And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The first ones have passed away, and the sea is no more. I saw the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. Prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. A loud voice said: behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away. He who sits on the throne said: "Behold, I am making all things new. Write, for these words are true.”
