Jeremiah’s Call and First Visions

4The Lord gave me this message.H1697H3068H559 5“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”H2962H3335H990H3045H3318H7358H6942H5414H5030H1471 6“O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”H559H162H136H3069H3045H1696H5288 7The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.H3068H559H559H5288H3212H7971H6680H1696 8And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!”H3372H6440H5337H5002H3068 9Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put my words in your mouth!H3068H7971H3027H5060H6310H3068H559H5414H1697H6310 10Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms. Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow. Others you must build up and plant.”H7200H3117H6485H1471H4467H5428H5422H6H2040H1129H5193 11Then the Lord said to me, “Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?” And I replied, “I see a branch from an almond tree.”H1697H3068H559H3414H7200H559H7200H4731H8247 12And the Lord said, “That’s right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans.”H559H3068H3190H7200H8245H1697H6213 13Then the Lord spoke to me again and asked, “What do you see now?” And I replied, “I see a pot of boiling water, spilling from the north.”H1697H3068H8145H559H7200H559H7200H5301H5518H6440H6440H6828 14“Yes,” the Lord said, “for terror from the north will boil out on the people of this land.H3068H559H6828H7451H6605H3427H776 15Listen! I am calling the armies of the kingdoms of the north to come to Jerusalem. I, the Lord, have spoken! “They will set their thrones at the gates of the city. They will attack its walls and all the other towns of Judah.H7121H4940H4467H6828H5002H3068H935H5414H376H3678H6607H8179H3389H2346H5439H5892H3063 16I will pronounce judgment on my people for all their evil—for deserting me and burning incense to other gods. Yes, they worship idols made with their own hands!H1696H4941H5921H7451H5800H6999H312H430H7812H4639H3027 17“Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them.H247H4975H6965H1696H6680H2865H6440H2865H6440 18For see, today I have made you strong like a fortified city that cannot be captured, like an iron pillar or a bronze wall. You will stand against the whole land—the kings, officials, priests, and people of Judah.H589H5414H3117H4013H5892H1270H5982H5178H2346H776H4428H3063H8269H3548H5971H776 19They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the Lord, have spoken!”H3898H3201H5002H3068H5337
