Verse 17 (NASB)
Home New International Version God's WordTM 中文 Español Deutsch
17. for the Lamb in the center of the throne shall be their shepherd, and shall guide them to springs of the water of life; and God shall wipe every tear from their eyes."
The water of life is a whole topic unto itself. We find it
Mercifully, the remembrances of bad times will be removed from their minds. There will be no tears in the new heaven, Revelation 21:4 . The Lord God will throw a lavish banquet for all peoples (the marriage supper), Isaiah 25:6-12 . Isaiah also reminds us what it will be like in the new heavens, Isaiah 65:17-19-25 , where there will be no voice of weeping and no sound of crying. JOY replaces the sorrow and weeping, Psalm 16:5-11 .
