Commentaries such as that of Matthew Henry draw attention to the similarities of the vision of the holy city, the new Jerusalem, in the closing chapters of the Christian Bible, Revelation 21-22; these include the square plan, the twelve gates, and the presence of God. Jehovah-Shammah is therefore understood not merely as a name but as a description of the future reality.
Charles Spurgeon preached his New Year sermon in 1891 on this text in Ezekiel, declaring:
It is esteemed by the prophet to be the highest blessing that could come upon a city that its name should be, JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH, The Lord is there.
The phrase is also the title of a Christian hymn written published in 1816 whose theme is God's protection of Jerusalem, the eternal home of the saints.
