Jeremiah 32The valley - A valley, so called from the multitude of Sennacherib's army slain there. Of the ashes - So called from the ashes of the sacrifices carried thither. Holy - All these places shall be parts of the holy city, and God's name shall be sanctified, and he shall be worshipped in them all. For ever - If we interpret the word for ever of a perpetuity, the church of God must here be understood, against which the gates of hell shall never prevail. 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. The money - The price of land was strangely fallen at this time, when the enemy was besieging the chief city of the country. 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. 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. Who hast set signs - Who didst wonders of justice in the land of Egypt, such as are remembered even to this day. The mounts - Rather engines of war with which those nations used to batter walls, or to shoot great stones into places besieged. Have set - Their idols. 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. 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.
