The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, one of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, Bible see other translations

“Anathoth.” It was one of the 48 cities alloted to the Levites in Israel, and was in the territory of the tribe of Benjamin (Josh. 21:18). It is likely that it is modern day Anata, a town 3 miles north of Jerusalem.
