for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight

and its people a joy.

and take delight in my people;

the sound of weeping and of crying

will be heard in it no more.

20 “Never again will there be in it

an infant who lives but a few days,

or an old man who does not live out his years;

the one who dies at a hundred

will be thought a mere child;

the one who fails to reach a hundred

will be considered accursed.

21 They will build houses and dwell in them;

they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Isaiah 65:17–21 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

For, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people:

And the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days,

Nor an old man that hath not filled his days:

For the child shall die an hundred years old;

But the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them;

And they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem

and delight in my people.

And the sound of weeping and crying

will be heard in it no more.

20 “No longer will babies die when only a few days old.

No longer will adults die before they have lived a full life.

No longer will people be considered old at one hundred!

Only the cursed will die that young!

21 In those days people will live in the houses they build

and eat the fruit of their own vineyards.

They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

I will make a Jerusalem that is full of joy,

and I will make her people a delight.

19 Then I will rejoice over Jerusalem

and be delighted with my people.

There will never again be heard in that city

the sounds of crying and sadness.

20 There will never be a baby from that city

who lives only a few days.

And there will never be an older person

who doesn’t have a long life.

Those who plant vineyards will get to eat their grapes.

or an old person who does not live out a lifetime;

for one who dies at a hundred years will be considered a youth,

and one who falls short of a hundred will be considered accursed.

they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

and they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Isaiah 65:17–21 — New International Reader’s Version (NIrV)

because of what I will create.

I will cause others to take delight in Jerusalem.

They will be filled with joy

when they see its people.

19 And I will be full of joy because of Jerusalem.

I will take delight in my people.

Sobbing and crying

will not be heard there anymore.

20 “Babies in Jerusalem will no longer

live only a few days.

Old people will not fail

to live for a very long time.

Those who live to the age of 100

will be thought of as still being young when they die.

Those who die before they are 100

will be considered as having been under God’s curse.

21 My people will build houses and live in them.

They will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing

And her people for gladness.

19 “I will also rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people;

And there will no longer be heard in her

The voice of weeping and the sound of crying.

20 No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days,

Or an old man who does not live out his days;

For the youth will die at the age of one hundred

And the one who does not reach the age of one hundred

Will be thought accursed.

They will also plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
