What does Jeremiah 31:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 31:17

And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord
Or, "hope for thy posterity" F18; for their children that had been massacred, that these should rise again, and enjoy a blessed immortality, as the next clause seems to explain and confirm it: that thy children shall come again to their own border:
either to the border of the land of Israel, as Joseph, Mary, and Jesus did, ( Matthew 2:21 Matthew 2:22 ) ; or rather to the borders of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, where this cruel murder was committed; and so the intimation is, that they shall rise again, and stand upon that very spot of ground where their blood was split; and not only so, but enter into and dwell upon the new earth in the Jerusalem state; and also enter into the heavenly Canaan, and dwell with Christ for evermore, on whose account their lives were taken away.
