Isaiah 65:17-25

User Rating: / 2

 17 "Behold, I will create
       new heavens and a new earth.
       The former things will not be remembered,
       nor will they come to mind.

 18 But be glad and rejoice forever
       in what I will create,
       for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
       and its people a joy.

 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem
       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;
       he who dies at a hundred
       will be thought a mere youth;
       he 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 works of their hands.

 23 They will not toil in vain
       or bear children doomed to misfortune;
       for they will be a people blessed by the LORD,
       they and their descendants with them.

 24 Before they call I will answer;
       while they are still speaking I will hear.

 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
       and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
       but dust will be the serpent's food.
       They will neither harm nor destroy
       on all my holy mountain,"
       says the LORD.
