New Defender's Study Bible Notes
36:27 my spirit within you. This regeneration of Israel is to be accomplished by God sometime after their return to Israel in unbelief. This has not yet been fulfilled, but God will do it in such a striking way that “the heathen shall know that I am the LORD” (Ezekiel 36:23), and even “the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward” (Ezekiel 39:22). Chapters 37, 38 and 39 tell how all this will be accomplished.
