Chapter 32

Chapter Overview

Jeremiah in the siege of Jerusalem being imprisoned by Zedekiah, buys a field, takes witnesses, draws a writing, seals and delivers it to Baruch to preserve, as tokens of the peoples return, verse 1-15.
He prays with admiration of God's majesty and works; and represents his own conflict, verse 16-25.
God confirms the captivity for their sins, verse 26-35.
but promises a gracious return, verse 36-44.

Verse 5
Until I visit him - Perhaps in mercy; it is certain Zedekiah was not put to death, only carried to Babylon, where some think he afterward found favour with the king of Babylon.

Verse 9
The money - The price of land was strangely fallen at this time, when the enemy was besieging the chief city of the country.

Verse 11
I took - It is probable, that upon such sales among the Jews, two instruments were made, the one sealed up, to be kept by the purchaser, the other open, to be shewed to the judges, and by them ratified.

Verse 12
Baruch - This Baruch (chap. 46:4,26,) was a scribe, and an attendant upon Jeremiah. Witnesses - He made this purchase with all the usual formalities; he signed and sealed it before witnesses, and delivered it to Baruch to keep, in the presence of all the Jews.

Verse 20
Who hast set signs - Who didst wonders of justice in the land of Egypt, such as are remembered even to this day.

Verse 24
The mounts - Rather engines of war with which those nations used to batter walls, or to shoot great stones into places besieged.

Verse 34
Have set - Their idols.

Verse 39
One heart - I will give them union and concord, one mind and judgment. One way - They shall all worship me according, to the rule I have given them.

Verse 40
I will make - This promise manifestly relates to those Jews that should receive the Lord Jesus Christ, unless it be to be understood of a national conversion of the Jews, not yet effected.
