Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 31:31

_ _ the days ... new covenant with ... Israel ... Judah — The new covenant is made with literal Israel and Judah, not with the spiritual Israel, that is, believers, except secondarily, and as grafted on the stock of Israel (Romans 11:16-27). For the whole subject of the thirtieth and thirty-first chapters is the restoration of the Hebrews (Jeremiah 30:4, Jeremiah 30:7, Jeremiah 30:10, Jeremiah 30:18; Jeremiah 31:7, Jeremiah 31:10, Jeremiah 31:11, Jeremiah 31:23, Jeremiah 31:24, Jeremiah 31:27, Jeremiah 31:36). With the “remnant according to the election of grace” in Israel, the new covenant has already taken effect. But with regard to the whole nation, its realization is reserved for the last days, to which Paul refers this prophecy in an abridged form (Romans 11:27).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 31:31

Behold — And not only with the Jews, but all those who should be ingrafted into that Olive. It is not called the new covenant, because it was as to the substance new, for it was made with Abraham, Genesis 17:7, and with the Jews, Deuteronomy 26:17-18, but because it was revealed after a new manner, more fully and particularly, plainly and clearly. Nor was the ceremonial law any part of it, as it was to the Jews, a strict observance of that. It was likewise new in regard of the efficacy of the spirit attending it, in a much fuller and larger manner.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 31:31

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a (h) new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

(h) Though the covenant of redemption made to the fathers and this which was given later seemed varied, yet they are all one and grounded on Jesus Christ, save that this is called new, because of the manifestation of Christ and the abundant graces of the Holy Spirit given to his Church under the gospel.
