“And had a wall great and high, and had twelue gates, and at the gates twelue Angels, & names written thereon, which are the names of the twelue tribes of the children of Israel.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. And there came vnto me one of the seuen Angels, which had the seuen vials full of the seuen last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the Bride, the Lambes wife. 10. And he caried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountaine, and shewed me that great citie, the holy Hierusalem, descending out of heauen from God, 11. Hauing the glory of God: and her light was like vnto a stone most precious; euen like a iasper stone, cleare as christal, 12. And had a wall great and high, and had twelue gates, and at the gates twelue Angels, & names written thereon, which are the names of the twelue tribes of the children of Israel. 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 citie had twelue foundations, and in them the names of the twelue Apostles of the Lambe. 15. And hee that talked with mee, had a golden reede to measure the citie, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
