exegeting Ezekiel 37 put it this way:
'The way in which Israel shall be saved is the same by which any
one individual sinner shall be saved. It is not, however, the one
case which the prophet is aiming at; he is looking at the vast mass
the multitudes of instances to be found among the Jewish people, of
gracious quickening and holy resurrection. His first and primary
intention was to speak of them, and though it is right and lawful to
take a passage in its widest possible meaning, yet I hold it to be
treason to God’s Word to neglect its primary meaning*. The preacher
of God’s truth should not give up the Holy Spirit’s meaning; he
should take care that he does not even put it in the background.'

however noteworthy that this practice has been the special forte of
“For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a
king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an

goodness in the latter days.
