30 See, a time is coming—declares Hashem—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Yisrael and the House of Yehuda.

31:30 I will make a new covenant
The Children of Israel were unfaithful to Hashem and were twice exiled from their land. Throughout the ages, they have experienced oppression and persecution. Yet, God promises that as long as the celestial bodies of heaven continue to function according to the divinely ordained laws of nature, Israel will continue to be His chosen people (verses 34-35). This verse confirms that God has not abandoned or replaced His people; the Nation of Israel will never be cast away from Hashem.
