Daily Verse Reading – Jeremiah 1:1, 4-10

Jeremiah 1:1, 4-10
70ac789e2af9f9990cde9e2dee75f27a1The words of Jeremiah, the son of Hilki’ah, of the priests who were in An’athoth in the land of Benjamin, 4Now the word of the LORD came to me saying, 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.” 6Then I said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, 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 whatever I command you you shall speak. 8Be not afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.” 9Then the LORD put forth his hand and touched my mouth; and the LORD said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. 10See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
