Chapter 7 Verse 17 (NIV)
Home New American Standard Bible God's WordTM 中文 Espaņol Deutsch
17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
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.
