“But this is the covenant that I will cut with the house of Israel after those days,” declares Yahweh. “I will put my law within them, yes, I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be my people, Bible see other translations

“covenant.” This refers to the New Covenant, whereas the covenant God made with Israel at Mt. Sinai was the “Old Covenant” (usually but mistakenly called the “Old Testament”). The Old Covenant was made with animal blood, while the New Covenant was made with Christ’s blood. There are many aspects to the New Covenant, one of them being that we will live on a restored earth.

[For more on the restored earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth.”]
