I'm about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things won't be remembered, nor will they come to mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating, for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight. 19 I'll rejoice over Jerusalem, and take delight in my people; no longer will the sound of weeping be heard in it, nor the cry of distress.
