"For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Young's Literal Translation
For, lo, I am creating new heavens, and a new earth, And the former things are not remembered, Nor do they ascend on the heart.
Isaiah 65:17 Parallel

I create new heavens and a new earth - This has been variously understood. Some Jews and some Christians understand it literally.

I think it refers to the full conversion of the Jews ultimately; and primarily to the deliverance from the Babylonish captivity.

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.
Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
