“The days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the House of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers the day I took them by hand to lead them forth from the land of Egypt; for they broke my covenant and I had to show myself their master, says the Lord.”
