The worship of Jehovah was thus re-established in Jerusalem, but the theocracy was not restored. The remnant which returned from the Babylonian captivity lived in the land by Gentile sufferance, though doubtless by the providential care of Jehovah, till Messiah came, and was crucified by soldiers of the fourth Gentile world-empire Rome, Daniel 2:40; Daniel 7:7. Soon after (A.D. 70) Rome destroyed the city and temple. See "Times of the Gentiles"; Luke 21:24; Revelation 16:19.
