27 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that qI will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. 28 And it shall come to pass, that as I have rwatched over them sto pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy, and to afflict, so I will watch over them tto build and to plant, says the Lord. 29 uIn those days they shall say no more:

‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes,

And the children’s teeth are set on edge.’

30 vBut every one shall die for his own iniquity; every man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.

A New Covenant

31 “Behold, the wdays are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a 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 xI took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, 8though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. 33 yBut this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: zI will put My law in their minds, and write it on their 9hearts; aand I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for bthey all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For cI will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

35 Thus says the Lord,

dWho gives the sun for a light by day,

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

Who disturbs ethe sea,

And its waves roar

f(The Lord of hosts is His name):

36 “If gthose ordinances depart

From before Me, says the Lord,

Then the seed of Israel shall also cease

From being a nation before Me forever.”
