Behold, the former things have come to pass,
    (A)and new things I now declare;
before they spring forth
    I tell you of them.”

    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
(B)I will make a way in the wilderness
    (C)and rivers in the desert.

    and will you not declare it?
From this time forth (A)I announce to you new things,
    hidden things that you have not known.

Thus says the Lord:
(A)“As the new wine is found in the cluster,
    and they say, ‘Do not destroy it,
    for there is a blessing in it,’
so I will do for my servants' sake,
    (B)and not destroy them all.
(C)I will bring forth offspring from Jacob,
    and from Judah possessors of my mountains;
my chosen shall possess it,
    and my servants shall dwell there.
10 (D)Sharon shall become a pasture for flocks,
    and (E)the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down,
    for my people (F)who have sought me.

New Heavens and a New Earth

17 “For behold, (A)I create new heavens
    and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
    or come into mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever
    in that which I create;
for behold, (B)I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
    and her people to be a gladness.
19 (C)I will rejoice in Jerusalem
    and be glad in my people;
(D)no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
    and the cry of distress.
20 No more shall there be in it
    an infant who lives but a few days,
    or an old man who does not fill out his days,
for (E)the young man shall die a hundred years old,
    and (F)the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 (G)They shall build houses and inhabit them;
    they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 (H)They shall not build and another inhabit;
    they shall not plant and another eat;
(I)for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
    and my chosen shall long enjoy[a] the work of their hands.
23 (J)They shall not labor in vain
    (K)or bear children for calamity,[b]
for (L)they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,
    and their descendants with them.
24 (M)Before they call I will answer;
    (N)while they are yet speaking I will hear.
25 (O)The wolf and the lamb shall graze together;
    the lion shall eat straw like the ox,
    and (P)dust shall be the serpent's food.
(Q)They shall not hurt or destroy
    in all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.

The New Covenant

31 (A)“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make (B)a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when (C)I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, (D)though I was their husband, declares the Lord. 33 (E)For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: (F)I will put my law within them, and I will write it (G)on their hearts. (H)And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ (I)for they shall all know me, (J)from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For (K)I will forgive their iniquity, and (L)I will remember their sin no more.”

18 And when they come there, (A)they will remove from it all its (B)detestable things and all its abominations. 19 (C)And I will give them one heart, and (D)a new spirit I will put within them. (E)I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh (F)and give them a heart of flesh, 20 (G)that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them.

The New Heaven and the New Earth

21 Then I saw (A)a new heaven and a new earth, for (B)the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw (C)the holy city, (D)new Jerusalem, (E)coming down out of heaven from God, (F)prepared (G)as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, (H)the dwelling place[a] of God is with man. He will (I)dwell with them, and they will be his people,[b] and God himself will be with them as their God.[c] (J)He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and (K)death shall be no more, (L)neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

And (M)he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I (N)am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for (O)these words are trustworthy and true.”
