Isaiah 65:17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

A World Renewed

17 [a]See, I am creating new heavens
    and a new earth;
The former things shall not be remembered
    nor come to mind.

Footnotes:

  1. 65:17–18 The new creation (cf. 66:22) is described with apocalyptic exuberance: long life, material prosperity, and so forth. As the former events in 43:18 are to be forgotten, so also the new creation wipes out memory of the first creation.
