Hebrews 8:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

For finding fault with them (μεμφόμενος αὐτοὺς)

Them signifies the possessors of the first covenant. The prophet says what follows by way of blame. The passage cited is Jeremiah 38:31-34, lxx (A.V. Jeremiah 31:31-34). The writer assumes that Jeremiah's new covenant means the Christian covenant.

I will make (συντελέσω)

Rend. I will conclude or consummate. See on Luke 4:13. Only here in Hebrews, and once in Paul, Romans 9:28, a citation.

With the house (ἐπὶ)

The preposition marking direction toward.

A new covenant (διαθήκην καινήν)

Always καινὴ in the phrase new covenant, except Hebrews 12:24, where we have νέα. For the distinction see note there, and see on Matthew 26:29.
