Jeremiah 31:23

Jeremiah 31:23

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel
The Governor of the whole world, the Lord of armies above and below; and yet has a peculiar regard to Israel, his spiritual Israel, whose covenant God and Father he is; and is to be believed in what he after says, the fulfilment of which may be depended on: as yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah, and in the
cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity;
not the Babylonish captivity, but their present one; for, upon their return from Babylon, though there was a reformation among them, by means of Ezra, and Nehemiah, and others, yet not so great an one as is here suggested; when, by way of salutation and prayer, the following words will be said by all that know them, and wish well to them, as had been heretofore: the Lord bless thee, O habitation of justice, [and] mountain of
holiness;
for now Jerusalem will be the habitation of righteous men, and every pot or person in it, and in "Judah, shall be holiness to the Lord", ( Zechariah 14:21 ) ; and so shall be blessed of God, and pronounced blessed by men, by all good men, among the Gentiles, who will rejoice at their conversion, restoration, and reformation.
