Judgment Before the Great White Throne

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence (A)earth and sky fled away, and (B)no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and (C)books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is (D)the book of life. And (E)the dead were judged by what was written in the books, (F)according to what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, (G)Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, (H)according to what they had done. 14 Then (I)Death and Hades (J)were thrown into the lake of fire. This is (K)the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, (L)he was thrown into the lake of fire.

The New Heaven and the New Earth

21 Then I saw (M)a new heaven and a new earth, for (N)the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw (O)the holy city, (P)new Jerusalem, (Q)coming down out of heaven from God, (R)prepared (S)as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, (T)the dwelling place[a] of God is with man. He will (U)dwell with them, and they will be his people,[b] and God himself will be with them as their God.[c] (V)He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and (W)death shall be no more, (X)neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

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