Jeremiah 1:4-10

CEB 4 The LORD's word came to me: NRS 4 Now the word of the Lord came to me saying, CEB 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." NRS 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations." CEB 6 "Ah, LORD God," I said, "I don't know how to speak because I'm only a child." NRS 6 Then I said, "Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy." CEB 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. NRS 7 But the Lord said to me, "Do not say, "I am only a boy'; for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you. CEB 8 Don't be afraid of them, because I'm with you to rescue you," declares the LORD. NRS 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord." CEB 9 Then the LORD stretched out his hand, touched my mouth, and said to me, "I'm putting my words in your mouth. NRS 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. CEB 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." NRS 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."
