12  Yirmiyahu was going to leave Yerushalayim and go to the territory of Binyamin to share in some property there among the people.

יב  וַיֵּצֵא יִרְמְיָהוּ מִירוּשָׁלַ ִם לָלֶכֶת אֶרֶץ בִּנְיָמִן לַחֲלִק מִשָּׁם בְּתוֹךְ הָעָם׃

 37:12   And go to the territory of Binyamin 

The Egyptians manage to temporarily repulse the Babylonian invaders, thus ending the siege of Yerushalayim. With the siege lifted, Yirmiyahu leaves the capital for the tribal land of Binyamin, to inherit a portion of land. The area of Binyamin encompasses the mountain ridges found to the immediate north of Yerushalayim, and included Yirmiyahu’s hometown, the priestly city Anatot. This has been identified with the contemporary Arab village of Anata, which is now a neighborhood of Jerusalem.
