  • Hebrews 8:8-12

    But God did find fault with them, since he says,

    Look, the days are coming, says the Lord,
            when I will make a covenant with the house of Israel,
            and I will make a new covenant with the house of Judah.
    It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors
        on the day I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt,
            because they did not continue to keep my covenant,
            and I lost interest in them, says the Lord.
    10 This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
            after those days, says the Lord.
    I will place my laws in their minds,
            and write them on their hearts.
    I will be their God,
        and they will be my people.
    11     And each person won’t ever teach a neighbor
        or their brother or sister, saying,Know the Lord,
            because they will all know me,
                from the least important of them to the most important;
    12         because I will be lenient toward their unjust actions,
                and I won’t remember their sins anymore.
