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.
Two Tablets for Your Heart
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he suggests that the law has been superseded.
