Zechariah 2

More wonderful news about the future:
“Daughter Zion, shout for joy and be glad, for I am coming to dwell among you”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on that day and become My people. I will dwell among you, and you will know that the Lord of Hosts has sent Me to you. The Lord will take possession of Judah as His portion in the Holy Land, and He will once again choose Jerusalem. Let all people be silent before the Lord, for He is coming from His holy dwelling.” Zechariah 2:10-13

This has clearly never happened yet! Foreign nations joining themselves to Israel considering themselves Israelites. This is what awaits us in a few centuries. God was very generous about foreigners joining Israel:
“You must not exploit a foreign resident or oppress him, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21
“The Israelites traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about 600,000 soldiers on foot, besides their families. An ethnically diverse crowd also went up with them, along with a huge number of livestock, both flocks and herds.” Exodus 12:37-38
Israel will be the chief nation of the world in that day.
