Bible: Jeremiah 32:6-9

32:6 So now, Jeremiah said, “The Lord told me, 1  32:7 Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, will come to you soon. He will say to you, “Buy my field at Anathoth because you are entitled 2  as my closest relative to buy it.”’ 3  32:8 Now it happened just as the Lord had said! My cousin Hanamel 4  came to me in the courtyard of the guardhouse. He said to me, ‘Buy my field which is at Anathoth in the territory of the tribe of Benjamin. Buy it for yourself since you are entitled as my closest relative to take possession of it for yourself.’ When this happened, I recognized that the Lord had indeed spoken to me. 32:9 So I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel. I weighed out seven ounces of silver and gave it to him to pay for it. 5
