Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven.
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word which was preached to you.
For I have said, “Lovingkindness will be built up forever;
In the heavens You will establish Your faithfulness.”
Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.
The sum of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.
Of old I have known from Your testimonies
That You have founded them forever.
For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
