Jeremiah 13:5-7

Context
13:5 So I went and buried them at Perath 1  as the Lord had ordered me to do. 13:6 Many days later the Lord said to me, “Go at once to Perath and get 2  the shorts I ordered you to bury there.” 13:7 So I went to Perath and dug up 3  the shorts from the place where I had buried them. I found 4  that they were ruined; they were good for nothing.

1 tc The translation reads בִּפְרָתָה (bifratah) with 4QJera as noted in W. L. Holladay, Jeremiah (Hermeneia), 1:393 instead of בִּפְרָת (bifrat) in the MT.

2 tn Heb “Get from there.” The words “from there” are not necessary to the English sentence. They would lead to a redundancy later in the verse, i.e., “from there…bury there.”

3 tn Heb “dug and took.”

4 tn Heb “And behold.”
