because the Lord God Almighty
and the Lamb are its temple.
The city does not need the sun
or the moon to shine on it,
for the glory of God gives it light,
and the Lamb is its lamp.
The nations will walk by its light,
and the kings of the earth
will bring their splendor into it.
On no day will its gates ever be shut,
for there will be no night there.
The glory and honor of the nations
will be brought into it.
Nothing impure will ever enter it,
nor will anyone who does
what is shameful or deceitful,
but only those whose names
are written in the Lamb's book of life
~ Revelation 21
