"For I will create a new heaven and a new earth; the past events will not be remembered or come to mind.
Then be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I will create Jerusalem to be a joy, and its people to be a delight.
I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people. The sound of weeping and crying will no longer be heard in her.
In her, a nursing infant will no longer live only a few days,a or an old man not live out his days. Indeed, the youth will die at a hundred years, and the one who misses a hundred years will be cursed.
People will build houses and live [in them]; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
They will not build and others live [in them]; they will not plant and others eat. For My people's lives will be like the lifetime of a tree. My chosen ones will fully enjoy the work of their hands.
They will not labor without success or bear children [destined] for disaster, for they will be a people blessed by the Lord along with their descendants.
Even before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear.
The wolf and the lamb will feed together,b and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but the serpent's food will be dust! They will not do what is evil or destroy on My entire holy mountain," says the Lord.
