Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it were a jasper stone. Clear as crystal. It had a great and high wall, twelve gates, and on them twelve angels; and the names of the twelve tribes of Israel written on them. Three gates of the morning, three gates of midnight, three gates of midday, three gates of the evening. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb. And the angel had a measuring rod to measure the city. The city is square, and its length is as great as its width. He measured twelve thousand feet of paths. Its wall a hundred and forty cubits. The wall was jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass.
