Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 And I set my tabernacle in you; and never abhor your soul. [To set his tabernacle in a person is to dwell or live in that person.]

 12 And I will walk in you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people.

John 14:23

 23 And Jesus answered and said to him, "If a man loves me, he will obey my spoken words; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him5 [in his heart; and they live in a kingdom, into which you are translated. When you are translated into the kingdom, (while still alive on earth), you also see Him. Jesus appears in your heart. Jesus is revealed. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God." Rev 21:3.]

John 1:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 And the Word becomes flesh and dwells in us; and we behold his glorious splendor,7 the glorious splendor as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. [Jesus, whose name is the word of God, was made flesh to come to the earth as a man and is made flesh again when He is fully formed and resurrected in a purified believer. This verse has been mistranslated in all Bibles to be: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us; and we beheld his glory. See the Footnote to this verse that explains this correction in full detail. This verse is a continuation of verse 13 above by explaining how children are born of God. Paul wrote: "And what agreement can the temple of God have with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people," 2 Cor 6:16. From the Word of the Lord within: "Let the word of Christ richly dwell in you. If you give heed to my words, I will dwell in you and walk in you."]

 16 And what agreement can the temple of God have with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." [From the Word of the Lord within: "Those who belong to Christ are through with sin. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to me. Let the word of Christ richly dwell in you. If you give heed to my words, I will dwell in you and walk in you."]

 26  I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.1 [The stony heart symbolizes the stubborn, evil heart in all men; the fleshly heart symbolizes the heart that is submissive and obedient to God.]

 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you will keep my judgments, and do them.

 28 And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.

 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God. [A tabernacle is the residence or home of God, which is in the hearts of men. For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." 2 Cor 6:16. And Jesus answered and said to him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my words (obey me, practice my teachings); and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him, John 14:23; home in a man's heart with their kingdom, which they also bring to you.]

[From the Word of the Lord within: "Let the word Christ richly dwell in you. If you give heed to my words, I will dwell in you and walk in you."]
