For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.    Isaiah 65:17

"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.   Genesis 1:29
