The Wolf and Lamb Together
For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered
or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create
Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.
I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be
heard in it, or the cry of distress.
No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days, or an old person who does
not live out a lifetime; for one who dies at a hundred years will be considered a youth, and
one who falls short of a hundred will be considered accursed.
They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the
days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
They shall not labor in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they shall be offspring blessed
by the Lord--and their descendants as well. Before they call I will answer, while they are yet
speaking I will hear.
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like an ox; but the
serpent--its food shall be dust! They shall not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain,
says the Lord.
