Men will buy fields for money, and deeds shall be signed and sealed and witnessed in the land of Benjamin and in the places around Jerusalem and in the cities of Judah and in the cities of the hill country and in the cities of the lowland and in the cities of the Negev, for I will cause their captivity to return,” says Yahweh. Bible

“and…and…and…and…and.” Here in Jeremiah 32:44, God uses the figure of speech polysyndeton (many “ands”) to emphasize each individual point. From a human viewpoint it seemed like Judah was so devastated that it would never thrive again, but God makes it clear it will flourish everywhere—the hill country, the lowlands, and even in the more arid Negev. When Christ rules in the Millennial Kingdom, the earth will be a paradise, which is why Jesus told the thief on the cross that he would be with the Lord in “paradise” (see commentary on Luke 23:43).
