The Interpretation of the Symbolic Action

33: 1-26

587 BC at the end of the eleven-year reign of Zedekiah

Jeremiah interprets his ninth symbolic action of buying a field in Anathoth (see Fs – Jeremiah Buys a Field). This chapter is divided into two sections. First, the near historical restoration of Judah seen in 33:1-14. The futility of resistance to Babylon is again stressed, and the promise of a return from captivity is repeated. Second, the far eschatological restoration of the united nation of Isra’el is seen in 33:15-26.
