says, “The time is coming when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.
It will not be like the old covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and led them out of Egypt. Although I was like a husband to them, they did not keep that covenant.
The new covenant that I will make with the people of Israel will be this: I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
None of them will have to teach a neighbor to know the Lord
, because all will know me, from the least to the greatest. I will forgive their sins and I will no longer remember their wrongs. I, the Lord
, have spoken.”
