The Call of Jeremiah 4The word of the LORD came to me, saying,

5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew Or chose you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

6“Alas, Sovereign LORD,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” 7But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.

8Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD .
