"In those days people will no longer say, 'The fathers1 have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.'230
Instead, everyone will die for his own sin;3 whoever eats sour grapes--his own teeth will be set on edge.
"The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant4 with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant5 I made with their forefathers6 when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt,7 because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband8 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 minds9 and write it on their hearts.10 I will be their God, and they will be my people.1134
No longer will a man teach12 his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know13 me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive14 their wickedness and will remember their sins15 no more."
