Then I saw 1a new heaven and a new earth, for 2the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
And I saw 3the holy city, 4new Jerusalem, 5coming down out of heaven from God, 6prepared 7as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, 8the dwelling placea of God is with man. He will 9dwell with them, and they will be his people,b and God himself will be with them as their God.c
410He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and 11death shall be no more, 12neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."
