12. The New Heaven and the New Earth
a. The First Heaven and the First Earth
Having Passed Away and the Sea Being No More
1 And I saw a 1anew heaven and a new earth; for the 2bfirst heaven and the first earth passed away, and the 3sea is no more.
b. New Jerusalem
Coming Down to
the New Earth
2 And I saw the aholy city, 1bNew Jerusalem, 2coming down out of heaven from God, cprepared as a 3dbride adorned for her ehusband.
c. The Peoples on the New Earth
3 And I heard a aloud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the 1btabernacle of God is with men, and He will ctabernacle with them, and dthey will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 And He will 1awipe away every tear from their eyes; and 2bdeath will be no more, nor will there be csorrow or crying or pain anymore; for the 3dformer things have passed away.
d. The Sons of God in Eternity
5 And He awho sits on the throne said, Behold, I make all things bnew. And He said, Write, for these words are cfaithful and true.
6 And He said to me, 1They have come to pass. I am the aAlpha and the Omega, the bBeginning and the End. I will give to him who cthirsts from the dspring of the ewater of life freely.
7 He who 1aovercomes will inherit these things, and bI will be God to him, and he will be a 2cson to Me.
e. The Perished in the Lake of Fire
8 But the cowardly and unbelieving and aabominable and murderers and bfornicators and sorcerers and idolaters and all the 1false, their part will be in the 2clake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the dsecond death.
