Jeremiah 32:41

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

AD 430
This grace God placed “in him in whom we have obtained a lot, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things.” And thus as he works that we come to him, so he works that we do not depart. For this reason, it was said to him by the mouth of the prophet, “Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, and on the Son of man whom you made strong for yourself, and we will not depart from you.” This certainly is not the first Adam, in whom we departed from him, but the second Adam, on whom his hand is placed, so that we do not depart from him. For Christ altogether with his members is—for the church’s sake, which is his body—the fullness of him. When, therefore, God’s hand is on him, that we depart not from God, assuredly God’s work reaches to us (for this is God’s hand). By this work of God we are caused to be abiding in Christ with God—not, as in Adam, departing from God. For “in Christ we have obtained a lot, being predestinated according to his purpose who works all things.” This, therefore, is God’s hand, not ours, that we depart not from God. That, I say, is his hand who said, “I will put my fear in their hearts that they depart not from me.”
