Set during the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem, Jeremiah 32 tells the story of how the prophet gives financial assistance to his cousin.

ירמיה לב:ו וַיֹּאמֶר יִרְמְיָהוּ הָיָה דְּבַר יְ־הוָה אֵלַי לֵאמֹר. לב:ז הִנֵּה חֲנַמְאֵל בֶּן שַׁלֻּם דֹּדְךָ בָּא אֵלֶיךָ לֵאמֹר קְנֵה לְךָ אֶת שָׂדִי אֲשֶׁר בַּעֲנָתוֹת כִּי לְךָ מִשְׁפַּט הַגְּאֻלָּה לִקְנוֹת.
Jer 32:6 Jeremiah said: “The word of YHWH came to me: 32:7 ‘Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, will come to you and say, “Buy my land in Anathoth, for you are next in succession to redeem it by purchase.”’”[1]
