Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.
and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."
There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him;
Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
And the LORD will utterly destroy The tongue of the Sea of Egypt; And He will wave His hand over the River With His scorching wind; And He will strike it into seven streams And make men walk over dry-shod.
He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken.
