Jeremiah 1:4-9 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)
Jeremiah’s Call and Commission
4 Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,
5 ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
6 Then I said, ‘Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.’ 7 But the Lord said to me,
‘Do not say, “I am only a boy”;
9 Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the Lord said to me,
‘Now I have put my words in your mouth.
