Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

16:60 I will remember my covenant. Despite all her sins, even more blameworthy than even those of Sodom (Ezekiel 16:49-50), a nation that could never be restored after its complete annihilation (Genesis 19:24-25), Israel and Judah must eventually be restored because of God’s “everlasting covenant,” which had been made unconditionally with Abraham “in the days of thy youth.” That covenant was made because of Abraham’s obedience (not the later nation of his descendants) Note Genesis 12:1-7; 15:18-21; 17:1-8.
