Hebrews 8:8–13

8 For finding fault with them, He says,

aBehold, days are coming, says the Lord,

1When I will effect ba new covenant

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.

11 aAnd they shall not teach everyone his fellow citizen,

And everyone his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’

For ball will know Me,

From 1the least to the greatest of them.

12 aFor I will be merciful to their iniquities,

bAnd I will remember their sins no more.”
