Jeremiah 32:6-15

CEB 6 Jeremiah said, The LORD's word came to me: NRS 6 Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came to me: CEB 7 Your cousin Hanamel, Shallum's son, is on his way to see you; and when he arrives, he will tell you: "Buy my field in Anathoth, for by law you are next in line to purchase it." NRS 7 Hanamel son of your uncle Shallum is going to come to you and say, "Buy my field that is at Anathoth, for the right of redemption by purchase is yours." CEB 8 And just as the LORD had said, my cousin Hanamel showed up at the prison quarters and told me, "Buy my field in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for you are next in line and have a family obligation to purchase it." Then I was sure this was the LORD's doing. NRS 8 Then my cousin Hanamel came to me in the court of the guard, in accordance with the word of the Lord, and said to me, "Buy my field that is at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for the right of possession and redemption is yours; buy it for yourself." Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord. CEB 9 So I bought the field in Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel, and weighed out for him seventeen shekels of silver. NRS 9 And I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel, and weighed out the money to him, seventeen shekels of silver. CEB 10 I signed the deed, sealed it, had it witnessed, and weighed out the silver on the scales. NRS 10 I signed the deed, sealed it, got witnesses, and weighed the money on scales. CEB 11 Then I took the deed of purchase—the sealed copy, with its terms and conditions, and the unsealed copy— NRS 11 Then I took the sealed deed of purchase, containing the terms and conditions, and the open copy; CEB 12 and gave it to Baruch, Neriah's son and Mahseiah's grandson, before my cousin Hanamel and the witnesses named in the deed, as well as before all the Judeans who were present in the prison quarters. NRS 12 and I gave the deed of purchase to Baruch son of Neriah son of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel, in the presence of the witnesses who signed the deed of purchase, and in the presence of all the Judeans who were sitting in the court of the guard. CEB 13 I charged Baruch before all of them: NRS 13 In their presence I charged Baruch, saying, CEB 14 "The LORD of heavenly forces, the God of Israel, proclaims: Take these documents—this sealed deed of purchase along with the unsealed one—and put them into a clay container so they will last a long time. NRS 14 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Take these deeds, both this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, in order that they may last for a long time. CEB 15 The LORD of heavenly forces, the God of Israel, proclaims: Houses, fields, and vineyards will again be bought in this land." NRS 15 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Houses and fields and vineyards shall again be bought in this land.
