He will swallow up death forever!
The Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears
from off all faces.
He will take the reproach of his people
away from off all the earth,
for Yahweh has spoken it. Bible other translations

“He will swallow up death.” The Hebrew uses the prophetic perfect to guarantee the promise. It reads, “He has swallowed up death,” even though His promise will be fulfilled in the future. [For more on the prophetic perfect, see commentary on Ephesians 2:6].
