    V34, When we are saved by God's Grace, we can rest knowing that ours sins are forgiving and that He will Never Remember them Again. We are promised in Revelation 20 that our sins are forgiven and forgotten and our name is put into the "book of life"

    In verse 31 a new covenant was foretold. The nation of Israel had broken the Law covenant so a new covenant was foretold.
  • Bobby Earl Epinger
    The Almighty God made the first Covenant with Israel and Jeremiah 31:31 clearly states that He will make The New Covenant with Israel also. Because Salvation comes from and is of the Jewish people through our Savior Jesus, Who is The Christ and Savior not only in this world, but also in the world that is to come.
