So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

32:8 redemption is thine. Note Leviticus 25:25. Jeremiah’s home and relatives (all, like he, being Levites) were in Anathoth, so that he would have a kinsman’s right to buy the land that was in danger of being lost to someone outside the family and tribe.
