25:6 On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines, of rich food
filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.
And he will destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over
all peoples, the sheet that is spread over all nations; he will
swallow up death forever.
Then the Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces, and the
disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth, for
the lord has spoken.
It will be said on that day, "Lo, this is our God; we have
waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the LORD for
whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his

Those who have clean hands and pure hearts, who do not lift up
their souls to what is false, and do not swear deceitfully.
They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from the
God of their salvation.
Such is the company of those who seek him, who seek the face of

21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven
and first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of
heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "See, the

God; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them;
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things
have passed away."
And the one who was seated on the throne said, "See I am
making all things new." Also he said, "Write this, for
these words are trustworthy and true."
Then he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the

11:32 When Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, she knelt at his
feet and said to him, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother
would not have died."
When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also
weeping, he was greatly disturbed in spirit and deeply moved.
He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him,

So the Jews said, "See how he loved him!"
But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of
the blind man have kept this man from dying?"
Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a
cave, and a stone was lying against it.
Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of
the dead man, said to him, "Lord, already there is a stench
because he has been dead four days."
Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed,
you would see the glory of God?"
So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upward and said,
"Father, I thank you for having heard me.
I knew that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake
of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent
When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus
The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of
cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them,
"Unbind him and let him go."
