"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant1 with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant2 I made with their ancestors3 when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt,4 because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband5 toa them,b " declares the LORD.
"This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds6 and write it on their hearts.7 I will be their God, and they will be my people.834
No longer will they teach9 their neighbors, or say to one another, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know10 me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive11 their wickedness and will remember their sins12 no more."
