Jeremiah 1:4-10

Now the word of YHWH came to me and said:
“Before I formed you in the womb, I chose you.  Before you were born, I dedicated you.  I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
I said, “But Sovereign YHWH!  I don’t know how to speak!  I’m too young!”
But YHWH said, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’  Now, go wherever I send you.  And say whatever I command you.  Do not fear anyone, for I am with you to protect you.  It is YHWH who speaks.”
Then YHWH touched my mouth and said to me, “Look, I am putting my words in your mouth.  This day I appoint you over nations and territories, to uproot and to tear down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
