Jeremiah Buys a Field

32The 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 2For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah's house.H4428H894H2428H6696H3389H3414H5030H3607H2691H4307H4428H3063H1004 3For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, "Why do you prophesy and say, 'Thus says the LORD: "Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;H6667H4428H3063H3607H559H5012H559H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H4428H894H3920 4"and Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape from the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him face to face, and see him eye to eye;H6667H4428H3063H4422H3027H3778H5414H5414H3027H4428H894H1696H6310H6310H5869H7200H5869 5"then he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there he shall be until I visit him," says the LORD; "though you fight with the Chaldeans, you shall not succeed"'?"H3212H6667H894H6485H5002H3068H3898H3778H6743 6And Jeremiah said, "The word of the LORD came to me, saying,H3414H559H1697H3068H559 7'Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you, saying, "Buy my field which is in Anathoth, for the right of redemption is yours to buy it."'H2601H1121H7967H1730H935H559H7069H7704H6068H4941H1353H7069 8"Then Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said to me, 'Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption yours; buy it for yourself.' Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.H2601H1730H1121H935H2691H4307H1697H3068H559H7069H7704H6068H776H1144H4941H3425H1353H7069H3045H1697H3068 9"So I bought the field from Hanamel, the son of my uncle who was in Anathoth, and weighed out to him the money—seventeen shekels of silver.H7069H7704H2601H1730H1121H6068H8254H3701H7651H6235H8255H3701 10"And I signed the deed and sealed it, took witnesses, and weighed the money on the scales.H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H8254H3701H3976 11"So I took the purchase deed, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open;H3947H5612H4736H2856H4687H2706H1540 12"and I gave the purchase deed to Baruch the son of Neriah, son of Mahseiah, in the presence of Hanamel my uncle's son, and in the presence of the witnesses who signed the purchase deed, before all the Jews who sat in the court of the prison.H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H1121H4271H5869H2601H1730H5869H5707H3789H5612H4736H5869H3064H3427H2691H4307 13"Then I charged Baruch before them, saying,H6680H1263H5869H559 14'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days."H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3947H5612H5612H4736H2856H5612H1540H5414H2789H3627H5975H7227H3117 15'For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land."'H559H3068H6635H430H3478H1004H7704H3754H7069H776

Jeremiah Prays for Understanding

16"Now when I had delivered the purchase deed to Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed to the LORD, saying:H310H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H6419H3068H559 17'Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.H162H136H3069H6213H8064H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H1697H6381 18'You show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the LORD of hosts.H6213H2617H505H7999H5771H1H2436H1121H310H1419H1368H410H3068H6635H8034 19'You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.H1419H6098H7227H5950H5869H6491H1870H1121H120H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 20'You have set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, to this day, and in Israel and among other men; and You have made Yourself a name, as it is this day.H7760H226H4159H776H4714H3117H3478H120H6213H8034H3117 21'You have brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and with great terror;H3318H5971H3478H776H4714H226H4159H2389H3027H5186H248H1419H4172 22'You have given them this land, of which You swore to their fathers to give them—"a land flowing with milk and honey."H5414H776H7650H1H5414H776H2100H2461H1706 23'And they came in and took possession of it, but they have not obeyed Your voice or walked in Your law. They have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do; therefore You have caused all this calamity to come upon them.H935H3423H8085H6963H1980H8451H6213H6680H6213H7451H7122 24'Look, the siege mounds! They have come to the city to take it; and the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because of the sword and famine and pestilence. What You have spoken has happened; there You see it!H5550H935H5892H3920H5892H5414H3027H3778H3898H6440H2719H7458H1698H1696H7200 25'And You have said to me, O Lord GOD, "Buy the field for money, and take witnesses"!—yet the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans.'"H559H136H3069H7069H7704H3701H5749H5707H5892H5414H3027H3778

God’s Assurance of the People’s Return

26Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,H1697H3068H3414H559 27"Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?H3068H430H1320H1697H6381 28"Therefore thus says the LORD: 'Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it.H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H3778H3027H5019H4428H894H3920 29'And the Chaldeans who fight against this city shall come and set fire to this city and burn it, with the houses on whose roofs they have offered incense to Baal and poured out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke Me to anger;H3778H3898H5892H935H3341H784H5892H8313H1004H1406H6999H1168H5258H5262H312H430H3707 30'because the children of Israel and the children of Judah have done only evil before Me from their youth. For the children of Israel have provoked Me only to anger with the work of their hands," says the LORD.H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5271H1121H3478H3707H4639H3027H5002H3068 31'For this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My fury from the day that they built it, even to this day; so I will remove it from before My faceH5892H639H2534H3117H1129H3117H5493H6440 32'because of all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger—they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.H7451H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H3707H4428H8269H3548H5030H376H3063H3427H3389 33'And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not listened to receive instruction.H6437H6203H6440H3925H7925H3925H8085H3947H4148 34'But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 35'And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.'H1129H1116H1168H1516H1121H2011H1121H1323H5674H4432H6680H5927H3820H6213H8441H3063H2398 36"Now therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, 'It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence':H559H3068H430H3478H5892H559H5414H3027H4428H894H2719H7458H1698 37'Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely.H6908H776H5080H639H2534H1419H7110H7725H4725H3427H983 38'They shall be My people, and I will be their God;H5971H430 39'then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them.H5414H259H3820H259H1870H3372H3117H2896H1121H310 40'And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me.H3772H5769H1285H7725H310H3190H5414H3374H3824H5493 41'Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.'H7797H2895H5193H776H571H3820H5315 42"For thus says the LORD: 'Just as I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will bring on them all the good that I have promised them.H559H3068H935H1419H7451H5971H935H2896H1696 43'And fields will be bought in this land of which you say, "It is desolate, without man or beast; it has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans."H7704H7069H776H559H8077H120H929H5414H3027H3778 44'Men will buy fields for money, sign deeds and seal them, and take witnesses, in the land of Benjamin, in the places around Jerusalem, in the cities of Judah, in the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the lowland, and in the cities of the South; for I will cause their captives to return,' says the LORD."H7069H7704H3701H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H7622H7725H5002H3068
