That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless
himself in the God of truth; And he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by
the God of truth; Because the former troubles are forgotten, And because they are hid from mine eyes. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: And the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
