God will be king over all the earth, one God and only one. What a Day that will be!
The land will stretch out spaciously around Jerusalem - to Geba in the north and Rimmon in the south, with Jerusalem towering at the center, and the commanding city gates - Gate of Benjamin to First Gate to Corner Gate to Hananel Tower to the Royal Winery - ringing the city
full of people. Never again will Jerusalem be totally destroyed. From now on it will be a safe city.
