|Jeremiah 31:31-34 |
31 Behold, the days come," says the Lord, "that 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 I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them," says the Lord:
33 "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days," says the Lord, "I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall no longer teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," says the Lord, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.1
1 Regarding spiritual Israel in the later days: The Lord will write his law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts. This is the process of listening to the Lord, hearing his commands, and then keeping them. They all shall know me from the least to the greatest.
