1 (and so are the souls who live in my Will: they are the new heavens, the new suns, the new earth, all flowery – even more, more varied with beauty and enchantment.”)
I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem, 3 coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race. He will dwell with them and they will be his people 4 and God himself will always be with them (as their God).
3 ( so do these heavens, stretched out in man, point out that he is Our dwelling)
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, (for) the old order has passed away.”

The victor 7 will inherit these gifts, and I shall be his God, and he will be my son.
7 (the most beautiful inheritance We could give him. It came out of Our inmost womb, bringing with Itself a share of all Our goods, to let the creature inherit them, and to form him as all beautiful and holy, in the likeness of the One who had created him.)
