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.11
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."
