[3] That the habitation of Jehovah, that is, of the Lord, is in good, is evident in these passages:--

Shout for joy, and be glad, O daughter of Zion; lo, I come, that I may dwell in the midst of thee. Many nations shall cleave to Jehovah in that day, and they shall be to Me for a people; for I will dwell in thee (Zech. 2:10, 11).

I will set My sanctuary in the midst of them eternally, thus My habitation shall be with them (Ezek. 37:26, 27);
