Isaiah 65:17-25

New Heavens and a New Earth

 

17 “See, 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;
the one who dies at a hundred
   will be thought a mere child;
the one who fails to reach[1] 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.
23 They will not labor in vain,
   nor will they 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,
   and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
   on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.

The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times

 

5 Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, 6 “As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”
