The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible

Jeremiah 23:7

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord
Or, "are coming" F9; and will begin to take place in a little time, even upon the Jews' return from Babylon; and reached to the times of Christ, to which they have a special regard; and include the whole Gospel dispensation, even the latter day glory, when the Jews shall return to, and dwell in, their own land; as (Jeremiah 23:8) ; shows: that they shall no more say, the Lord liveth:
the people of Israel in particular, or the Lord's people in general, shall no more swear by the living God, described as follows; or, as the Targum, declare no more the power of God, in the instance next mentioned, they had been used to do: which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt:
which, though a wonderful deliverance, and never to be forgotten; yet not to be named with the redemption and salvation wrought out by Christ the Lord our righteousness; that being a deliverance from far greater and more powerful enemies, and from the far greater bondage of sin, Satan, and the law; nor with the restoration of the Jews in the latter day, which will be a most wonderful and amazing event, (Romans 11:15,25,26) .
