He will set up a banner for the nations
and will assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth. Bible other translations

“assemble the outcasts of Israel.” When Jesus Christ comes from heaven and conquers the earth at the Battle of Armageddon, he will set up his kingdom on earth and reign 1000 years. He will raise the righteous dead of the Old Testament, Gospels, and Book of Revelation in the “Resurrection of the Righteous,” the first resurrection, and gather the people of Israel and Judah back to the land of Israel. Many verses describe this regathering of Israel and Judah to the land of Israel (see commentary on Jer. 32:37). [For more on the Resurrection of the Righteous and the Resurrection of the Unrighteousness, see commentary on Acts 24:15. For more on Christ’s future Millennial Kingdom, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].
