"The time is 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 forefathers3 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 a man teach9 his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, '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."
