Jeremiah Buys a Field

32This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar.H1697H3414H3068H6224H8141H6667H4428H3063H8083H6240H8141H8141H5019 2The army of the king of Babylon was then besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was confined in the courtyard of the guard in the royal palace of Judah.H4428H894H2428H6696H3389H3414H5030H3607H2691H4307H4428H3063H1004 3Now Zedekiah king of Judah had imprisoned him there, saying, "Why do you prophesy as you do? You say, 'This is what the LORD says: I am about to hand this city over to the king of Babylon, and he will capture it.H6667H4428H3063H3607H559H5012H559H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H4428H894H3920 4Zedekiah king of Judah will not escape out of the hands of the Babylonians but will certainly be handed over to the king of Babylon, and will speak with him face to face and see him with his own eyes.H6667H4428H3063H4422H3027H3778H5414H5414H3027H4428H894H1696H6310H6310H5869H7200H5869 5He will take Zedekiah to Babylon, where he will remain until I deal with him, declares the LORD. If you fight against the Babylonians, you will not succeed.'"H3212H6667H894H6485H5002H3068H3898H3778H6743 6Jeremiah said, "The word of the LORD came to me:H3414H559H1697H3068H559 7Hanamel son of Shallum your uncle is going to come to you and say, 'Buy my field at Anathoth, because as nearest relative it is your right and duty to buy it.'H2601H1121H7967H1730H935H559H7069H7704H6068H4941H1353H7069 8"Then, just as the LORD had said, my cousin Hanamel came to me in the courtyard of the guard and said, 'Buy my field at Anathoth in the territory of Benjamin. Since it is your right to redeem it and possess it, buy it for yourself.' "I knew that this was the word of the LORD;H2601H1730H1121H935H2691H4307H1697H3068H559H7069H7704H6068H776H1144H4941H3425H1353H7069H3045H1697H3068 9so I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel and weighed out for him seventeen shekels of silver.H7069H7704H2601H1730H1121H6068H8254H3701H7651H6235H8255H3701 10I signed and sealed the deed, had it witnessed, and weighed out the silver on the scales.H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H8254H3701H3976 11I took the deed of purchase--the sealed copy containing the terms and conditions, as well as the unsealed copy--H3947H5612H4736H2856H4687H2706H1540 12and I gave this deed to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel and of the witnesses who had signed the deed and of all the Jews sitting in the courtyard of the guard.H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H1121H4271H5869H2601H1730H5869H5707H3789H5612H4736H5869H3064H3427H2691H4307 13"In their presence I gave Baruch these instructions:H6680H1263H5869H559 14'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Take these documents, both the sealed and unsealed copies of the deed of purchase, and put them in a clay jar so they will last a long time.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3947H5612H5612H4736H2856H5612H1540H5414H2789H3627H5975H7227H3117 15For this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Houses, fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land.'H559H3068H6635H430H3478H1004H7704H3754H7069H776 16"After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch son of Neriah, I prayed to the LORD:H310H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H6419H3068H559 17"Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.H162H136H3069H6213H8064H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H1697H6381 18You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the fathers' sins into the laps of their children after them. O great and powerful God, whose name is the LORD Almighty,H6213H2617H505H7999H5771H1H2436H1121H310H1419H1368H410H3068H6635H8034 19great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to all the ways of men; you reward everyone according to his conduct and as his deeds deserve.H1419H6098H7227H5950H5869H6491H1870H1121H120H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 20You performed miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt and have continued them to this day, both in Israel and among all mankind, and have gained the renown that is still yours.H7760H226H4159H776H4714H3117H3478H120H6213H8034H3117 21You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great terror.H3318H5971H3478H776H4714H226H4159H2389H3027H5186H248H1419H4172 22You gave them this land you had sworn to give their forefathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.H5414H776H7650H1H5414H776H2100H2461H1706 23They came in and took possession of it, but they did not obey you or follow your law; they did not do what you commanded them to do. So you brought all this disaster upon them.H935H3423H8085H6963H1980H8451H6213H6680H6213H7451H7122 24"See how the siege ramps are built up to take the city. Because of the sword, famine and plague, the city will be handed over to the Babylonians who are attacking it. What you said has happened, as you now see.H5550H935H5892H3920H5892H5414H3027H3778H3898H6440H2719H7458H1698H1696H7200 25And though the city will be handed over to the Babylonians, you, O Sovereign LORD, say to me, 'Buy the field with silver and have the transaction witnessed.'"H559H136H3069H7069H7704H3701H5749H5707H5892H5414H3027H3778 26Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:H1697H3068H3414H559 27"I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?H3068H430H1320H1697H6381 28Therefore, this is what the LORD says: I am about to hand this city over to the Babylonians and to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who will capture it.H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H3778H3027H5019H4428H894H3920 29The Babylonians who are attacking this city will come in and set it on fire; they will burn it down, along with the houses where the people provoked me to anger by burning incense on the roofs to Baal and by pouring out drink offerings to other gods.H3778H3898H5892H935H3341H784H5892H8313H1004H1406H6999H1168H5258H5262H312H430H3707 30"The people of Israel and Judah have done nothing but evil in my sight from their youth; indeed, the people of Israel have done nothing but provoke me with what their hands have made, declares the LORD.H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5271H1121H3478H3707H4639H3027H5002H3068 31From the day it was built until now, this city has so aroused my anger and wrath that I must remove it from my sight.H5892H639H2534H3117H1129H3117H5493H6440 32The people of Israel and Judah have provoked me by all the evil they have done--they, their kings and officials, their priests and prophets, the men of Judah and the people of Jerusalem.H7451H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H3707H4428H8269H3548H5030H376H3063H3427H3389 33They turned their backs to me and not their faces; though I taught them again and again, they would not listen or respond to discipline.H6437H6203H6440H3925H7925H3925H8085H3947H4148 34They set up their abominable idols in the house that bears my Name and defiled it.H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 35They built high places for Baal in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech, though I never commanded, nor did it enter my mind, that they should do such a detestable thing and so make Judah sin.H1129H1116H1168H1516H1121H2011H1121H1323H5674H4432H6680H5927H3820H6213H8441H3063H2398 36"You are saying about this city, 'By the sword, famine and plague it will be handed over to the king of Babylon'; but this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says:H559H3068H430H3478H5892H559H5414H3027H4428H894H2719H7458H1698 37I will surely gather them from all the lands where I banish them in my furious anger and great wrath; I will bring them back to this place and let them live in safety.H6908H776H5080H639H2534H1419H7110H7725H4725H3427H983 38They will be my people, and I will be their God.H5971H430 39I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them.H5414H259H3820H259H1870H3372H3117H2896H1121H310 40I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me.H3772H5769H1285H7725H310H3190H5414H3374H3824H5493 41I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.H7797H2895H5193H776H571H3820H5315 42"This is what the LORD says: As I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised them.H559H3068H935H1419H7451H5971H935H2896H1696 43Once more fields will be bought in this land of which you say, 'It is a desolate waste, without men or animals, for it has been handed over to the Babylonians.'H7704H7069H776H559H8077H120H929H5414H3027H3778 44Fields will be bought for silver, and deeds will be signed, sealed and witnessed in the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem, in the towns of Judah and in the towns of the hill country, of the western foothills and of the Negev, because I will restore their fortunes, declares the LORD."H7069H7704H3701H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H7622H7725H5002H3068
