Cf. Deuteronomy 28:15-68 . From this captivity the ten tribes have never been restored to Palestine. A remnant of Judah returned under Zerubbabel, Ezra, and Nehemiah, and individuals out of the ten tribes (called, after the division of Solomon's kingdom, "Israel" in the historical books and Prophets, also "Ephraim" by the latter) went back, but the national restoration is yet to be fulfilled. See Palestinian Covenant, (See Scofield "Deuteronomy 30:3") , Kingdom, 2 Samuel 7:8-17 .
