Rejoicing in Heaven | The Marriage Supper of the Lamb | The Rider on a White Horse

 

19:2

Rejoicing in Heaven

 

1 After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Hallelujah! ​​​​​​​Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, ​​​

 

2 ​​​​​​​​for his judgments are true and just; ​​​​​​​for he has judged the great prostitute ​​​​​​​who corrupted the earth with her immorality, ​​​​​​​and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.

Deuteronomy 32:43

Rejoice with him, O heavens; ​​​​​​​bow down to him, all gods, ​​​​​​​for he avenges the blood of his children ​​​​​​​and takes vengeance on his adversaries. ​​​​​​​He repays those who hate him ​​​​​​​and cleanses his people's land.

 

Psalm 119:137

Righteous are you, O LORD, ​​​​​​​and right are your rules.

 

Jeremiah 51:48

​​​​​​​​Then the heavens and the earth, ​​​​​​​and all that is in them, ​​​​​​​shall sing for joy over Babylon, ​​​​​​​for the destroyers shall come against them out of the north, ​​​​​​​declares the LORD.

19:3

​​​3 Once more they cried out, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Hallelujah! ​​​​​​​The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.” ​​​

 

​4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”

Isaiah 34:9-10

​​​​​​​​And the streams of Edom shall be turned into pitch, ​​​​​​​and her soil into sulfur; ​​​​​​​her land shall become burning pitch. ​​​ 10 ​​​​​​​​Night and day it shall not be quenched; ​​​​​​​its smoke shall go up forever. ​​​​​​​From generation to generation it shall lie waste; ​​​​​​​none shall pass through it forever and ever.

 

Jeremiah 51:48

​​​​​​​​Then the heavens and the earth, ​​​​​​​and all that is in them, ​​​​​​​shall sing for joy over Babylon, ​​​​​​​for the destroyers shall come against them out of the north, ​​​​​​​declares the LORD.

19:5

5 And from the throne came a voice saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Praise our God, ​​​​​​​all you his servants, ​​​​​​​you who fear him, ​​​​​​​small and great.” ​​​

Psalm 22:23

You who fear the LORD, praise him! ​​​​​​​All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him, ​​​​​​​and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel! ​​​

 

Psalm 134:1

​​​​​​​​Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, ​​​​​​​who stand by night in the house of the LORD!

 

Psalm 135:1

​​​​​​​​Praise the LORD! ​​​​​​​Praise the name of the LORD, ​​​​​​​give praise, O servants of the LORD,

19:6

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

 

6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Hallelujah! ​​​​​​​For the Lord our God ​​​​​​​the Almighty reigns. ​​​

 

7 ​​​​​​​​Let us rejoice and exult ​​​​​​​and give him the glory, ​​​​​​​for the marriage of the Lamb has come, ​​​​​​​and his Bride has made herself ready; ​​​

 

8 ​​​​​​​​it was granted her to clothe herself ​​​​​​​with fine linen, bright and pure”- ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. ​​​

 

9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

 

10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Psalm 93:1

​​​​​​​​The LORD reigns; he is robed in majesty; ​​​​​​​the LORD is robed; he has put on strength as his belt. ​​​​​​​Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.

​​​​​​​​The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; ​​​​​​​let the many coastlands be glad!

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory.

His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude.

19:11

The Rider on a White Horse

 

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.

 

12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself.

Psalm 18:10

He rode on a cherub and flew; ​​​​​​​he came swiftly on the wings of the wind. ​​​

 

Psalm 45:3-4

​​​​​​​​Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, ​​​​​​​in your splendor and majesty! ​​​ 4 ​​​​​​​​In your majesty ride out victoriously ​​​​​​​for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; ​​​​​​​let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!

 

Isaiah 11:4-5

​​​​​​​​but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, ​​​​​​​and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; ​​​​​​​and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, ​​​​​​​and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked. ​​​ 5 ​​​​​​​​Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist, ​​​​​​​and faithfulness the belt of his loins. ​​​

 

Ezekiel 1:1

In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

19:13

13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.

 

14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.

Isaiah 63:3

“I have trodden the winepress alone, ​​​​​​​and from the peoples no one was with me; ​​​​​​​I trod them in my anger ​​​​​​​and trampled them in my wrath; ​​​​​​​their lifeblood spattered on my garments, ​​​​​​​and stained all my apparel.

19:15

15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.

Psalm 2:8-9

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, ​​​​​​​and the ends of the earth your possession. ​​​ 9 ​​​​​​​​You shall break them with a rod of iron ​​​​​​​and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

 

Isaiah 11:4

​​​​​​​​but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, ​​​​​​​and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; ​​​​​​​and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, ​​​​​​​and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.

 

Isaiah 63:3-6

​​​​​​I have trodden the winepress alone, ​​​​​​​and from the peoples no one was with me; ​​​​​​​I trod them in my anger ​​​​​​​and trampled them in my wrath; ​​​​​​​their lifeblood spattered on my garments, ​​​​​​​and stained all my apparel. ​​​ 4 ​​​​​​​​For the day of vengeance was in my heart, ​​​​​​​and my year of redemption had come. ​​​ 5 ​​​​​​​​I looked, but there was no one to help; ​​​​​​​I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold; ​​​​​​​so my own arm brought me salvation, ​​​​​​​and my wrath upheld me. ​​​ 6 ​​​​​​​​I trampled down the peoples in my anger; ​​​​​​​I made them drunk in my wrath, ​​​​​​​and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.” ​​​

19:16

16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

Deuteronomy 10:17

For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.

19:17

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God,

Isaiah 34:6-7

The LORD has a sword; it is sated with blood; ​​​​​​​it is gorged with fat, ​​​​​​​with the blood of lambs and goats, ​​​​​​​with the fat of the kidneys of rams. ​​​​​​​For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, ​​​​​​​a great slaughter in the land of Edom. ​​​ 7 ​​​​​​​​Wild oxen shall fall with them, ​​​​​​​and young steers with the mighty bulls. ​​​​​​​Their land shall drink its fill of blood, ​​​​​​​and their soil shall be gorged with fat.

 

Ezekiel 39:17

As for you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD: Speak to the birds of every sort and to all beasts of the field, ‘Assemble and come, gather from all around to the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you, a great sacrificial feast on the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat flesh and drink blood.

19:18

18 to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.

Isaiah 34:6-7

The LORD has a sword; it is sated with blood; ​​​​​​​it is gorged with fat, ​​​​​​​with the blood of lambs and goats, ​​​​​​​with the fat of the kidneys of rams. ​​​​​​​For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, ​​​​​​​a great slaughter in the land of Edom. ​​​ 7 ​​​​​​​​Wild oxen shall fall with them, ​​​​​​​and young steers with the mighty bulls. ​​​​​​​Their land shall drink its fill of blood, ​​​​​​​and their soil shall be gorged with fat.

19:19

19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who was sitting on the horse and against his army.

Psalm 2:2

​​​​​​​The kings of the earth set themselves, ​​​​​​​and the rulers take counsel together, ​​​​​​​against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,

 

Joel 3:9-11

​​​​​​​Proclaim this among the nations: ​​​​​​​Consecrate for war; ​​​​​​​stir up the mighty men. ​​​​​​​Let all the men of war draw near; ​​​​​​​let them come up. ​​​ 10 ​​​​​​​​Beat your plowshares into swords, ​​​​​​​and your pruning hooks into spears; ​​​​​​​let the weak say, “I am a warrior.”

19:20

20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.

Isaiah 30:33

For a burning place has long been prepared; indeed, for the king it is made ready, its pyre made deep and wide, with fire and wood in abundance; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.

 

Daniel 7:11

I looked then because of the sound of the great words that the horn was speaking. And as I looked, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire.

21 And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.

Ezekiel 39:19-20

19 And you shall eat fat till you are filled, and drink blood till you are drunk, at the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you. 20 And you shall be filled at my table with horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all kinds of warriors,’ declares the Lord GOD.

 

The Thousand Years | The Defeat of Satan | Judgment Before the Great White Throne

 

20:2

The Thousand Years

 

1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain.

 

2 And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,

 

3 and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.

Genesis 3:1

Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. ​​​​​​​​​​​He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”

 

Genesis 3:13-14

Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14 The LORD God said to the serpent, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Because you have done this, ​​​​​​​cursed are you above all livestock ​​​​​​​and above all beasts of the field; ​​​​​​​on your belly you shall go, ​​​​​​​and dust you shall eat ​​​​​​​all the days of your life.

 

Isaiah 24:21-22

​​​​​​​​On that day the LORD will punish ​​​​​​​the host of heaven, in heaven, ​​​​​​​and the kings of the earth, on the earth. ​​​ 22 ​​​​​​​​They will be gathered together ​​​​​​​as prisoners in a pit; ​​​​​​​they will be shut up in a prison, ​​​​​​​and after many days they will be punished. ​​​

20:4

4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Daniel 7:9

As I looked, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​thrones were placed, ​​​​​​​and the Ancient of Days took his seat; ​​​​​​​his clothing was white as snow, ​​​​​​​and the hair of his head like pure wool; ​​​​​​​his throne was fiery flames; ​​​​​​​its wheels were burning fire.

 

Daniel 7:22

until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High, and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom.

 

Daniel 7:27

​​​​​​​​And the kingdom and the dominion ​​​​​​​and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven ​​​​​​​shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; ​​​​​​​their kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, ​​​​​​​and all dominions shall serve and obey them.

 

Daniel 12:2

And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

20:5

5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.

Isaiah 26:14

​​​​​​​They are dead, they will not live; ​​​​​​​they are shades, they will not arise; ​​​​​​​to that end you have visited them with destruction ​​​​​​​and wiped out all remembrance of them.

20:6

6 Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.

Exodus 19:6

On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled.

 

Isaiah 26:19

​​​​​​​​Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. ​​​​​​​You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! ​​​​​​​For your dew is a dew of light, ​​​​​​​and the earth will give birth to the dead.

20:8

The Defeat of Satan

 

7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison

 

8 and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.

Ezekiel 38:2

Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him

 

Ezekiel 39:1

And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

 

Ezekiel 39:6

I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

20:9

9 And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them,

 

10 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Deuteronomy 23:14

Because the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and to give up your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy, so that he may not see anything indecent among you and turn away from you.

 

II Kings 1:9-12

Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty men with his fifty. He went up to Elijah, who was sitting on the top of a hill, and said to him, “O man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” 10 But Elijah answered the captain of fifty, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty.” Then fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 11 Again the king sent to him another captain of fifty men with his fifty. And he answered and said to him, “O man of God, this is the king's order, ‘Come down quickly!’” 12 But Elijah answered them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty.” Then the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.

 

Ezekiel 38:22

With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.

 

Ezekiel 39:6

I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

20:11

Judgment Before the Great White Throne

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.

Daniel 2:35

Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

20:12

12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.

 

Exodus 32:32-33

But now, if you will forgive their sin-but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written.” 33 But the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book.

 

Psalm 62:12

and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. ​​​​​​​For you will render to a man ​​​​​​​according to his work. ​​​

 

Psalm 69:28

​​​​​​​​Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; ​​​​​​​let them not be enrolled among the righteous.

 

Daniel 7:10

​​​​​​​​A stream of fire issued ​​​​​​​and came out from before him; ​​​​​​​a thousand thousands served him, ​​​​​​​and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him; ​​​​​​​the court sat in judgment, ​​​​​​​and the books were opened.

20:15

13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.

 

14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

 

15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Exodus 32:32-33

But now, if you will forgive their sin-but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written.” 33 But the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book.

 

Daniel 12:1

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it.

 

The New Heaven and the New Earth | The New Jerusalem

 

21:1

 

The New Heaven and the New Earth

 

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

 

2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Isaiah 65:17

For behold, I create new heavens ​​​​​​​and a new earth, ​​​​​​​and the former things shall not be remembered ​​​​​​​or come into mind.

 

Isaiah 66:22

For as the new heavens and the new earth ​​​​​​​that I make ​​​​​​​shall remain before me, says the LORD, ​​​​​​​so shall your offspring and your name remain.

21:3

3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

Leviticus 26:11-12

I will make my dwelling among you, and my soul shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be my people.

 

Ezekiel 37:27

My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

21:4

4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

 

5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

 

6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.

 

7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

 

8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Isaiah 25:8

​​​​​​​​He will swallow up death forever; ​​​​​​​and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, ​​​​​​​and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, ​​​​​​​for the LORD has spoken.

 

Isaiah 35:10

​​​​​​​​And the ransomed of the LORD shall return ​​​​​​​and come to Zion with singing; ​​​​​​​everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; ​​​​​​​they shall obtain gladness and joy, ​​​​​​​and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

 

Isaiah 51:11

​​​​​​​​And the ransomed of the LORD shall return ​​​​​​​and come to Zion with singing; ​​​​​​​everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; ​​​​​​​they shall obtain gladness and joy, ​​​​​​​and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. ​​​

 

Isaiah 65:19

​​​​​​​​I will rejoice in Jerusalem ​​​​​​​and be glad in my people; ​​​​​​​no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping ​​​​​​​and the cry of distress.

21:9

 

The New Jerusalem

 

9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.”

Leviticus 26:21

Then if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will continue striking you, sevenfold for your sins.

 

21:10

10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God,

Ezekiel 40:2

In visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel, and set me down on a very high mountain, on which was a structure like a city to the south.

21:11

11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

Isaiah 60:1-2

​​​​​​​​Arise, shine, for your light has come, ​​​​​​​and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. ​​​ 2 ​​​​​​​​For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, ​​​​​​​and thick darkness the peoples; ​​​​​​​but the LORD will arise upon you, ​​​​​​​and his glory will be seen upon you.

 

Ezekiel 43:2

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory.

21:12-13

12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed-

 

13 on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates.

 

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Ezekiel 48:31-34

three gates, the gate of Reuben, the gate of Judah, and the gate of Levi, the gates of the city being named after the tribes of Israel. 32 On the east side, which is to be 4,500 cubits, three gates, the gate of Joseph, the gate of Benjamin, and the gate of Dan. 33 On the south side, which is to be 4,500 cubits by measure, three gates, the gate of Simeon, the gate of Issachar, and the gate of Zebulun. 34 On the west side, which is to be 4,500 cubits, three gates, the gate of Gad, the gate of Asher, and the gate of Naphtali.

21:15

15 And the one who spoke with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls.

 

16 The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its width. And he measured the city with his rod, 12,000 stadia. Its length and width and height are equal.

 

17 He also measured its wall, 144 cubits by human measurement, which is also an angel's measurement.

 

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, clear as glass.

Ezekiel 40:3

When he brought me there, behold, there was a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring reed in his hand. And he was standing in the gateway.

 

Ezekiel 40:5

And behold, there was a wall all around the outside of the temple area, and the length of the measuring reed in the man's hand was six long cubits, each being a cubit and a handbreadth in length. So he measured the thickness of the wall, one reed; and the height, one reed.

21:19-20

19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,

 

20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.

 

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass.

 

22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.

Exodus 28:17-20

You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle shall be the first row; 18 and the second row an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond; 19 and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; 20 and the fourth row a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They shall be set in gold filigree.

 

Isaiah 54:11-12

O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted, ​​​​​​​behold, I will set your stones in antimony, ​​​​​​​and lay your foundations with sapphires. ​​​ 12 ​​​​​​​​I will make your pinnacles of agate, ​​​​​​​your gates of carbuncles, ​​​​​​​and all your wall of precious stones.

21:23

23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.

Isaiah 60:19-20

The sun shall be no more ​​​​​​​your light by day, ​​​​​​​nor for brightness shall the moon ​​​​​​​give you light; ​​​​​​​but the LORD will be your everlasting light, ​​​​​​​and your God will be your glory. ​​​ 20 ​​​​​​​​Your sun shall no more go down, ​​​​​​​nor your moon withdraw itself; ​​​​​​​for the LORD will be your everlasting light, ​​​​​​​and your days of mourning shall be ended.

21:24

24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it,
