Eternally Dying Worms

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says YHWH.  And they shall go forth, and look upon the dead bodies of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”  Isaiah 66:23-24

This is after the great battle of God, referred to in Revelation:

“Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord God who judged her.”  Revelation 18:8

The saints rejoice:

“And a second time they say, Hallelujah. And her smoke goes up for ever and ever.”  Revelation 19:3

Forever and ever is not a good translation.  For ages and ages is better.
