7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then there would have been no replacement sought for a second [covenant].
8 For finding fault with them, He said, "Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in my covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord.1
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts;2 and I will be to them a God, and they will be to me a people. [Christ, the light given to every man to believe what he shows them and commands them, is the new covenant of God. He is the truth; he is the grace; he is the grace and truth who comes, having tasted death for every man, to allow every man who believes in the light to become a child of the light, a son of God, who is light.]
16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days," says the Lord, "I will put my laws into their hearts, and I will write them in their minds [inward understanding];" [When you hear a command from the Spirit, speaking from within your heart, that imparts the life of God to you; and that command is established as a new law in your heart, added to the existing inner law of God on the heart of every man. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands. You must obey every law the Spirit establishes."]
