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:
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.
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,
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.
