"With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:3,4
