Jeremiah's Land Purchase

1 [This is] the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of Zedekiaha king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar.b 2 At that time, the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was imprisoned in the guard's courtyard in the palace of the king of Judah. 3 Zedekiah king of Judah had imprisoned him, saying: "Why are you prophesying, 'This is what the Lord says: Look, I am about to hand this city over to Babylon's king, and he will capture it. 4 Zedekiah king of Judah will not escape from the Chaldeans; indeed, he will certainly be handed over to Babylon's king. They will speak face to facec and meet eye to eye.d 5 He will take Zedekiah to Babylon where he will stay until I attend to him'-[this is] the Lord's declaration. 'You will fight the Chaldeans, but you will not succeed'?"e 6 Jeremiah replied, "The word of the Lord came to me: 7 'Watch! Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, is coming to you to say: Buy my field in Anathothf for yourself, for you own the right of redemptiong to buy it.'
