Both Judah and Ephraim shall be re-gathered from among the nations


 37:21  And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold,

            [1] I will take the children of Israel

[a.] from among the heathen [nations],

                                    [11.] whither they be gone, and

            [2] [I] will gather them on every side, and

            [3] [I will] bring them into their own land:

 37:22  And

            [4] I will make them one nation

                        [a.] in the land

[b.] upon the mountains of Israel [upon the West Bank, which is biblical Samaria (Ezekiel 38:8)]; and

            [5] one king [David (vs.24)] shall be king to them all: and

            [6] they shall be no more two nations,

            [7] neither shall they be divided

[a.] into two kingdoms any more at all:

 37:23  [8] Neither shall they defile themselves any more

[a.]  with their idols,

                        [b.] nor with their detestable things,

                        [c.] nor with any of their transgressions: but

            [9] I will save them out of all their dwelling places,

                        [a.] wherein they have sinned, and

            [10. [I] will cleanse them:

                        [a.] so shall they be my people,

                        [b.] and I will be their God.

 37:24  And

            [11.] David my servant [shall be] king over them; and

            [12.] they all shall have one shepherd [Jesus]:

            [13.] they shall also walk in my judgments,

                        [a.] and observe my statutes,

                        [b.] and do them.

 37:25  And

            [14.] they shall dwell in the land

                        [a.] that I have given unto Jacob my servant,

                        [b.] wherein your fathers have dwelt; and

            [15.] they shall dwell therein, [even] they,

                        [a.] and their children,

                        [b.] and their children's children

                                    [11.] for ever [Israel has an earthly hope:  the land forever]: and

            [16.] my servant David [shall be] their prince

                        [a.] for ever. [David has an earthly hope: King over Israel, forever].


God’s everlasting covenant of peace with Israel


 37:26  Moreover

            [17.] I will make a covenant of peace [Is. 54:10] with them;

                        [a.] it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and

            [18.] I will

                        [a.] place them, and

                        [b.] multiply them, and will

                        [c.] set my sanctuary in the midst of them [the millennial temple of Ezekiel 48]

                                    [11.] for evermore [worship will never again cease]

 37:27  [19] My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea,

            [20] I will be their God, and

            [21] they shall be my people.

 37:28  And

            [22] the heathen [nations] shall know

                        [a.] that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,

                        [b.] when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them

                                    [11.] for evermore.
