Bible: Isa 65:17-20

65:17 For look, I am ready to create

new heavens and a new earth! 1 

The former ones 2  will not be remembered;

no one will think about them anymore. 3 

65:18 But be happy and rejoice forevermore

over what I am about to create!

For look, I am ready to create Jerusalem 4  to be a source of joy, 5 

and her people to be a source of happiness. 6 

65:19 Jerusalem will bring me joy,

and my people will bring me happiness. 7 

The sound of weeping or cries of sorrow

will never be heard in her again.

65:20 Never again will one of her infants live just a few days 8 

or an old man die before his time. 9 

Indeed, no one will die before the age of a hundred, 10 

anyone who fails to reach 11  the age of a hundred will be considered cursed.
