33 But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel
        after those days,
declares the Lord.
I will put my law[a] in their minds,
and I will write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.

or each one teach his brother, saying, “Know the Lord,”
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord,

Footnotes

  1. Jeremiah 31:33 The term law here refers to the whole word of God. As verse 34 demonstrates, here the term law does not refer to the natural knowledge of the law written in our hearts, but rather to our knowledge of the gospel.

33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
    after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds(A)
    and write it on their hearts.(B)
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.(C)
34 No longer will they teach(D) their neighbor,
    or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know(E) me,
    from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.
“For I will forgive(F) their wickedness
    and will remember their sins(G) no more.”

35 This is what the Lord says,

he who appoints(H) the sun
    to shine by day,
who decrees the moon and stars
    to shine by night,(I)
who stirs up the sea(J)
    so that its waves roar(K)
    the Lord Almighty is his name:(L)
