The Call of Jeremiah

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

(A)“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born (B)I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet (C)to the nations.”

Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, (D)I do not know how to speak, (E)for I am only a youth.” But the Lord said to me,

“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’;
for to all to whom I send you, you shall go,
and (F)whatever I command you, you shall speak.
(G)Do not be afraid of them,
(H)for I am with you to deliver you,
declares the Lord.”
