Jeremiah 31:27

Jeremiah 31:27

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord
Or, "are coming" {k}; and will be here shortly: that I will sow the house of Israel, and the house of Judah, with the
seed of man, and with the seed of beast;
that is, will multiply both man and beast, so that there shall be a great increase; whereas, through war, famine, pestilence, and captivity, their number was greatly reduced. The allusion is to the sowing of a field with seed, which in due time springs up, and produces a large increase. Some understand this of the spiritual blessing of regeneration; but that is not of corruptible seed, such as is here mentioned, but of incorruptible seed, by the word of God: though this may be a type of the fruitfulness of the church in Gospel times; since afterwards an account is given of the new covenant, which should take place in those times.
