Isaiah 65:18-19


65:18 But be happy and rejoice forevermore

over what I am about to create!

For look, I am ready to create Jerusalem 1  to be a source of joy, 2 

and her people to be a source of happiness. 3 

65:19 Jerusalem will bring me joy,

and my people will bring me happiness. 4 

The sound of weeping or cries of sorrow

will never be heard in her again.
