Isaiah 65:17-19

New Heavens and a New Earth

17 "For behold, k 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, l I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
and her people to be a gladness.
19 m I will rejoice in Jerusalem
and be glad in my people;
n no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
and the cry of distress.
