“lifted up my hand.” One way a person swore a solemn oath was to raise his hand and swear. See commentary on Genesis 14:22.

Eze 36:24

“bring you into your own land.” There are many verses that prophesy Israel’s return to the land of Israel, most of which will happen at the first resurrection, the Resurrection of the Righteous (cp. Ezek. 37:12-28). [For more information on Israel’s return to the Promised Land, see commentary on Jeremiah 32:37].

Eze 36:25(top)
Eze 36:26

“I will put a new spirit inside you.” Ezekiel 36:26 is very similar to Ezekiel 11:19. Also, it has some things in common with Jeremiah 32:39 (see commentary on Ezekiel 11:19 and Jeremiah 32:39). Also, although “spirit” can have several meanings in this verse, one of them is the gift of holy spirit, which in the Old Testament God placed “upon” people but which in the New Covenant will be “in” people. Jesus Christ understood this and taught it to his apostles at the Last Supper (see John 14:17 and commentary on John 14:17).

Eze 36:36

“rebuilt.” The Hebrew word is banah (#01129 בָּנָה) and it can mean “build” or “rebuild” depending on the context. Here it means “rebuild.” Over the centuries many of the cities of Israel and Judah were destroyed (and here in Ezekiel the primary emphasis is on the cities of Judah that were destroyed by Babylon), but God promises that in the future, which we know will be in the Millennial Kingdom when Jesus Christ rules the earth from Jerusalem, Israel will be repopulated and the cities rebuilt.

[For more on God regathering all the Israelites to Israel, see commentary on Jer. 32:37. For Jesus Christ reigning over all the earth see commentary on Dan. 2:35. For more on the future reign of Jesus Christ over the earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Eze 36:37

“I will increase them.” The prophecies of the future Millennial Kingdom include all Israel being filled with people. This will be due in large part to the number of righteous people who will be in the first resurrection, the Resurrection of the Righteous, and also because the natural people allowed into the Kingdom from the Sheep and Goat Judgement will multiply greatly.

[For more on the Millennial Kingdom, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth.” For more on the Sheep and Goat Judgment, see Matt. 25:31-46 and commentary on Matt. 25:32].
