31 “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.
32 It will not be like the covenant(B)

when I took them by the hand
    to lead them out of Egypt,(D)
because they broke my covenant,
    though I was a husband(E) to[a] them,[b]
declares the Lord.

    after that time,” declares the Lord.

    and write it on their hearts.(G)
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.(H)
34 No longer will they teach(I) their neighbor,
    or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know(J) me,
    from the least of them to the greatest,”
