Psalm 100; Isaiah 65:17–25; Matthew 19:28–30

His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

A Psalm for ogiving thanks.

100  pMake a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

qServe the Lord with gladness!

rCome into his presence with singing!

Know that sthe Lord, he is God!

It is he who tmade us, and uwe are his;1

we are his vpeople, and wthe sheep of his pasture.

xEnter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his ycourts with praise!

Give thanks to him; zbless his name!

aFor the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his bfaithfulness to all generations.


New Heavens and a New Earth

17  For behold, kI create new heavens

and a new earth,

and the former things shall not be remembered

or come into mind.

18  But be glad and rejoice forever

in that which I create;

for behold, lI create Jerusalem to be a joy,

and her people to be a gladness.

19  mI will rejoice in Jerusalem

and be glad in my people;

nno more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping

and the cry of distress.

20  No more shall there be in it

an infant who lives but a few days,

or an old man who does not fill out his days,

for othe young man shall die a hundred years old,

and pthe sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.

21  qThey shall build houses and inhabit them;

they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

22  qThey shall not build and another inhabit;

they shall not plant and another eat;

rfor like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,

and my chosen shall long enjoy1 the work of their hands.

23  sThey shall not labor in vain

tor bear children for calamity,2

for uthey shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,

and their descendants with them.

24  vBefore they call I will answer;

wwhile they are yet speaking I will hear.

25  xThe wolf and the lamb shall graze together;

the lion shall eat straw like the ox,

and ydust shall be the serpent’s food.

zThey shall not hurt or destroy

in all my holy mountain,

says the Lord.


28 Jesus said to them, Truly, I say to you, in the new world,1 zwhen the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me awill also sit on twelve thrones, bjudging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 cAnd everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold2 and will dinherit eternal life. 30 But emany who are ffirst will be last, and the last first.
