“will be satisfied as with marrow and fat.” Although this blessing is primarily meant for this life, there are many people who are hungry, and so the ultimate fulfillment of this verse will occur in the next life, in the Millennial Kingdom, in which there will be an abundance of food (cp. Isa. 25:6). [For more on the “ideal promises” in the Bible that are meant to be true on earth but often are not, see commentary on Prov. 19:5. For more on the Millennial Kingdom, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].
