Ezekiel 11:17

Ezekiel 11:17

Therefore thus saith the Lord God, I will even gather you from
the people
The Babylonians, Medes, and Persians, where they had been carried captive: and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered;
that is, out of Chaldea and Media, out of which they should come in a body, and not singly, or in small numbers, as they did when Cyrus issued out his proclamation: and I will give you the land of Israel;
not only the Jews of the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, but many of the ten tribes came out of Babylon with Zerubbabel, and settled in the land of Israel; and hither they came also in later times, even those that settled in other countries; at their several festivals, and about such time more especially that the Messiah was expected, and continued there; and this will have a fuller completion at the restoration of the Jews in the latter days.
