Jeremiah 32:26-44 A Physical And Spiritual Return.
In his word to Jeremiah the LORD declares that he is sovereign over all flesh, so that the coming captivity by Babylon is of his doing, because of the idolatry of his covenanted people, leaders including priests and prophets, and the people (vv. 26-32).They turned their back on the LORD, even though he taught them from their beginnings. Idols in the house of the LORD were an abomination, as well as the high places of Baal where they caused their children to pass through the fire to Molech (vv. 33-35). However, the judgment would not last forever. A remnant would return physically and spiritually, as a planting of the LORD, with their hearts in covenant fidelity to the LORD, in an everlasting covenant as his people, and he their God (vv. 36-41). Then land will be bought, with deeds signed and sealed with witnesses, because they will have hope and a future on earth (vv. 42-44).
