7 For aif that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second.
“aBehold, days are coming, says the Lord,
With the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;
9 aNot like the covenant which I made with their fathers
On the day when I took them by the hand
To lead them out of the land of Egypt;
For they did not continue in My covenant,
And I did not care for them, says the Lord.
10 “aFor this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
After those days, says the Lord:
1I will put My laws into their minds,
And I will write them bon their hearts.
And I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.
