And David my servant shall be king over them
The King Messiah, as Kimchi interprets it; and so Abarbinel F9 and others; being of the seed of David, and of whom David was an eminent type; and who, as Mediator, is the Lord's servant, and as man appeared in the form of one: this shows that this prophecy looks further than the times of deliverance from the Babylonish captivity: and they all shall have one shepherd:
or king, the same as before: kings are called shepherds; see ( Ezekiel 34:23 ) ( John 10:16 ) : and they shall also walk in my judgments, and keep my statutes, and do
not the statutes and ordinances of the ceremonial law, which are abolished; and which the Jews, when converted, shall have no regard unto; but rather the precepts of the moral law, and chiefly the evangelic ordinances of baptism and the Lord's supper; which ordinances they shall walk in, and attend unto with constancy and pleasure; and which statutes they shall keep, as they have been delivered, impartially, without delay, in faith and love, and with a view to the glory of God; see ( Ezekiel 36:27 ) .
