Jeremiah 1:6

6 But I said, "Hold it, Master God! Look at me. I don't know anything. I'm only a boy!"

Jeremiah 1:6 In-Context

4 This is what God said:
5 "Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations - that's what I had in mind for you."
6 But I said, "Hold it, Master God! Look at me. I don't know anything. I'm only a boy!"
7 God told me, "Don't say, 'I'm only a boy.' I'll tell you where to go and you'll go there. I'll tell you what to say and you'll say it.
8 Don't be afraid of a soul. I'll be right there, looking after you." God's Decree.
