(19) Shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem.--The two words are, of course, practically synonymous; but the prophet dwells with a patriot's affection on both the names which were dear to him. The words admit of being taken as a vocative, "Yea, O people that dwellest."

Verse 19. - For the people shall dwell in Zion; rather, a people shall continue. Jerusalem shall not now be made desolate, or deprived of its inhabitants. Whatever the number of captives taken, "a people shall remain." Thou shalt weep no more. The reasons for weeping shall be removed. He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry. For God to be gracious to them, they must first "cry" to him - make an earnest, hearty appeal to him for mercy. Their "cry" will be answered as soon as heard, is as soon as uttered.
