there shall be no more death ] More exactly, death shall be no more, having been destroyed in the Lake of Fire, Rev 20:14: not that the personification is put forward here.
for the former things are passed away ] for should probably be omitted; and the word for “former” is literally, first.

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges is a biblical commentary set published in parts by Cambridge University Press from 1882 onwards. Anglican bishop John Perowne was the general editor. The first section published was written by theologian Thomas Kelly Cheyne and covered the Book of Micah.
Perowne exercised limited editorial control over the writers of individual commentaries: his aim was "to leave each contributor to the unfettered exercise of his own judgment".
