Joel 3:20

But Judah shall dwell for ever
The converted Jews shall dwell in their own land for ever, to the end of the, world and never more be carried captive, ( Ezekiel 37:25 ) ; and the true professing people of God, as Judah signifies, shall continue in a church state, evermore, and never more be disturbed by any enemies, they shall dwell safely and peaceably to the end of time: and Jerusalem from generation to generation;
shall dwell so in like manner, age after age; that is, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, or the members of the true church of Christ, who shall see and enjoy peace and prosperity, both temporal and spiritual, as Jerusalem signifies.
