New Heavens and a New Earth

17 "For behold, I create 1new heavens and a new earth ; And the 2former things will not be remembered or come to amind. 18 "But be 3glad and rejoice forever in what I create ; For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing And her people for gladness. 19 "I will also 4rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people ; And there will no longer be heard in her The voice of 5weeping and the sound of crying. 20 "No longer will there be bin it an infant who lives but a few days, Or an old man who does 6not clive out his days ; For the youth will die at the age of one hundred And the d7one who does not reach the age of one hundred Will be thought accursed. 21 "They will 8build houses and inhabit them; They will also 9plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 "They will not build and 10another inhabit, They will not plant and another eat ; For 11as the elifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people, And My chosen ones will 12wear out the work of their hands. 23 "They will 13not labor in vain, Or bear children for calamity ; For they are the f14offspring of those blessed by the LORD, And their descendants with them. 24 "It will also come to pass that before they call, I will 15answer ; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. 25 "The 16wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the 17lion will eat straw like the ox ; and 18dust will be the serpent's food. They will 19do no evil or harm in all My 20holy mountain," says the LORD.
