Bible: Jer 31:31-34

31:31Indeed, a time is coming,” says the Lord, 1  “when I will make a new covenant 2  with the people of Israel and Judah. 3  31:32 It will not be like the old 4  covenant that I made with their ancestors 5  when I delivered them 6  from Egypt. For they violated that covenant, even though I was like a faithful husband to them,” 7  says the Lord. 8  31:33 But I will make a new covenant with the whole nation of Israel 9  after I plant them back in the land,” 10  says the Lord. 11  “I will 12  put my law within them 13  and write it on their hearts and minds. 14  I will be their God and they will be my people. 15 

31:34People will no longer need to teach their neighbors and relatives to know me. 16  For all of them, from the least important to the most important, will know me,” 17  says the Lord. “For 18  I will forgive their sin and will no longer call to mind the wrong they have done.”
