"The New Jerusalem"

 

Will the New Jerusalem orbit or land?

 

(Note: the illustrations below show both a cube and a pyramid. We don’t know the shape. Both shapes seem to fit in the description, although the drawings are obviously not to scale):

 

 

Many scholars say that the New Jerusalem will hover over the Earth and not land. But if the verse below is making reference to the New Jerusalem (which I think it is!), then the Bible says it will touch the Earth!

 

The verse is Isaiah 26:5:

 

KJV:

For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

 

New KJV:

For He brings down those who dwell on high,

      The lofty city;

      He lays it low,

      He lays it low to the ground,

      He brings it down to the dust.

      

Young’s Literal Translation:

For He bowed down the dwellers on high, A city set on high He maketh low, He maketh it low unto the earth, He causeth it to come unto the dust,

 

Darby Translation:

For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low, he layeth it low to the ground, he bringeth it even to the dust.

 

YSIC,
