It will not be like the covenant16 I made with their forefathers17 when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt,18 because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband19 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 minds20 and write it on their hearts.21 I will be their God, and they will be my people.22
No longer will a man teach23 his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know24 me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive25 their wickedness and will remember their sins26 no more."
