22 And he showed me aa 1pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 bIn the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was cthe tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were dfor the healing of the nations. 3 And ethere shall be no more curse, fbut the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His gservants shall serve Him. 4 hThey shall see His face, and iHis name shall be on their foreheads. 5 jThere shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor klight of the sun, for lthe Lord God gives them light. mAnd they shall reign forever and ever.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
