I will also leave: the Chaldeans had spared none if the Lord had not preserved a remnant; it is he, rather than they, which did leave a remnant.
In the midst of thee; to return and dwell in Judea and Jerusalem.
An afflicted people; or a people of a broken spirit, a meek, humble, spirited people, instead of that proud heart which was once among them. Poor; not so much in outward respects as poor in spirit, such a people as the Lord can delight in.
They shall trust in the name of the Lord; not in city or temple, but in the Lord, and in his mercy, faithfulness, and power.
