“The days are coming, declares the Lord,
    when I will make a new covenant(A)
with the people of Israel
    and with the people of Judah.

    I made with their ancestors(B)
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 covenant(C) 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.(D)
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.(E)
11 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
    or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,(F)
    from the least of them to the greatest.
12 For I will forgive their wickedness
    and will remember their sins no more.(G)[b](H)
