17 I am creating new heavens and a new earth; everything of the past will be forgotten. 18 Celebrate and be glad forever! I am creating a Jerusalem, full of happy people. 19 I will celebrate with Jerusalem and all of its people; there will be no more crying or sorrow in that city.
20 No child will die in infancy; everyone will live to a ripe old age. Anyone a hundred years old will be considered young, and to die younger than that will be considered a curse.
21 My people will live in the houses they build; they will enjoy grapes from their own vineyards. 22 No one will take away their homes or vineyards. My chosen people will live to be as old as trees, and they will enjoy what they have earned. 23 Their work won’t be wasted, and their children won’t die of dreadful diseases.[a] I will bless their children and their grandchildren. 24 I will answer their prayers before they finish praying.
25 Wolves and lambs will graze together; lions and oxen will feed on straw. Snakes will eat only dirt! They won’t bite or harm anyone on my holy mountain. I, the Lord, have spoken!
