Because, all, shall know me, from the least unto the greatest of them; 12 Because, propitious, will I be as to their unrighteousnesses, and, of their sins, in nowise will I be mindful, any more. 13 In saying, Of a new sort, he hath made obsolete, the first; but, the thing that is becoming obsolete and aged, is near, disappearing!
