Isaiah 65:17–25

The Glorious New Creation

17 “For behold, I create fnew heavens and a new earth;

And the former shall not be remembered or 6come to mind.

18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create;

For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing,

And her people a joy.

19 gI will rejoice in Jerusalem,

And joy in My people;

The hvoice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her,

Nor the voice of crying.

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,

iBut the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.

21 jThey 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 kanother eat;

For las the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people,

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

23 They shall not labor in vain,

nNor bring forth children for trouble;

For othey shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord,

And their offspring with them.

24 “It shall come to pass

That pbefore they call, I will answer;

And while they are still speaking, I will qhear.

25 The rwolf and the lamb shall feed together,

The lion shall eat straw like the ox,

sAnd dust shall be the serpent’s food.

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,”

Says the Lord.
