Yahweh Appoints Jeremiah as a Prophet to the Nations

1 The words of Jeremiah, the son of Hilkiah, among the priests who [were] in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin, 2 [to] whom the word of Yahweh came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, the king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign. 3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, the king of Judah, until the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, the king of Judah, until the exile of Jerusalem in the fifth month. 4 And the word of Yahweh came to me, {saying},a 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you came out from [the] womb I consecrated you; I appointed you [as] a prophet to the nations." 6 Then I said, "Ah, Lord Yahweh! Look, I do not know [how] to speak, for I [am] a youth."b
