Jeremiah 1:6-106Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, a I do not know how to speak, b for I am only a youth.” 7But 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 c whatever I command you, you shall speak.
8 d Do not be afraid of them,
e for I am with you to deliver you,
declares the Lord.”
9 f Then the Lord put out his hand and g touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, “Behold, I have put h my words in your mouth.
10See, I have set you this day i over nations and over kingdoms,
j to pluck up and to break down,
to destroy and to overthrow,
to build and to plant.”
