Ezekiel 39:29 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 39:29

Neither will I hide my face any more from them
The Jews, upon their future conversion, will always have the worship of God among them, and his presence with them; he will always take notice of them; they will ever be under his protection and care; he will never remove his Shechinah from them any more, as the Targum: a further proof that this refers to future times; for, after their return from Babylon, God did hide his face, and remove his presence from them, and left them to ruin and destruction by the Romans: for I have poured out my Spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the
Lord God;
this refers not to the effusion of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, but to one that is yet to come, when the Jews will be converted in the latter day; after which God will no more depart from them, nor shall they depart from him; see ( Zechariah 12:10 ) ( Isaiah 59:19-21 ) .
