Call of Jeremiah

4 The LORD's word came to me:

References for Jeremiah 1:4

      5 "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."
      6 "Ah, LORD God," I said, "I don't know how to speak because I'm only a child."
      7 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.
      8 Don't be afraid of them, because I'm with you to rescue you," declares the LORD.
      9 Then the LORD stretched out his hand, touched my mouth, and said to me, "I'm putting my words in your mouth.
      10 This very day I appoint you over nations and empires, to dig up and pull down, to destroy and demolish, to build and plant."
