Jeremiah 32:14-15

Context
32:14 ‘The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 1  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.”’ 2  32:15 For the Lord God of Israel who rules over all 3  says, “Houses, fields, and vineyards will again be bought in this land.”’ 4 

1 tn Heb “Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.” For this title see 7:3 and the study notes on 2:19.

2 tn Heb “many days.” See BDB s.v. יוֹם 5.b for this usage.

3 tn Heb “Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.” For this title see 7:3 and the study notes on 2:19.

4 sn The significance of the symbolic act performed by Jeremiah as explained here was a further promise (see the “again” statements in 31:4, 5, 23 and the “no longer” statements in 31:12, 29, 34, 40) of future restoration beyond the destruction implied in vv. 3-5.
