Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.
All Commentaries on Jeremiah 32:41 Go To Jeremiah 32
Augustine of Hippo
Pride has so stopped the ears of their heart that the Pelagians do not hear, “For what have you that you have not received?” They do not hear, “Without me you can do nothing.” They do not hear, “Love is of God.” They do not hear, “God has dealt the measure of faith.” They do not hear, “The Spirit breathes where it will,” and, “They who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.” They do not hear, “No one can come to me, unless it were given him of my Father.” They do not hear what Esdras writes, “Blessed is the Lord of our ancestors, who has put into the heart of the king to glorify his house that is in Jerusalem.” They do not hear what the Lord says by Jeremiah, “And I will put my fear into their heart, that they do not depart from me. I will visit them to make them good.” They do not hear that word by Ezekiel the prophet, where God fully shows that he is not induced to make people good because they deserve good, that is, because they obey his commands, but rather that he repays to them good for evil, by doing this for his own sake and not for theirs.
