Hanameel

Additional Links

Hanam´eel, a kinsman of Jeremiah, to whom, before the siege of Jerusalem, he sold a field which he possessed in Anathoth, a town of the Levites (). If this field belonged to Hanameel as a Levite, the sale of it would imply that an ancient law had fallen into disuse (); but it is possible that it may have been the property of Hanameel in right of his mother. The transaction was conducted with all the forms of legal transfer, and was intended to evince the certainty of restoration from the approaching exile, by showing that possessions which could be established by documents would yet be of future value to the possessor (B.C. 587).
