Can I use "no more, or, nor, neither" in a sentence?

Hello all, could you help me with a question? I saw the Bible says, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:4)

Can I use "no more, or, nor, neither" in a sentence? For example:

1. God's kingdom shall be no more death or sorrow, nor crying, neither pain.

Is it right? How can I revise? what about the following sentences:
2. God's kingdom shall be no more death nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain.
3. God's kingdom shall be no more death neither sorrow, nor crying, nor pain.

    None of these are right. I'd write: In God's kingdom there shall be no more death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain.

    Revelation 21:4, KJV:
    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
