'Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle is coming to you, saying, "Buy for yourself my field which is at Anathoth, for you have the right of redemption to buy [it]."'
"Then Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the guard according to the word of the LORD and said to me, 'Buy my field, please, that is at Anathoth, 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 word of the LORD.
"I bought the field which was at Anathoth from Hanamel my uncle's son, and I weighed out the silver for him, seventeen shekels of silver.
"I signed and sealed the deed, and called in witnesses, and weighed out the silver on the scales.
"Then I took the deeds of purchase, both the sealed [copy containing] the terms and conditions and the open [copy];
and I gave the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, 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, before all the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard.
"And I commanded Baruch in their presence, saying,
'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time."
