Jeremiah Purchases a Field

32This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah. It was the eighteenth year of the reign 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 at the palace of the king of JudahH4428H894H2428H6696H3389H3414H5030H3607H2691H4307H4428H3063H1004 3where Zedekiah had confined him. Zedekiah had said, "Why did you prophesy and say these things?You said, 'This is what the Lord says: "I'm about to give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will capture it.H6667H4428H3063H3607H559H5012H559H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H4428H894H3920 4Zedekiah king of Judah won't escape from the Chaldeans, for he has surely been given over to the king of Babylon. He will speak to him face to face and look at him eye to eye.H6667H4428H3063H4422H3027H3778H5414H5414H3027H4428H894H1696H6310H6310H5869H7200H5869 5The king of Babylon will take Zedekiah to Babylon and there he will stay until I judge him," declares the Lord. If you fight against the Chaldeans, you won't succeed."'"H3212H6667H894H6485H5002H3068H3898H3778H6743 6Jeremiah replied, "The word of the Lord came to me:H3414H559H1697H3068H559 7'Look, Hanamel, your cousin, is coming to you and will say, "Buy my field in Anathoth for yourself, because the right of redemption to buy it belongs to you."'H2601H1121H7967H1730H935H559H7069H7704H6068H4941H1353H7069 8Then my cousin Hanamel came to me in the courtyard of the guard just as the Lord had said, and he said to me, 'Please buy my field in Anathoth in the territory of Benjamin because you have the right to possess it, and the right to redeem it belongs to you. Buy it for yourself.' So I knew that this was the word of the Lord.H2601H1730H1121H935H2691H4307H1697H3068H559H7069H7704H6068H776H1144H4941H3425H1353H7069H3045H1697H3068 9"Then I bought the field in Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel. I weighed out the silver for him?seventeen shekels of silver.H7069H7704H2601H1730H1121H6068H8254H3701H7651H6235H8255H3701 10I signed the deed and sealed it. I called in witnesses and used scales to weigh out the silver.H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H8254H3701H3976 11Then I took the deed of purchase—both the sealed one with the terms and conditions and the open one—12and I gave the deed of purchase to Neriah's son Baruch, the grandson of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel, in the presence of the witnesses who signed the deed of pu rchase, and in the presence of all the Judeans sitting in the courtyard of the guard.H3947H5612H4736H2856H4687H2706H1540 12(Omitted) 13In their presence, I instructed Baruch as follows:H6680H1263H5869H559 14'This is what the Lord of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel, says: "Take these deeds?both this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed—and put them in a clay pot so they'll last for a long time."H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3947H5612H5612H4736H2856H5612H1540H5414H2789H3627H5975H7227H3117 15For this is what the Lord of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel, says: "Houses, fields, and vineyards will again be bought in this land."'H559H3068H6635H430H3478H1004H7704H3754H7069H776

Jeremiah’s Prayer

16"After I had given the deed of purchase to Neriah's son Baruch, I prayed to the Lord:H310H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H6419H3068H559 17'Lord! Look, you made the heavens and the earth with your great power and your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for you!H162H136H3069H6213H8064H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H1697H6381 18You, the great God, the mighty one, show gracious love to thousands and repay the parents' iniquity to their children after them. The Lord of the Heavenly Armies is his name.H6213H2617H505H7999H5771H1H2436H1121H310H1419H1368H410H3068H6635H8034 19You are great in regards to your purposes and mighty in regards to your works. Your eyes are open to everything that people do, and will reward each one according to their ways and just as their actions deserve.H1419H6098H7227H5950H5869H6491H1870H1121H120H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 20You are the one who performed signs and wonders in the land of Egypt and continue to do so until this day, both in Israel and among the rest of humanity. You made a reputation for yourself that continues to this day.H7760H226H4159H776H4714H3117H3478H120H6213H8034H3117 21By your strong hand and outstretched arm, and with great terror, you brought your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders.H3318H5971H3478H776H4714H226H4159H2389H3027H5186H248H1419H4172 22And you gave them this land which you had promised their ancestors that you would give them?a land flowing with milk and honey.H5414H776H7650H1H5414H776H2100H2461H1706 23They came and took possession of it, but they didn't obey you or walk according to your Law. They didn't do what you commanded them to do, so you caused all this calamity to happen to them.H935H3423H8085H6963H1980H8451H6213H6680H6213H7451H7122 24Look, the siege ramps have reached the city to take it. Because of the sword, famine, and plague, the city has been given over to the Chaldeans who are fighting against it. What you said has happened, and you are watching it occur!H5550H935H5892H3920H5892H5414H3027H3778H3898H6440H2719H7458H1698H1696H7200 25Lord, you have told me, "Buy the field for yourself with money and call in witnesses," even though the city is being given over to the Chaldeans.'"H559H136H3069H7069H7704H3701H5749H5707H5892H5414H3027H3778

Prophecy of Jerusalem’s Fall

26Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:H1697H3068H3414H559 27"Look, I am the Lord, the God who rules over all flesh. Is anything too difficult for me?H3068H430H1320H1697H6381 28Therefore, this is what the Lord says: "I'm about to give this city into the hands of the Chaldeans and Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and he will capture it.H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H3778H3027H5019H4428H894H3920 29The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will come, set this city on fire, and burn it along with the houses on whose roofs incense was burned to Baal and liquid offerings were poured out to other gods in order to provoke me.H3778H3898H5892H935H3341H784H5892H8313H1004H1406H6999H1168H5258H5262H312H430H3707 30Indeed, the Israelites and Judeans have been doing only evil in my presence since their youth. Indeed, the Israelites have done nothing but provoke me by what they have made with their hands," declares the Lord.H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5271H1121H3478H3707H4639H3027H5002H3068 31"Indeed, this city has provoked me to anger and wrath from the day they built it until now, and so I'll remove it from my sightH5892H639H2534H3117H1129H3117H5493H6440 32because of all the evil that the Israelites and Judeans have done to provoke me. They, their kings, their officials, their priests, their prophets, the people of Judah, and those living in Jerusalem have done these things.H7451H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H3707H4428H8269H3548H5030H376H3063H3427H3389 33They have turned their backs to me rather than their faces. Even though I taught them, teaching them again and again, they didn't listen to accept correction.H6437H6203H6440H3925H7925H3925H8085H3947H4148 34They put their detestable idols in the house that is called by my name and defiled it.H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 35They built the high places of Baal that are in the Hinnom Valley in order to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech?something that I didn't command, nor did it ever enter my mind for them to require this utterly repugnant thing—and lead Judah into sin."H1129H1116H1168H1516H1121H2011H1121H1323H5674H4432H6680H5927H3820H6213H8441H3063H2398

A Promise of Restoration

36"Now therefore, says the Lord God of Israel concerning this city about which you are saying, 'It is being given into the hand of the king of Babylon by sword, famine, and plague.'H559H3068H430H3478H5892H559H5414H3027H4428H894H2719H7458H1698 37I'm about to gather my people from all the lands where I've driven them in my anger, wrath, and great indignation. I'll bring them back to this place and let them live in safety.H6908H776H5080H639H2534H1419H7110H7725H4725H3427H983 38They'll be my people, and I'll be their God.H5971H430 39I'll give them one heart and one lifestyle so they'll fear me always for their own good and for the good of their descendants after them.H5414H259H3820H259H1870H3372H3117H2896H1121H310 40I'll make an everlasting covenant with them that I won't turn away from doing good for them. I'll put the fear of me in their hearts so they won't turn away from me.H3772H5769H1285H7725H310H3190H5414H3374H3824H5493 41I'll rejoice over them to do good for them, and I'll faithfully plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.H7797H2895H5193H776H571H3820H5315 42"Indeed, this is what the Lord says: 'Just as I'm bringing all this great disaster on this people, so I'll bring on them all the good things that I'm promising concerning them.H559H3068H935H1419H7451H5971H935H2896H1696 43Fields will be bought in this land about which you will say, "It is a desolate place without people or animals. It is given into the hands of the Chaldeans."H7704H7069H776H559H8077H120H929H5414H3027H3778 44People will buy fields for money, sign deeds, seal them, and call witnesses in the land of Benjamin, in the areas around Jerusalem, in the towns of Judah, the towns of the hill country, the towns of the Shephelah, and the towns of the Negev, for I'll restore their fortunes,' declares the Lord."H7069H7704H3701H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H7622H7725H5002H3068
