Bible: Jeremiah 32:9-15

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. 1  32:10 I signed the deed of purchase, 2  sealed it, and had some men serve as witnesses to the purchase. 3  I weighed out the silver for him on a scale. 32:11 There were two copies of the deed of purchase. One was sealed and contained the order of transfer and the conditions of purchase. 4  The other was left unsealed. 32:12 I took both copies of the deed of purchase 5  and gave them to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah. I gave them to him in the presence 6  of my cousin 7  Hanamel, the witnesses who had signed the deed of purchase, and all the Judeans who were housed in the courtyard of the guardhouse. 32:13 In the presence of all these people I instructed Baruch, 32:14 The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 8  says, “Take these documents, both the sealed copy of the deed of purchase and the unsealed copy. Put them in a clay jar so that they may be preserved for a long time to come.”’ 9  32:15 For the Lord God of Israel who rules over all 10  says, “Houses, fields, and vineyards will again be bought in this land.”’ 11
