“Behold, the days come,” says the LORD,
“that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel,
and with the house of Judah:

which covenant of mine they broke,
although I was a husband to them,” says the LORD.
“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,”
says the LORD:
I will put my law in their inward parts,
and I will write it in their heart.
I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
They will no longer each teach his neighbour,
and every man teach his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD;’
for they will all know me,
from their least to their greatest,” says the LORD:
“for I will forgive their iniquity,
and I will remember their sin no more.”
