and no one will even think about the old ones anymore.
And look! I will create Jerusalem as a place of happiness.
Her people will be a source of joy.
and delight in my people.
And the sound of weeping and crying
will be heard in it no more.
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!
and eat the fruit of their own vineyards.
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.
and their children will not be doomed to misfortune.
For they are people blessed by the Lord,
and their children, too, will be blessed.
While they are still talking about their needs,
I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
The lion will eat hay like a cow.
But the snakes will eat dust.
In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain.
I, the Lord, have spoken!”
