Bible: Hebrews 8:6-13

8:6 But 1  now Jesus 2  has obtained a superior ministry, since 3  the covenant that he mediates is also better and is enacted 4  on better promises. 5 

8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, no one would have looked for a second one. 6  8:8 But 7  showing its fault, 8  God 9  says to them, 10 

Look, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will complete a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

8:9It will not be like the covenant 11  that I made with their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not continue in my covenant and I had no regard for them, says the Lord.

8:10For this is the covenant that I will establish with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will put 12  my laws in their minds 13  and I will inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God and they will be my people. 14 

8:11And there will be no need at all 15  for each one to teach his countryman or each one to teach his brother saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ since they will all know me, from the least to the greatest. 16 

8:12For I will be merciful toward their evil deeds, and their sins I will remember no longer.” 17 

8:13 When he speaks of a new covenant, 18  he makes the first obsolete. Now what is growing obsolete and aging is about to disappear. 19
