At this I awoke and looked, and my sleep was pleasant to me.
271"Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when 2I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with 3the seed of man and the seed of beast.
And it shall come to pass that 4as I have watched over them 5to pluck up and break down, to overthrow, destroy, and bring harm, 6so I will watch over them 7to build and to plant, declares the LORD.
In those days they shall no longer say: 8"'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.'
309But everyone shall die for his own sin. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.
3110"Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make 11a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah,
not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when 12I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, 13though I was their husband, declares the LORD.
3314But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: 15I will put my law within them, and I will write it 16on their hearts. 17And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,'18for they shall all know me, 19from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For 20I will forgive their iniquity, and 21I will remember their sin no more."
Thus says the LORD, who 22gives the sun for light by day and 23the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- 24the LORD of hosts is his name:
3625"If this fixed order departs from before me, declares the LORD, then shall the offspring of Israel cease from being a nation before me forever."
