Jeremiah 1:4-8 CEB
The LORD’s word came to me:
“Before I created you in the womb I knew you;
before you were born I set you apart;
I made you a prophet to the nations.”
“Ah, LORD God,” I said, “I don’t know how to speak
because I’m only a child.”
The LORD responded,
“Don’t say, ‘I’m only a child.’
Where I send you, you must go;
what I tell you, you must say.
Don’t be afraid of them,
because I’m with you to rescue you,”
declares the LORD.
