"For I will be merciful and gracious toward their sins"

Sins or hamartia in Greek means:

a. that which is done wrong, sin, an offence, a violation of the divine law in thought or in act

b. collectively, the complex or aggregate of sins committed either by a single person or by many

Unrighteousness came from the Greek word: "adikia" meaning:

a. injustice, of a judge

b. unrighteousness of heart and life

c. a deed violating law and justice, act of unrighteousness

Unrighteousness refers to our deeds before we are not yet in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, it refers to our works. It's a noun, a personality that the LORD GOD have already shown grace and mercy thru the Person of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Both sins and unrighteousness are noun,feminine, a person that can only be forgiven and shown mercy by Another Person, that is the Person of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

10:16 This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up and conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their inmost thoughts and understanding),

10:17 He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more.

Jeremiah 31:33-34 (Amplified Bible)

31:33 But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel: After those days, says the Lord, I will put My law within them, and on their hearts will I write it; and I will be their God, and they will be My people.

31:34 And they will no more teach each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, Know the Lord, for they will all know Me [recognize, understand, and be acquainted with Me], from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will [seriously] remember their sin no more.
