A reading from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah
The days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the
house of Israel and the house of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers; the day I took
them by the hand to lead them forth from the land of Egypt. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after
those days, says the Lord. I will place my law within them, and write it upon their hearts; I will be
their God, and they shall be my people.
No longer will they have need to teach their friends and relatives how to
know the Lord.
All, from least to greatest, shall know me, says the Lord.
The word of the Lord.
[All respond: Thanks be to God.]
