O that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion!
&c.] Or, "who will give F6 out of Zion the salvation of Israel?" The Targum adds, "except the Lord"; and this is a request to him for it: and, as in ( Psalms 14:7 ) , it may be a wish for the first coming of Christ, to work out salvation for his people; here it may be expressive of the desire of the church for his coming in a spiritual manner, in the latter day, to take to himself his great power, and reign; to destroy antichrist, and deliver his people from bondage and oppression by him; when the Gentiles shall be gathered in, the Jews will be converted, and all Israel saved; see ( Romans 11:25 Romans 11:26 ) . It is in the original text, "salvations" F7; denoting the complete salvation of the church; when all her enemies will be destroyed, and all peace and prosperity shall be enjoyed by her; (See Gill on Psalms 14:6).
when God bringeth back the captivity of his people:
who have been carried into it by antichrist, ( Revelation 13:10 ) ;
Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad;
for now the kingdoms of this world will become Christ's; the marriage of the Lamb will be come, and the bride made ready, through the calling of the Gentiles, and the conversion of the Jews; which will occasion the twenty four elders, the representatives of the Christian church, to give thanks to the Lord God Almighty, and cause many voices to be heard in heaven, expressing great joy on this occasion, ( Revelation 11:15-18 ) ( 19:1-7 ) .
