ming the inviolability of God’s original covenant with Abraham (47:1–23—cf. Num

34:3–12). The division of the land between the tribes is given (48:1–29) and they are all

there! Yahweh has kept His promise to preserve His people and restore them from their

captivity. But the most significant thing is that the name of the city is “Yahweh is There”

(48:35). All is completed. The visions have come to pass. The Lord is dwelling with His

people.

Conclusion

Ezekiel stands as a great object lesson on the condition necessary for God to

dwell on earth among His people. As discouraging as the Babylonian destruction of

Jerusalem and the seventy-year captivity must have been, Ezekiel’s concluding vision

must rank as one of the most encouraging for those descendents of Abraham who will

accept what it naturally asserts and seek to live in light of its future certainty.
