HH: The text does not say "eternal covenant;" it says "new covenant." 
The Hebrew word means "new," as any lexicon will tell you." Here are the 
words listed in the HAL lexicon under the word:

new, fresh , not yet existing; a new song;  new things; bride, newly married woman;
the newly married man); meal-offering of fresh 
cereals : fresh fruits;
new gods (alt. a new god, text ?)
