Bible: Isa. 65:20-23; 66:20-24
65:20 Never again will one of her infants live just a few days 1
or an old man die before his time. 2
Indeed, no one will die before the age of a hundred, 3
anyone who fails to reach 4 the age of a hundred will be considered cursed.
65:21 They will build houses and live in them;
they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
65:22 No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, 5
or plant a vineyard only to have another eat its fruit, 6
for my people will live as long as trees, 7
and my chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. 8
65:23 They will not work in vain,
or give birth to children that will experience disaster. 9
and their descendants. 10
1:20 God said, “Let the water swarm with swarms 1 of living creatures and let birds fly 2 above the earth across the expanse of the sky.” 1:21 God created the great sea creatures 3 and every living and moving thing with which the water swarmed, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. God saw that it was good. 1:22 God blessed them 4 and said, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.” 5 1:23 There was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day.
1:24 God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” 6 It was so.
