1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for* the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no sea anymore. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having been prepared as a bride adorned for* her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and he will be residing with them and they will be his people and God will be with them. 4 And he will be wiping-away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no death anymore.
