Isaiah 65:20–22 — The New International Version (NIV)

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.

22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them,

or plant and others eat.

For as the days of a tree,

so will be the days of my people;

my chosen ones will long enjoy

the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — English Standard Version (ESV)

20 No more shall there be in it

an 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.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

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.

22 They shall not build, and another inhabit;

They shall not plant, and another eat:

For as the days of a tree are the days of my people,

And mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — New Living Translation (NLT)

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.

22 Unlike the past, invaders will not take their houses

and confiscate their vineyards.

For my people will live as long as trees,

and my chosen ones will have time to enjoy their hard-won gains.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

20 “No more shall an infant from there live but a few days,

Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days;

For the child shall die one hundred years old,

But the sinner being one 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 as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people,

And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — New Century Version (NCV)

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.

A person who lives a hundred years will be called young,

and a person who dies before he is a hundred will be thought of as a sinner.

21 In that city those who build houses will live there.

Those who plant vineyards will get to eat their grapes.

22 No more will one person build a house and someone else live there.

One person will not plant a garden and someone else eat its fruit.

My people will live a long time,

as trees live long.

My chosen people will live there

and enjoy the things they make.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — American Standard Version (ASV 1901)

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 a hundred years old, and the sinner being a 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. 22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — 1890 Darby Bible (DARBY)

20 There shall be no more thenceforth an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not completed his days; for the youth shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof: 22 they shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

20 There will no longer be an infant who lives for only a few days 

or an old man who doesn’t live a long life. 

Whoever lives to be a hundred years old will be thought of as young. 

Whoever dies before he is a hundred years old will be cursed as a sinner. 

21 They will build houses and live there. 

They will plant vineyards and eat fruit from them. 

22 They will not build homes and have others live there. 

They will not plant and have others eat from it. 

My people will live as long as trees, 

and my chosen ones will enjoy what they’ve done. 

Isaiah 65:20–22 — The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

20 In her, a nursing infant will no longer live

only a few days,

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.

21 People will build houses and live in them;

they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

22 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.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

20 No more shall there be in it

an infant that lives but a few days,

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.

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.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — The Lexham English Bible (LEB)

21 And they shall build houses and inhabit them,

and they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

22 They shall not build and another inhabit;

they shall not plant and another eat.

and my chosen ones shall enjoy the work of their hands.

Isaiah 65:20–22 — New International Reader’s Version (1998) (NIrV)

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.

22 They will no longer build houses

only to have others live in them.

They will no longer plant crops

only to have others eat them.

My people will live to be as old as trees.

My chosen ones will enjoy for a long time

the things they have worked for.
