"The tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them" (Rev. 21:3)—The word which is here rendered "tabernacle" means literally "tent," but was often used in the more general meaning of "dwelling place." Goodspeed renders: "God's dwelling is with men, and he will live with them;" while Moffatt has: "God's dwelling-place is with men, with men will he dwell."

"The former things are passed away" (Rev. 21:4)—The Twentieth Century New Testament suggests the translation: "The old order has passed away;" while Moffatt has: "The first things have passed away."
