the city of God
46:4 the city of God. The city of God is not the church, but “the holy city, new Jerusalem” (Revelation 21:2), where will be the eternal dwelling place of God in the midst of His people. The city is not heaven, for it is “coming down from God out of heaven,” and will be established forever on the renewed earth. “The new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 66:22).
