Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
There will be no need to lock the city gates because there is no danger. On the contrary, it is important to keep them open because kings and caravans of wealth will be arriving day and night. Destruction will await any nation that does not serve Israel in that day. Lebanon sends its finest trees to beautify the temple area. The descendants of those Gentiles who formerly persecuted Israel now acknowledge Jerusalem as “The City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel”.
