Hebrews 8:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For finding fault with them - The meaning is evidently this: God, in order to show that the first covenant was inefficient, saith to them, the Israelites, Behold, the days come when I will make a new covenant, etc. He found fault with the covenant, and addressed the people concerning his purpose of giving another covenant, that should be such as the necessities of mankind required.

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
2 Corinthians 3:6
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.
But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.
By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.
