Hebrews 8:9-12

Context

8:9It will not be like the covenant 1  that I made with their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not continue in my covenant and I had no regard for them, says the Lord.

8:10For this is the covenant that I will establish with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will put 2  my laws in their minds 3  and I will inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God and they will be my people. 4 

8:11And there will be no need at all 5  for each one to teach his countryman or each one to teach his brother saying,Know the Lord,since they will all know me, from the least to the greatest. 6 

8:12For I will be merciful toward their evil deeds, and their sins I will remember no longer. 7

2 tn Grk “putting…I will inscribe.”

4 tn Grk “I will be to them for a God and they will be to me for a people,” following the Hebrew constructions of Jer 31.
