1A.(6) And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
1B.(7) Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee,
1C. saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it.
1B’.(8) So Hanameel mine uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD,
1C’. and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself.
1A’. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.
2A.(9) And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle’s son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.(10) And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances.
2B. (11) So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open:(12) And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.
2B’.(13) And I charged Baruch before them, saying, (14) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.
2A’.(15) For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
