I pray him with my mouth. Mine own wife may not abide my breath, I am faint to speak fair unto the children of mine own body. Yee the very desert fools despise me, and when I am gone from them, they speak evil upon me. All such as were my most familiar, abhor me: And they whom I loved best, are turned against me. My bone hangeth to my skin, and my flesh is away, only there is left me the skin about my teeth. Have pity upon me, ( O ye my friends ) for the hand of the Lord hath touched me. Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied of my flesh?
O' that my words were written, O' that they were put in a book: would God they were graven with an iron pen in lead or stone. For I am sure, that my redeemer liveth, and that I shall rise out of the earth in the latter day: that I shall be clothed again with this skin, and see God in my flesh. Yee I myself shall behold him, not with other but these same eyes. My reins are consumed within in me, when ye say: Why do we not persecute him? We have found an occasion against him. But beware of the sword, for the sword will be avenged of wickedness, and be sure, that there is a judgement.

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 8
At the same time, saith the Lord: the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of his princes, the bones of the priests, and prophets, yee and the bones of the citizens of Jerusalem, shall be brought out of their graves and layed against the Sun, the Moon and all the heavenly host: whom they loved, whom they served, whom they ran after, whom they sought and worshipped. They shall neither be gathered together ner buried, but shall lay upon the earth, to their shame and despising.
And all that remain of this wicked generation, shall desire rather to die than to live: wheresoever they remain, and where as I scatter them, saith the Lord of Hosts.
This shalt thou say unto them also: Thus saith the Lord: Do men fall also, that they arise not up again? And turn they so far away, that they never convert? Wherefore then is this people and Jerusalem gone so far back, that they turn not again. They are ever the longer the more obstinate, and will not be converted.
For I have looked, and considered: but there is no man that speaketh a good word: there is no man that taketh repentance for his sin, that will so much as say: wherefore have I done this? But every man ( as soon as he is turned back ) runneth forth still, like a wild horse in battle. The Stork knoweth his appointed time, the Turtledove, the Swallow and the Crane consider the time of travail: but my people will not know the time of the punishment of the Lord. How dare ye say then: we are wise, we have the law of the Lord among us?
Behold, the deceitful pen of the scribes, setteth forth lies: therefore shall the wise be confounded, they shall be afraid and taken: for lo, they have cast out the word of the Lord: what wisdom can then be among them? Wherefore, I will give their wives unto aliens, and their fields to destroyers.
From the lowest to the highest, they follow all filthy lucre: and from the Prophet unto the priest, they deal with all lies. Nevertheless, they heal the hurt of my people with sweet words, saying peace, peace where there is no peace at all.
*Fie for shame, how abominable things do they? and yet they be not ashamed, yee they know no shame.
Wherefore in the time of their visitation, they shall fall among dead bodies, sayeth the Lord.
Moreover I will gather them in ( sayeth the Lord ) so that there shall not be one grape upon the vine, neither one fig upon the fig tree, and the leaves shall be plucked off.
Then will I cause them to depart, and say: why prolong we the time? Let us gather ourselves together, and go into the strong city, there shall we be in rest: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water mixed with gall, to drink: because we have sinned against him.
We looked for peace, and we fair not the better, we waited for the time of health, and lo, there is nothing but trouble.
Then shall the noise of his horses be heard from Dan, the whole land shall be afraid at the neighing of his strong horses: for they shall go in, and devour the land, with all that is in it: the cities, and those that dwell therin. Moreover , I will send Cockatrices and serpents among you ( which will not be charmed ) and they shall bite you sayeth the Lord.
Sorrow is come upon me, and heaviness vexeth my heart: for lo, the voice of the crying of my people is heard from a far country: Is not the Lord in Sion? Is not the king in her? Wherefore then have they grieved me ( shall the Lord say ) with their images and foolish strange fashions? The harvest is gone, the Summer hath an end, and we are not helped. I am sore vexed, because of the hurt of my people: I am heavy and abashed, for there is no more *Tryacle at Gilaad, and there is no Physician, that can heal the hurt of my people.
Fie = used to express distaste or disapproval.
Tryacle = speech of sentiment, or medicine, antidote against poison. molasses
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 17
Your sin ( O ye of the tribe of Judah ) is written in the table of your hearts, and graven so upon the edges of your altars with a pen of iron and with an adamant claw: that your children also may think upon your altars, woods, thick trees, high hills, mountains and fields. Wherefore, I will make all your substance and treasure be spoiled, for the great sin that ye have done upon your high places throughout all the coasts of your land. Ye shall be cast out also from the heritage, that I gave you. And I will subdue you under the heavy bondage of your enemies, in a land that ye know not. For ye have ministered fire to my indignation, which shall burn evermore. Thus saith the Lord: Cursed be the man that putteth his trust in man, that taketh flesh for his arm: and he, whose heart departeth from the Lord. He shall be like the *heeth that groweth in the wilderness. As for the good thing that is for to come, he shall not see it : but dwell in a dry place of the wilderness, in a salt and unoccupied land. O blessed is the man, that putteth his trust in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord himself. For he shall be as a tree, that is planted by the water side: which spreadeth out the root unto moistness, whom the heat can not harm, when it cometh, but his leaves are green. And though there grow but little fruit because of drought, yet is he not careful, but he never leaveth off to bring forth fruit. Among all things living, man hath the most disceitful and unsearchable heart.
Who shall then know it? Even I the Lord search out the ground of the heart, and try the reins, and reward every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his counsels.
The disceitful maketh a nest, but bring forth no young: He cometh by riches, but not righteously. In the midst of his life he must leave them behind him, and at the last be found a very fool. But thou ( O' Lord ) whose throne is most glorious, excellent and most antiquite, which dwelleth in the place of our holy rest: Thou art the comfort of Israel. All they that forsake thee, shall be confounded: all they that depart from thee, shall be written in earth, for they have forsaken the Lord the very *condite of the waters of life.
Heal me, O' Lord, and I shall be whole: save me, and I shall be saved, for thou art my praise. Behold, these men say unto me: Where is the word of the Lord? Let it come. Where as I nevertheless leading the flock in thy ways, have compelled none by violence. For I never desired any mans death, this knowest thou well. My words also are right before thee. Be not now terrible unto me, O' Lord, for thou art he in whom I hope, when I am in peril. Let my persecutors be confounded, but not me: let them be afraid, and not me. Thou shalt bring upon them the time of their plague, and shall destroy them right sore.
Again, thus hath the Lord said unto me: Go stand under the gate, where through the people and the kings of Juda go out and in, yee under all the gates of Jerusalem, and say unto them: Hear the word of the Lord, ye kings of Juda, and all thou people of Juda, and all ye citizens of Jerusalem, that go through this gate: Thus the Lord commandeth: Take heed for your lives, that ye carry no burden upon you in the Sabbath, to bring it through the gates of Jerusalem: ye shall bear no burden also out of your houses in the Sabbath, as I commanded your fathers. How be it they obeyed me not, neither harkened they unto me: but were obstinate and stubborn, and neither obeyed me, nor received my correction. Nevertheless, if ye will hear me (sayeth the Lord ) and bear no burden in to the city through this gate upon the Sabbath: If ye will hallow the Sabbath, so that ye do no work therin: then shall there go through the gates of this city, kings and princes, that shall sit upon the stool of David: They shall be carried upon chariots, and ride upon horses, both they and their princes. Yee whole Juda and all the citizens of Jerusalem shall go here through, and this city shall ever be the more and more inhabited. There shall come men also from the cities of Judah, from about Jerusalem, and from the land of Ben Jamin, from the plain fields, from the mountains and from the wilderness: which shall bring burntofferings, sacrifices, oblations, and incense, and offer up thanksgiving in the house of the Lord. But if ye will not be obedient unto me, to hallow the Sabbath: so that ye will bear your burdens through the gates of Jerusalem upon the Sabbath: Then shall I set fire upon the gates of Jerusalem, and it shall burn up the houses of Jerusalem, and no man shall quench it

THE THIRD EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 1
The elder unto the beloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth. Beloved I wish in all things that thou prosperedest and faredest well even as thy soul prospereth. I rejoiced greatly when the brethren came, and testified of the truth that is in thee, how thou walkest in truth. I have no greater joy than for to hear how that my sons walk in verity.
Beloved, thou dost faithfully whatsoever thou dost to the brethren, and to strangers, which bare witness of thy love before all the congregation. Which brethren when thou bringest forwards on their journey (as it beseemeth God) thou shalt do well: because that for his names sake they went forth, and took nothing of the Gentiles. We therefore ought to receive such, that we also might be helpers to the truth.
I wrote unto the congregation: but Diotrephes which loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not. Wherefore if I come, I will declare his deeds which he doeth, jesting on us with malicious words, neither is therewith content. Not only he himself receiveth not the brethren: but also he forbiddeth them that would, and thrusteth them out of the congregation.
Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth well is of God: but he that doeth evil seeth not God. Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth: ye and we our selves also bear record, and ye know that our record is true. I have many things to write: but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee. For I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak mouth to mouth. Peace be with thee. The lovers salute thee. Greet the lovers by name.
TO THE PHILIPPIANS Chpt 4
Therefore my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so continue in the Lord ye beloved. I pray Euodias, and beseech Sintiches that they be of one accord in the Lord. Yee and I beseech thee faithful yokefellow, help the women which laboured with me in the gospell, and with Clement also, and with other my labour fellows, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice. Let your softness be known unto all men. The Lord is even at hand. Be not carefull: but in all things show your petition unto God in prayer and supplication with giving of thanks. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ *Jesu.
Furthermore brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things pertain to love, whatsoever things are of honest report: if there be any virtuous thing, if there be any laudable thing, those same have ye in your mind, which ye have both learned and received, heard and also seen in me: those things do, and the God of peace shall be with you. I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at the last ye are revived again to care for me, in that wherein ye were also carefull, but ye lacked opportunity. I speak not because of necessity. For I have learned in whatsoever estate I am therewith to be content. I can both cast down myself, I can also exceed. Everywhere and in all things I am instructed, both to be full and to be hungry: to have plenty, and to suffer need. I can do all things through the help of Christ which strengtheneth me. Not withstanding ye have well done, that ye bare part with me in my tribulation.
Ye of Philippos know that in the beginning of the Gospell, when I departed from Macedonia, no congregation bare part with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For when I was in Thessalonica, ye sent once and afterward again unto my needs: not that I desire gifts: but I desire abundant fruit on your part. I received all, and have plenty. I was even filled after that I have received of Epaphroditus, that which came from you, an odor that smelleth sweet, a sacrifice accepted and pleasant to God. My God fulfil all your needs through his glorious riches in Jesu Christ. Unto God and our father be praise for evermore. Amen. Salute all the saints in Christ Jesu. The brethren which are with me, greet you. All the saints salute you: and most of all they which are of the emperors household. The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all. Amen

And write unto the messenger of the congregation of Sardis: This sayth he that hath the spirit of God and the seven stars. I know your works: thou hast a name that you livest, and you are dead. Be awake and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die. For I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If you shalt not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and thou shall not know what hour I will come upon thee. You hast a few names in Sardis, which have not defiled their garments: and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy. He that overcometh shall be clothed in white array, and I will not put out his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my father, and before his Angels. Let him that hath ears, hear, what the spirit sayth unto the congregations.
And write unto the tidings bringer of the congregation of Philadelphia: this sayth he that is holy and true, which hath the key of David: which openeth and no man shuteth, and shuteth and no man openeth. I know your works. Behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it, for you have a little strength and hath kept my sayings: and hast not denied my name. Behold I make them of the congregation of Sathan, which call them selves Jewes and are not, but do lie: Behold, I will make them that they shall come and worship before your feet: and shall know that I love thee.
Because thou hast kept the words of my patience therefore I will keep thee from the hour of temptation which will come upon all the world, to tempt them that dwell upon the earth. Behold I come shortly. Hold that which thou hast, that no man take away thy crown. Him that overcometh, will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out. And I will write upon him, the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, new Jerusalem: which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and I will write upon him my new name. Let him that hath ears, hear, what the spirit saith unto the congregations.
And unto the messenger of the congregation which is in Laodicia, write: This saith (Amen) the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creatures of God. I know thy works that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. So then because thou art between both, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth: because thou sayst thou art rich and increased with goods, and hast need of nothing, and knowest not how thou art: wretched and miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayst be rich: and white raiment, that thou mayst be clothed, that thy filthy nakedness do not appear: and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayst see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Be fervent therefore and repent. Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in unto him and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh, will I grant to sit with me in my seat, even as I over came and have sitten with my father, in his seat. Let him that hath ears, hear what the spirit saith unto the congregations
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 13
And I saw a beast rise out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his head the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw, was like a cat of the mountain, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his seat, and great authority: and I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered at the beast, and they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, and they worshipped the beast saying: who is like unto the beast? who is able to war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth, that spake great things and blasphemies, and power was given unto him, to do forty two months. And he opened his mouth unto blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the Saints, and to over come them. And power was given him over all kindred, tongue, and nation: and all that dwell upon the earth worshipped him: whose names are not written in the book of life of the lamb, which was killed from the beginning of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity, shall go into captivity: he that killeth with a sword, must be killed with a sword. Heare is the patience, and the faith of the saints.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as did the dragon. And he did all that the first beast could do in his presence, and he caused the earth, and them which dwell therein, to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he did great wonders, so that he made fire come down from heaven in the sight of men. And deceived them that dwelt on the earth by the means of those signs which he had power to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwelt on the earth: that they should make an image unto the beast, which had the wound of a sword, and did live.
And he had power to give a spirit unto the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak, and should cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast, should be killed. And he made all both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hands or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast, *other the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath wit count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, three score and six
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 17
And there came one of the seven Angels, which had the seven vials: and talked with me, saying unto me: come I will show thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, with whom have committed fornication the kings of the earth, so that the inhabiters of the earth, are drunken with the wine of her fornication. And he carried me away into the wilderness in the spirit. And I saw a woman sit upon a rose colored beast full of names of blasphemy which had ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and rose colour and decked with gold, precious stone, and pearls, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, a mystery, great Babylon the mother of whoredom and abominations of the earth. And I saw the wife drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of *Jesu. And when I saw her: I wondered with great marvel.
And the Angel said unto me: wherefore marvellest thou? I will show thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beareth her, which hath seven heads, and ten horns. The beast that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder (whose names are not written in the book of life from the beginning of the world) when they behold the beast that was and is not. And here is a mind that hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth: they are also seven kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come. When he cometh he must continue a space. And the beast that was, and is not, is even the eighth, and is one of the seven, and shall go into destruction. And the ten horns which thou seest, are ten kings, which have received no kingdom, but shall receive power as kings at one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: For he is Lord of lords, and king of kings and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen and faithful.
And he said unto me: the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and folk, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns, which thou sawest upon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate, and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts, to fulfil his will, and to do with one consent, for to give her kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest, is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 20
And I saw an Angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he took the dragon that old serpent, which is the devil and Sathanas, and he bound him a thousand years: and cast him into the bottomless pit, and he bound him, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no more, till the thousand years were fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed for a little season.
And I saw seats and they sat upon them and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of *Jesu, and for the word of God: which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands: and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years: but the other of the dead men lived not again, until the thousand years were finished. This is that first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. For on such shall the second death have no power, for they shall be the Priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the people which are in the four quarters of the earth Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea: and they went up on the plain of the earth, and compassed the tents of the saints about, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them: and the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were and shall be tormented day and night for ever more.
And I saw a great white seat and him that sat on it, from whose face fled away both the earth and heaven, and their place was no more found. And I saw the dead, both great and small *stonde before God: And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged of those things which were written in the books according to their deeds: and the sea gave up her dead, which were in her, and death and hell delivered up the dead, which were in them: and they were judged every man according to his deeds. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is that second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was cast into the lake of fire

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth were vanished away, and there was no more sea. And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone. And he that sat upon the seat, said. Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.
And he said unto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life, free. He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues: and talked with me saying: come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and an high mountain, and he showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the brightness of God. And her shining was like unto a stone most precious, even a Jasper clear as Crystal: and had walls great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels: and names written, which are the twelve tribes of Israel: on the East part three gates, and on the North side three gates, and towards the South three gates, and from the west three gates: and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the lambs twelve apostles.
And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city with all and the gates thereof and the wall thereof. And the city was built four square and the length was as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: and the length and the breadth, and the height of it, were equal. And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty four cubits: the measure that the angel had was after the measure that man useth. And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper. And the city was pure gold like unto clear glass and the foundations of the wall of the city was garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald: the fifth Sardonyx: the sixth Sardeos: the seventh Chrysolite: the eighth Berall: the ninth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleventh a Jacincte: the twelfth an Amatist.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, every gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as through shining glass. And there was no temple therein. For the Lord God almighty and the lamb are the temple of it. and the city hath no need of the *son neither of the moon to lighten it. For the brightness of God did light it: and the lamb was the light of it. And the people which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory unto it. And the gates of it are not shut by day. For there shall be no night there. And there shall enter into it none unclean thing: neither what soever worketh abomination or maketh lies: but they only which are written in the lambs book of life
*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original.

And he showed me a pure river of water of life clear as Crystal: proceeding out of the seat of God and of the lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river was there wood of life: which bare twelve manner of fruits: and gave fruit every month: and the leaves of the wood served to heal the people with all. And there shall be no more curse, but the seat of God and the lamb shall be in it: and his servants shall serve him. And they shall see his face, and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there, and they need no candle, neither light of the sun: for the Lord Giveth them light, and they shall reign for evermore.
And he said unto me: these sayings are faithful and true. And the Lord God of Saints and Prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants, the things which must shortly be fulfilled. Behold I come shortly. Happy is he that keepeth the saying of the prophecy of this book. I am John which 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 showed me these things. And he said unto me: see thou do it not, for I am thy fellow servant and the fellow servant of thy brethren the Prophets and of them which keep the sayings of this book. But worship God.
And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of the prophesy of this book. For the time is at hand. He that doth evil, let him do evil still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous: and he that is holy, let him be more holy. And behold I come shortly, and my reward with me, to give every man according as his deeds shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end: the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that their power may be in the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without shall be dogs and enchanters and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth or maketh leasings.
I Jesus sent mine angel, to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the generation of David, and the bright morning star. And the spirit and the bride said come. And let him that heareth, say also, come. And let him that is a thirst, come. And let whosoever will, take of the water of life, free.
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. And if any man shall minish of 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 those things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith: be it, I come quickly, Amen.
Even so: come Lord Jesu.
The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all:
*If any man shall add unto these things...And if any man shall minish of the words ... discern for yourselves ...the 100's and 100's of dieverse "bibles of man".
