And Judah and all its cities shall dwell there together, and the farmers and those who wander with their flocks.
For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish."
Thereupon I awoke and looked, and my sleep was pleasant to me.
"Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast.
And it shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up and break down, to overthrow, destroy, and bring evil, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the LORD.
In those days they shall no longer say: 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.'
But every one shall die for his own sin; each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.
"Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah,
not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD.
But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."
