And Jeremiahsaid, "The word of the LORDcame to me, saying,
7'Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle is coming to you, saying, "Buy for yourself my fieldwhich is at 1Anathoth, for you have the 2right of redemption to buy it."'
"Then Hanamel my uncle'ssoncame to me in the 3court of the guard according to the word of the LORD and said to me, 'Buy my field, please, that is at 4Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin; for you have the right of possession and the redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.' Then I knew that this was the 5word of the LORD.
"I bought the fieldwhich was at Anathoth from Hanamel my uncle'sson, and I 6weighed out the silver for him, seventeen7shekels of silver.
"I a8signed and 9sealed the deed, and 10called in witnesses, and weighed out the silver on the scales.
"Then I took the deeds of purchase, both the sealed copy containing the 11terms and conditions and the open copy;
and I gave the deed of purchase to 12Baruch the son of 13Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the sight of Hanamel my uncle's son and in the sight of the witnesses who signed the deed of purchase, beforeall the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard.
"And I commandedBaruch in their presence, saying,
14'Thussays the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Takethesedeeds, thissealeddeed of purchase and thisopendeed, and put them in an earthenwarejar, that they may blast a longtime."
'For thussays the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "14Houses and fields and vineyards will again be bought in thisland."'
