5Revelation 21:10-1710 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
611 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
712 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
813 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
914 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
1015 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
1116 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
1217 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
13Revelation 22:1-61And he showed me a pure[a] river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

153 And 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. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
165 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.

54Matthew 1:18-2318 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
5519 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.
5620 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
5721 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
