Hebrews 8:7–12

For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.f But God found fault with the people and saidb:

“The days are coming, declares the Lord,

when I will make a new covenantg

with the people of Israel

and with the people of Judah.

It will not be like the covenant

I made with their ancestorsh

when I took them by the hand

to lead them out of Egypt,

because they did not remain faithful to my covenant,

and I turned away from them,

declares the Lord.

10 This is the covenanti I will establish with the people of Israel

after that time, declares the Lord.

I will put my laws in their minds

and write them on their hearts.j

I will be their God,

and they will be my people.k

11 No longer will they teach their neighbor,

or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’

because they will all know me,l

from the least of them to the greatest.

12 For I will forgive their wickedness

and will remember their sins no more.mc n
