Jeremiah 31:31-34

Learning the Law by Heart

31 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt--a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, "Know the LORD," for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

Continuing with the thoughts on how great it's going to be, God will make a new covenant. This covenant will be better than the one made on Mount Sinai, which the people broke. God will restore the direct relationship with the people and this time write the law on their hearts. This refers most directly to the return to and rebuilding of Jerusalem by the Israelite remnant after the Babylonian exile. Later it is referenced by Christianity in regard to Jesus' mission and echoed in Paul's letters when he suggests that the law has been superseded.
