Treasury of Scripture

Thus said the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.

Take.

Jeremiah 32:10-12
And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances…









(14) Put them in an earthen vessel . . .--We are reminded of the "earthen vessels" in which men kept their most precious treasures (2Corinthians 4:7). Such a vessel was obviously a better protection against damp or decay than one of wood, and was, as it were, the "safe" of a Jewish household. (See Note on Jeremiah 41:8.) In the "many days" we have an implied warning to the listeners that they were not to expect a speedy deliverance or restoration, however certain might be their assurance that it would come at last.
