Revelation 21:8-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

But as for cowards,[a] the unfaithful, the depraved, murderers, the unchaste, sorcerers, idol-worshipers, and deceivers of every sort, their lot is in the burning pool of fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

The New Jerusalem.[b] One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come here. I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”[c] 10 He took me in spirit to a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.
