Example of Chiasm

This simple CHIASM is the last literary unit in the Bible (although verse 21 is the second part of an inclusio).

1) The FIRST/LAST rule, that is the elements A and A′, is a call for those who hear to Come. (Many times in the Bible we have seen the people refuse to listen.) For those that do hear, the water of life is available without cost.

2) Based on the CENTER POINT in this chiasm, it would be wise not to add or take away any part of this book of prophecy. That is emphatic!
