The Prophet Jeremiah Is Called By God

4 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified[a] you;
[b]ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Then said I:

“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”

But the Lord said to me:

“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Do not be afraid of their faces,
For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
