Psalm 30:2-13 and Isaiah 65:17-21
2 I will extol you, Lord, for you have sustained me, and you have not allowed my enemies to delight over me.
3 O Lord my God, I have cried out to you, and you have healed me.
4 Lord, you led my soul away from Hell. You have saved me from those who descend into the pit.
5 Sing a psalm to the Lord, you his saints, and confess with remembrance of his holiness.
6 For wrath is in his indignation, and life is in his will. Toward evening, weeping will linger, and toward morning, gladness.
7 But I have said in my abundance: "I will never be disturbed."
8 O Lord, in your will, you made virtue preferable to beauty for me. You turned your face away from me, and I became disturbed.
9 To you, Lord, I will cry out. And I will make supplication to my God.
10 What use would there be in my blood, if I descend into corruption? Will dust confess to you or announce your truth?
11 The Lord has heard, and he has been merciful to me. The Lord has become my helper.
12 You have turned my mourning into gladness for me. You have cut off my sackcloth, and you have surrounded me with joy.
13 So then, may my glory sing to you, and may I not regret it. O Lord, my God, I will confess to you for eternity.
17 For behold, I create the new heavens and the new earth. And the former things will not be in memory and will not enter into the heart.
18 But you will be glad and exult, even forever, in these things that I create. For behold, I create Jerusalem as an exultation, and its people as a joy.
19 And I will exult in Jerusalem, and I will rejoice in my people. And neither a voice of weeping, nor a voice of outcry, will be heard in her anymore.
20 There will no longer be an infant of only a few days there, nor an elder who does not complete his days. For a mere child dies at a hundred years of age, and a sinner of a hundred years will be accursed.
21 And they will build houses, and will inhabit them. And they will plant vineyards, and will eat their fruits.
