And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out,
&c.] Not the Jews only, but more especially their neighbouring nations; after they have been plucked up and carried captive, and been in captivity some time: I will return, and have compassion on them;
or, "have compassion on them again" F9; by returning their captivity, as is promised, ( Jeremiah 48:47 ) ( Jeremiah 49:6 Jeremiah 49:39 ) : and I will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man
to his land;
this seems to respect the conversion of the Gentiles in the latter day, when the fulness of them shall be brought in; as the latter part of the preceding verse may more especially regard the conversion of the Jews at the same time, when they shall be gathered out of all nations where they are, and return to their own land.
