Jeremiah 31:38

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the (o) city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel to the gate of the corner.

(o) As it was performed, (Nehemiah 3:1). By this description he shows that the city would be as ample and beautiful as it ever was: but he alludes to the spiritual Jerusalem whose beauty would be incomparable.
