He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the middle of the children of Israel forever. The house of Israel will no more defile my holy name, neither they nor their kings, by their prostitution and by the dead bodies of their kings in their high places;
“place of my throne.” The Millennial Temple will not have an ark of the covenant (see commentary on Jeremiah 3:16). Furthermore, Jerusalem itself will be the throne of God (Jer. 3:17).
