The seed also of his servants shall inherit it
Not their natural, but spiritual seed, or a succession of converts in the churches; see ( Psalms 45:16 ) ( Isaiah 59:21 ) ; who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God; not of corruptible, but incorruptible seed, by the word of God, which lives and abides for ever, ( John 1:13 ) ( 1 Peter 1:23 ) ; these are the proper and rightful inheritors of the Gospel church state, and all its privileges, in all successive generations, quite down to the New Jerusalem church state, wherein will dwell only righteous persons, and whose names are in the Lamb's book of life. Aben Ezra's note upon it is,
``they shall inherit it, they and their children, in the days of David, or in the days of the Messiah;''and they that love his name shall dwell therein;
that love the person, Gospel, truths and ordinances of Christ; see ( Song of Solomon 1:3 ) ; these shall have an abiding place in Zion, the church of God; in the cities of Judah, particular congregational churches; and in the city of the New Jerusalem, where will be the tabernacle of God among men, and he shall dwell among them, and they with him.
