Isaiah 51:3

Context

51:3 Certainly the Lord will console Zion;

he will console all her ruins.

He will make her wilderness like Eden,

her desert like the Garden of the Lord.

Happiness and joy will be restored to 1  her,

thanksgiving and the sound of music.

Ezekiel 36:35

Context
36:35 They will say, “This desolate land has become like the garden of Eden; the ruined, desolate, and destroyed cities are now fortified and inhabited.”

Luke 23:43

Context
23:43 And Jesus 2  said to him, “I tell you the truth, 3  today 4  you will be with me in paradise.” 5 

1 tn Heb “found in” (so NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV).

2 tn Grk “he.”

3 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

4 sn Jesus gives more than the criminal asked for, because the blessing will come today, not in the future. He will be among the righteous. See the note on today in 2:11.

5 sn In the NT, paradise is mentioned three times. Here it refers to the abode of the righteous dead. In Rev 2:7 it refers to the restoration of Edenic paradise predicted in Isa 51:3 and Ezek 36:35. In 2 Cor 12:4 it probably refers to the “third heaven” (2 Cor 12:2) as the place where God dwells.
