Jeremiah 32

32:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth
 year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which [was] the eighteenth year
 of Nebuchadrezzar.
32:2 For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and
 Jeremiah the prophet was confined in the court of the prison,
 which [was] in the king of Judah's house.
32:3 For Zedekiah king of Judah had confined him, saying, Why
 dost thou prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I
 will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and
 he shall take it;
32:4 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 mouth to
 mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;
32:5 And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he
 be until I visit him, saith the LORD: though ye fight with the
 Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper.
32:6 And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came to me, saying,
32:7 Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thy uncle shall come to
 thee, saying, Buy for thee my field that [is] in Anathoth: for
 the right of redemption [is] thine to buy [it].
32:8 So Hanameel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the
 prison, according to the word of the LORD, and said to 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. Then I
 knew that this [was] the word of the LORD.
32:9 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.
32:10 And I subscribed the contract, and sealed [it], and took
 witnesses, and weighed [him] the money in the balances.
32:11 So I took the evidence of the purchase, [both] that which
 was sealed [according] to the law and custom, and that which
 was open:
32:12 And I gave the evidence of the purchase to Baruch the son
 of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel my
 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.
32:13 And I charged Baruch before them, saying,
32:14 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take
 these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both that which
 is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an
 earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.
32:15 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
 Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in
 this land.
32:16 Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase to
 Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed to the LORD, saying,
32:17 Ah LORD God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the
 earth by thy great power and out-stretched arm, [and] there is
 nothing too hard for thee:
32:18 Thou showest loving-kindness to thousands, and
 recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of
 their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, JEHOVAH
 of hosts, [is] his name,
32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thy eyes [are]
 open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one
 according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his
32:20 Who hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt,
 [even] to this day, and in Israel, and among [other] men; and
 hast made thee a name, as at this day;
32:21 And hast brought forth thy people Israel from the land of
 Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and
 with an out-stretched arm, and with great terror;
32:22 And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to
 their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;
32:23 And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not
 thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of
 all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast
 caused all this evil to come upon them:
32:24 Behold the mounts, they are come to the city to take it;
 and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that
 fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and
 of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass;
 and behold, thou seest [it].
32:25 And thou hast said to me, O LORD GOD, Buy thee the field
 for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the
 hand of the Chaldeans.
32:26 Then came the word of the LORD to Jeremiah, saying,
32:27 Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there
 any thing too hard for me?
32:28 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this
 city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of
 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it:
32:29 And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall
 come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses,
 upon whose roofs they have offered incense to Baal, and poured
 out drink-offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.
32:30 For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have
 done evil only before me from their youth: for the children of
 Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their
 hands, saith the LORD.
32:31 For this city hath been to me [as] a provocation of my
 anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even to
 this day; that I should remove it from before my face,
32:32 Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of
 the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to
 anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and
 their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of
32:33 And they have turned to me the back, and not the face:
 though I taught them, rising early and teaching [them], yet
 they have not hearkened to receive instruction.
32:34 But they set their abominations in the house, which is
 called by my name, to defile it.
32:35 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
 commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they
 should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
32:36 And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel,
 concerning this city, of which ye say, It shall be delivered
 into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the
 famine, and by the pestilence;
32:37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I
 have driven them in my anger, and in my fury, and in great
 wrath; and I will bring them again to this place, and I will
 cause them to dwell in safety.
32:38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
32:39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may
 fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children
 after them:
32:40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I
 will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put
 my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
32:41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will
 plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with
 my whole soul.
32:42 For thus saith the LORD; As I have brought all this great
 evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good
 that I have promised them.
32:43 And fields shall be bought in this land, of which ye say,
 [It is] desolate without man or beast; it is given into the
 hand of the Chaldeans.
32:44 Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences,
 and seal [them], and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin,
 and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah,
 and in the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the
 valley, and in the cities of the south: for I will cause their
 captivity to return, saith the LORD.
