Isaiah 66:22-24 Comparing NEB, CEV, NIV Holman Rainbow SB

Isaiah 66:22-24 NEB For, as the new heavens and the new earth which I am making shall endure in my sight, says the LORD, so shall your race and your name endure;

and month by month at the new moon, week by week on the sabbath, all mankind shall come to bow down before me, says the LORD;

and they shall come out and see the dead bodies of those who have rebelled against me; their worm shall not die nor their fire be quenched, and they shall be abhorred by all mankind.

Revelation 21:1-4 NEB THEN SAW a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and

the first earth had vanished, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like

a bride adorned for her husband. heard a loud voice proclaiming from the throne: Now at last God has his dwelling among men! He will dwell among them and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be an end to death, and to mourning and crying and pain; for the old order has passed away!’

Revelation 22:1-5 NEB Then he showed me the river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal,

flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the city’s street. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, which yields twelve crops of fruit, one for each month of the year; the leaves of the trees serve for the healing of the nations. Every accursed thing shall disappear.

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants shall worship him; they shall see him face to face, and bear his name on their foreheads.

There shall be no more night, nor will they need the light of lamp or sun,

for the Lord God will give them light; and they shall reign for evermore.

Isaiah 66:22-24 CEV also promise that you will always have descendants and will never be forgotten, just as the new heavens and the new earth that create will last forever.

On the first day of each month and each Sabbath, everyone will worship me. I, the Lord, have spoken.

My people will go out and look at the dead bodies of those who turned against me. The worms there never die, the fire never stops burning, and the sight of those bodies will be disgusting to everyone.

The New Heaven and the Mew Earth

Revelation 21:1-4 CEV saw a new heaven and a new earth. The first heaven and the first earth had disappeared, and so had the sea.

He will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain. These things of the past are gone forever.

Revelation 22:1-5 CEV The angel showed me a river that was crystal clear, and its waters gave life. The river came from the throne where God and the Lamb were seated.

Then it flowed down the middle of the city’s main street. On each side of the river are trees that grow a different kind of fruit each month of the year. The fruit gives life, and the leaves are used as medicine to heal the nations.

God’s curse will no longer be on the people of that city. He and the Lamb will be seated there on their thrones, and its people will worship God

and will see him face to face. God’s name will be written on the foreheads of the people.

Never again will night appear, and no one who lives there will ever need a lamp or the sun. The Lord God will be their light, and they will rule forever.

Isaiah 66:22-24 NIV Holman Rainbow SB “As the new heavens and the new earth that make will endure before me,” declares the LORD, “so will your name and descendants endure.

From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the LORD.

The River of life and the tree of life

down the middle of the great street of the city. On each size of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
