The Prophet Is Called

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

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

Then said I:

(D)“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 (E)whatever I command you, you shall speak.
(F)Do not be afraid of their faces,
For (G)I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
