Ezekiel 45:8

Ezekiel 45:8

In the land shall be his possession in Israel
Or, "as for the land, it shall be his for a possession in Israel" F1; the people of the land shall be a people for possession, as in ( 1 Peter 2:9 ) or a peculiar people of his throughout all Israel; all the spiritual Israel, whether Jew or Gentile, shall be Christ's possession and inheritance: and my princes shall no more oppress my people;
neither ecclesiastical princes, as the Scribes and Pharisees formerly, nor civil magistrates; not the one with false doctrines, carnal rites and ceremonies; nor the other with heavy taxes, and rigorous exactions: and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Israel
according to their tribes;
the spiritual and mystical Israel, Jews and Gentiles, who shall now inherit the earth, and possess all temporal good things, as well as spiritual ones.
