ISAIAH 65:17-25New Heavens and a New Earth17 “For behold, I create new heavensand a new earth,and the former things shall not be rememberedor come into mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice foreverin that which I create;for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,and her people to be a gladness. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalemand be glad in my people;no more shall be heard in it the sound of weepingand the cry of distress. 20 No more shall there be in itan infant who lives but a few days,or an old man who does not fill out his days,for the young man shall die a hundred years old,and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 They shall build houses and inhabit them;they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 They shall not build and another inhabit;they shall not plant and another eat;for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labor in vainor bear children for calamity,for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,and their descendants with them. 24 Before they call I will answer;while they are yet speaking I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together;the lion shall eat straw like the ox,and dust shall be the serpent’s food.They shall not hurt or destroyin all my holy mountain,”
