All Things New

"And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Rev. 21:5)

On the auspicious occasion of having a new Ship to play with, what other quotations from Holy Writ come to mind? Feel free to use the KJV, NRSV, NIV, ESV, whatever, including the OTTOMHV (off the top of my head version).

    A modified Deuteronomy 13:6-8a:
    If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and [use other emoticons]” ([emoticons] that neither you nor your ancestors have known, [emoticons] of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to them or listen to them.

  • Acts 27:44 (KJV) seems to sum up our obsolete software and transition very well:
