A New Covenant

27 "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will 1sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast. 28 "As I have 2watched over them to 3pluck up, to break down, to overthrow, to destroy and to bring disaster, so I will watch over them to 4build and to plant," declares the LORD. 29 "In those days they will not say again, '5The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children's teeth are aset on edge.' 30 "But 6everyone will die for his own iniquity ; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be bset on edge. 31 "7Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a 8new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the 9covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I 10took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My 11covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD. 33 "But 12this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "13I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and 14I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 "They will 15not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all 16know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will 17forgive their iniquity, and their 18sin I will remember no more." 35 Thus says the LORD, Who 19gives the sun for light by day And the cfixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, Who 20stirs up the sea so that its waves roar ; 21The LORD of hosts is His name : 36 "22If dthis fixed order departs From before Me," declares the LORD, "Then the offspring of Israel also will 23cease From being a nation before Me eforever ." 37 Thus says the LORD, "24If the heavens above can be measured And the foundations of the earth searched out below, Then I will also 25cast off all the offspring of Israel For all that they have done," declares the LORD. 38 "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when the 26city will be rebuilt for the LORD from the 27Tower of Hananel to the 28Corner Gate. 39 "The 29measuring line will go out farther straight ahead to the hill Gareb ; then it will turn to Goah. 40 "And 30the whole valley of the dead bodies and of the ashes, and all the fields as far as the brook 31Kidron, to the corner of the 32Horse Gate toward the east, shall be 33holy to the LORD ; it will not be plucked up or overthrown anymore forever."
