Jeremiah 31:31–40

31  aBehold, rthe days come, saith the Lord,

That I will make ba new covenant

With the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers

In the day that cI took them by the hand

To bring them out of the land of Egypt;

Which my covenant they brake,

||Although dI was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:

33  eBut this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel;

After those days, saith the Lord,

efI will put my law in their inward parts,

And write it in their hearts;

And gwill be their God,

And they shall be my people.

34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying,

Know the Lord:

For hthey shall all know me,

iFrom the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord:

For I klwill forgive their iniquity,

kAnd mI will remember their sin no more.

35  Thus saith the Lord, nwhich giveth the sun for a light by day,

And othe ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,

pWhich qdivideth the sea when the waves thereof roar;

rThe Lord of hosts is his name:

36  sIf those oordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord,

Then the seed of Israel also shall cease

tFrom being a nation before me for ever.

37  Thus saith the Lord;

uIf heaven above can be measured,

And the foundations of the earth searched out beneath,

vI will also cast off all the seed of Israel

For all that they have done, saith the Lord.

38  Behold, wthe days come, saith the Lord,

That the city shall be built to the Lord

From xthe tower of Hananeel unto ythe gate of the corner.

39  And zthe measuring line shall yet go forth over against it

Upon the hill aGareb, and shall compass about to aGoath.

40  And bthe whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes,

And all the fields unto cthe brook of Kidron,

Unto dthe corner of the horse gate toward the east,

eShall be holy unto the Lord;

fIt shall not be plucked up, nor fthrown down any more for ever.
